Overview Change is the essential goal of the counseling process, as the author reminds us. This book provides us with an explanation of the idea that "substantial change requires the alteration of the heart."
Publishers Description 'While touching on many aspects of counseling, this book . . . is specifically designed to elucidate the process of counseling. I have often mentioned and illustrated that process, but not in the focused and systemic way that the four-step biblical process is set forth here. . . . This book presents a fresh perspective not only on how to counsel, but also on what measures to take at what stages of counseling.'---Jay Adams, from the prefaceChange is the essential goal of the counseling process. And, in the author's words, 'substantial change requires the alteration of the heart.' How can a Christian counselor facilitate such change? The answer, of course, may be found in Scripture, specifically in 2 Timothy 3:14--17.Jay Adams is a well-known counselor who bases his whole approach on Scripture. This book provides an unparalleled opportunity to see how he discovers and applies biblical principles as well as the way in which Scripture functions as the basis for his counseling approach. This book answers two questions: 'How does a counselor help people change?' and, 'How does Scripture provide the source of a counselor's method?'How to Help People Change has much to say about the ongoing discussion of the relationship between theology and psychology in the enterprise of Christian counseling.
