Item description for Pastoral Care Emergencies (Creative Pastoral Care and Counseling) by David K. Switzer...

Drawing from 40 years of pastoral experience, Switzer discusses the attitude and act of caregiving, covering hospital calls, the dying and bereaved, suicide, divorce, domestic violence, psychiatric disorders, and more. The crucial question of when and how to refer is also addressed. Highly practical, yet sensitive to theological issues. You'll reach for this book often!

Publishers Description
David K. Switzer presents a clear, illustrative and practical manual for pastoral caregivers that covers the entire range of pastoral care emergencies typically faced by clergy, pastoral counselors, and lay caregivers such as Stephen Ministers and Befrienders. The chapters deal with issues such as situational crises, hospital emergencies, ministry to the dying, bereavement, suicide, divorce, domestic violence, substance abuse, and psychiatric emergencies. The question of when and how to refer is discussed in the final chapter. The book is highly practical in approach, but still extremely sensitive to the theological issues at hand in ministering to those experiencing great emotional, mental, and physical distress.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pastoral Care Emergencies (Creative Pastoral Care and Counseling)?

Pastoral Care in Emergencies  Oct 20, 2007
I would recommend this book to ALL those who do pastoral visitations, Clergy and Laity. I'm a second year formation student studying to become a Priest. Every page was crampact with usefull information, with recommendations for furuthur study.

Not in depth enough  Jun 8, 2007
I like the author but in this book, it just isnt enough information to apply to a crisis situation. There is a lot of useful facts but when it comes down to actually talking to the person in crisis, it fails to give you an idea of what to say or it is too vague, however, it does mention what not to say, which is also very important.
It is a great book for those interested in introductory knowledge and can even be used as a reference.
For those serious students of counseling, I don't think it goes in depth enough. It is well written however, and still a useful read.
