Item description for Competency Based Counseling (Creative Pastoral Care and Counseling) by Frank Thomas & Jack Cockburn...

Overview
Pastoral caregivers will find in this book a counseling method that builds positively on the client's strengths - a method that elicits resiliency, personal and community assets, and successful experiences from the client's past in order to foster positive change in the present.

Publishers Description
This book demonstrates how counselors can help people to use the resources they already have so they can address issues that come up in life. The authors show that most people have within themselves the strengths and resources to confront the issues positively that trouble their lives. The counseling method elicits resiliency, assets, and successful experiences from the client's past to foster positive change in the present. Case studies are included, drawn especially from marriage and family counseling.
