This creative model draws insights from psychodynamic, person-centred and narrative approaches to counselling.

. Part One focuses on the key tasks, skills and relational qualities that combine to make a good pastoral carer or counsellor.
. Part Two covers three key areas of specific concern in church and faith community contexts: conflicts with beliefs and values; conflicts of power and sexuality; and conflicts with guilt, shame and forgiveness.

The pastoral carer who reads this book will be better equipped to continue the vital role which they play in the life of church or faith communities.
