The Minister as Diagnostician

Paul Pruyser

$36.99

Paperback
Persons with personal problems often turn to their ministers for help. What kind of help do they hope to get that, rightly or wrongly, they do not expect from other professionals (psychiatrists, counselors, psychologists, or social workers)? The answer this book gives is that they want to be addressed in the terms and symbols of their faith, by authoritative standard-bearers of their faith.

- Publisher

In this book, Paul Pruyser explores the first step in the helping process: the diagnostic assessment. He develops a set of guidelines for conducting pastoral-diagnostic interviews that acknowledges the pastor's professional uniqueness and meets the parishioner's expectations.
