Crisis Counseling: A Guide for Pastors and Professionals
"Crisis Counseling" represents a much-needed resource for the professional, pastoral, and even lay counselor. Providing a biblically based framework for responding to a crisis event and the following times of trauma, loss, and grief, the book offers specific examples from Scripture and everyday life. It also treats specialized areas of crisis counseling, including how to work with children and teenagers in crisis circumstances and how to develop a crisis response team in a church setting. A concluding chapter helps readers deal with the stress, burnout, and secondary trauma that often accompanies crisis ministry and counseling.
