Book Description :

The purpose of this book is to help people overcome addictions to intoxicants and cope with life's stresses which make up the substance abuse counselor's core mission. Counselors start by evaluating an addicted person's physical and mental behaviors, which is the first step in writing an appropriate treatment plan. Depending on the complexity of the problem, a counselor may call in other professionals, such as psychiatrists and social workers. Job prospects are considered greater than average because of a growth in court-ordered referrals to treatment programs. Addiction is an irresistible urge to perform an irrational act and compulsion to dependence. There are 4.2 million pornographic websites, 68 million search engine requests, 42.7 percent of Internet users viewing pornography, and 100,000 websites of pornography. Religious and spiritual features buffer individuals from addictive and risky behaviors. This suggests that religiosity may play a role in beliefs about and the use of pornography. This book will help counselors and experts in the field of Christian counseling education and the interactions they have with clients. Simultaneously, there is certainly room for improvement in the training and preparation of counselors. The purpose of this book is to introduce the topic of training satisfaction, attitude toward pornography, addiction counseling self-efficacy, and the comfort of counselors in discussing sexual issues with clients, particularly Internet pornography.

Book Description :

My name is Dr. Pearlie Braswell-Tripp, Ph.D. I do not claim to be an expert in religion, psychology, or counseling, but experience has taught me a lot about all three. 2 Timothy, 2:15 says: “study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth.” I was born in 1943 in Rocky Mount, North Carolina into a Christian family. My family was attending the Rock of Ages Holiness Church. My mother, Sister Mary Jones-Braswell played the guitar; my sister, Christine Braswell played the piano and the rest of the family sang. There were seven of us girls. My sisters; Frances, Christine, Doretha, Verna, Margaree and Mary Lee were older. We were known as the Braswell sisters. My father was Lee Braswell, the most handsome man in town. I will never forget the great times we had in Rocky Mount, nor will I forget the great Rock of Ages Holiness Church. Our church was two blocks away from our home. That meant we had no real reason not to go. Many of my other relatives attended Rock of Ages also. My mother’s parents attended and so did her brother and his family. Those were what we now call “The good ole days.” I really loved those days. We traveled around singing the gospel until we left home for New York City in 1961. We were rooted and grounded in religion.

Book Description :

Sin. Grace. Christian Counseling. How do these fit together? In Christian theology sin and grace are intrinsically interconnected. Teacher and counselor Mark McMinn believes that Christian counseling, then, must also take account of both human sin and God's grace. For both sin and grace are distorted whenever one is emphasized without the other. McMinn, noting his own tendencies and the temptation to stereotype different Christian approaches to counseling along this theological divide, aims to help all those preparing for or currently serving in the helping professions. Expounding the proper relationship of sin and grace, McMinn shows how the full truth of the Christian gospel works itself out in the functional, structural and relational domains of an integrative model of psychotherapy.

What would it mean for Christian counseling and pastoral care to take seriously the idea that God intervenes in the world?
