Crisis Counseling unites the historic skills of pastoral care and counseling with current methods of crisis intervention from the fields of psychology and psychotherapy. Like the original edition, the present book is written for ministers - both clergy and lay - who are called upon to care for those in crisis. Its concepts and methods will be of value to mental health professionals and crisis hot-line volunteers as well.
Crisis Counseling discusses the minister's role as a crisis intervener, incorporating the understanding of recent crisis intervention theory and exploring how the dynamics of crisis is vital for effective crisis management.
