Item description for Christian Counseling; Healing the Tribes of Man by B. Lumpkin Joseph...
To successfully help those under our care, we must address the complete person. The person must be balanced in the areas of his or her spiritual, personal, family, and community views. An incorrect view of God can be as damaging as an imbalance of view of self. As counselors we must attend to all of these areas. It is no mistake that the New Testament word "save" means to heal. Salvation means to make a person whole, complete, and healthy. It is the absence of all that warps or blights the human personality and prevents full fellowship with God. Those who minister to others are strung up between heaven and earth, trying to ease pain and stop the cycle of hurt. To reach people the counselor must understand and be compassionate. He must see things from angles previously unknown to him. He must look at our hurting brothers and sisters and be able to understand why they made their decisions. This does not mean he would agree with them, only that he is familiar with their "type" of person and how they "tick." This knowledge will allow us to know how to minister to their needs.

Complete Guide - very good guide Jan 27, 2006
If the purpose of a counseling manual is to enable the counselor to understand and help the client, the book succeeds. The author categorizes people into 12 types loosely based on the attributes found in the twelve tribes of Israel. The oddest thing is the information about possible childhood or environmental influences that are likely to have caused the personalities to develop in certain ways. The information allows the counselor to quickly understand what the client went through in their formative years.
Other information forms a very wide scope of conditions and suggested approaches to "wholeness." These include addiction, anger, adultery, stress, loss of a loved one, recovery after abuse, domestic violence, and many other common conditions.
As a minister and counselor of many years, I found this book to be a very welcome relief from the fast-food, pop-psychology culture overtaking the church today. I give this one 5 stars.
