Since its publication a decade ago, Strategic Pastoral Counselling has been a standard text for pastoral counselling classes and a practical resource for parish clergy. This user-friendly book has been thoroughly revised and now includes two new chapters. Benner includes helpful case studies, a new appendix on contemporary ethical issues, and updated chapter bibliographies.

Benner maintains that clergy are uniquely positioned in their pastoral roles to combine the therapeutic approach of modern counselling with the framework of classic Christian soul care. This practical handbook will be a useful guide in that aspect of their ministry.

The average pastor spends six to eight hours each week counseling parishioners. Unfortunately, because of inadequate training and time pressures, many pastors find counseling to be a frustrating and unfulfilling facet of their call to provide spiritual direction and guidance. David Benner here provides clergy and church-based counselors with a counseling model that is both distinctively pastoral and psychologically informed. Benner's approach advocates maintaining narrowly focused objectives in a time-limited setting. Since its original publication, Strategic Pastoral Counseling has been a standard for pastoral counseling classes and a practical resource for clergy. This new edition has been thoroughly revised and includes two new chapters, helpful case studies, and a new appendix on contemporary ethical issues. It will continue to serve as a practical resource for pastoral care and as a standard text in counseling classes. Book jacket.
