Item description for Counseling Women: A Narrative, Pastoral Approach by Christie Cozad Neuger...
Overview In this signal volume, Christie Neuger offers a new feminist paradigm for radical, effective, empowering counseling for women. She contends that pastors must take up the challenge of pastoral counseling, especially in lgith of the revolutionary pastoral implications of gender studies and feminist theology, as well as the continuing personal and social effects of sexism. Neuger's work promises to aid counselors "to help women resist and transform the negative effects of a woman-unfriendly culture" and so to reclaim their stories, their strength, and their lives.

Neuger Advances Beyond Feminism Jul 10, 2006
It has been about twenty years since I have journeyed into pastoral counseling approaches to the care of women. Neuger teaches me a lesson about keeping up to date in the literature. She treats the pastoral counseling of women in much broader contexts than the early feminist literature did. I felt invited to journey with her.
Helpful but incomplete Mar 15, 2005
Christie Cozad Neuger has written a book that is very helpful in understanding women that come from oppressed environments. The book seems to be written as if all women are oppressed and do not have voice. I do not believe that this is so, and found the recurring opinion of how oppresed women are to be a bit tedious. It does explain some of the details of what narrative therapy is, but it is lacking in case studies to explain how to acutally apply narrative therapy. This book is very helpful in assiting one to offer care to oppressed women, but the narrative therapy portion will have to be supplemented by other readings.
