The purpose of this book is to provide a brief overview of the counseling process and the different types of counseling interventions. It is intended to be an introduction to counseling for ministers rather than focusing on techniques or strategies.
This book is the first in a series of books that will address counseling issues for ministers. The ideas presented briefly in this book will be explored in more depth in additional books in the series.
Included is a glossary at the end of the book that provides a listing of terms used in this book and additional terms that are commonly used in counseling to help the reader learn the language of counseling.
