Counseling and Psychotherapy

A Christian Perspective

About

'Encyclopedic in scope, Counseling and Psychotherapy provides a comprehensive survey of the major approaches in psychological treatment. A lucid and incisive text that advances the field of Christian psychology.'--Edward P. Shafranske, Pepperdine University

This text combines cutting-edge expertise with deeply rooted Christian insights to offer a comprehensive survey of ten major counseling and psychotherapy approaches. For each approach, Siang-Yang Tan provides a substantial introduction, assessing the approach's effectiveness and the latest research findings or empirical evidence for it. He then critiques the approach from a Christian perspective. Tan also includes hypothetical transcripts of interventions for each major approach to help readers better understand the clinical work involved.

This book presents a Christian approach to counseling and psychotherapy that is Christ centered, biblically based, and Spirit filled. It will work well for marriage and family, social work, ministry, counseling, and psychology courses. Christian counselors and psychotherapists, pastors, chaplains, and lay counselors will also benefit from Tan's expertise.
