Over recent decades CWR's Waverley model of Christian counselling, pioneered by the late Selwyn Hughes, has influenced the clinical practice of thousands of people around the world. These counsellors have, in turn, influenced many more people. Those who are interested in pastoral care with local churches, rather than professional counselling, have also benefited from the insights and skills they have gained in CWR's introductory counselling courses. Written particularly for counsellors in training, but also providing an invaluable background to the Waverley model for those who are involved in pastoral care courses conducted by CWR, this book by Ron Kallmier, CWR tutor and until recently its Director of Training, gives a broad-based introduction to the model, with emphasis on the strongly biblical perspective it brings to counselling and caring, and aims to also be understandable to those following a different theoretical or practical approach. This is an ideal resource for those wanting to gain a foundational understanding of this respected teaching, as well as for CWR students.
Ron Kallmier, the Director of Training for CWR, is an experienced Australian teacher, counsellor and pastor. A graduate of Sydney & Macquarie Universities in Sydney, he has served as a high school pastor, teacher and counsellor, and as a denominational leader when, for ten years, he was Director of Christian Education and Youth Ministry in NSW. Before his first term as Senior Tutor with CWR in 1998-2000, Ron conducted a private counselling practice in Sydney at DaySpring Church, where, on his return to Sydney, he served as one of the pastoral team for five years, until returning to CWR early in 2006. His background in teaching at primary, secondary and tertiary levels, and his experience in local church pastoral ministry, blend with his academic training and experience in Christian Ministry, Education and Psychology. Ron brings many years of "hands on" experience into some of the key areas of CWR's ministry. Ron and his wife, Jeanette, have three daughters and three young grandsons. Arriving at CWR at a time of major transition, he has found there is a great opportunity to develop and strengthen the excellent work that has been done in the CWR area of Training and Events, which he now leads.
