The American Association of Christian Counselors and Tyndale House Publishers are committed to ministering to the spiritual needs of people. This book is part of the professional series that offers counselors the latest techniques, theory, and general information that is vital to their work. While many books have tried to integrate theology and psychology, this book takes another step and explores the importance of the spiritual disciplines in psychotherapy, helping counselors to integrate the biblical principles of forgiveness, redemption, restitution, prayer, and worship into their counseling techniques. Since its first publication in 1996, this book has quickly become a contemporary classic--a go-to handbook for integrating what we know is true from the disciplines of theology and psychology and how that impacts your daily walk with God. This book will help you integrate spiritual disciplines--such as prayer, Scripture reading, confession--into your own life and into counseling others.

Mark R. McMinn, Ph.D., is professor of psychology at Wheaton College Graduate School in Wheaton, Illinois, where he directs and teaches in the Doctor of Psychology program. A diplomate in Clinical Psychology of the American Board of Professional Psychology, McMinn has thirteen years of postdoctoral experience in counseling, psychotherapy, and psychological testing. McMinn is the author of Making the Best of Stress: How Life's Hassles Can Form the Fruit of the Spirit; The Jekyll/Hyde Syndrome: Controlling Inner Conflict through Authentic Living; Cognitive Therapy Techniques in Christian Counseling; and Christians in the Crossfire (written with James D. Foster). He and his wife, Lisa, have three daughters.

Merle Jordan argues that many people spend their adult lives struggling to distinguish between the imperatives of divine authority and the deeply rooted psychological authority of family structures. Employing the wisdom of his experience as a pastoral psychologist as well as the insights of clinical researchers and therapists, Jordan offers ways to demythologize false absolutes and to refocus distorted maps of reality.

Sexuality Approaching Controversial Issues

$19.95

For more on Bruce's books go to brucebmiller.com

"Personally, it was refreshing and affirming to me to read that single people are honored, loved, even treasured, as much as married people in the church and why that is so. Bruce is correct in writing that most of us don't really know how to correctly handle our sexuality in a way that honors God and respects our own personhood as created in God's image. As for the emotionally charged issue of same-sex relationships and marriages, I commend Bruce for thoughtfully laying out both truth and grace to guide us as we navigate these relationships in our lives. I found the study guide and questions posed throughout the book to be so helpful and thought-provoking. This book is an excellent resource that can be used for individual study and as a group study for all ages."

"Bruce Miller has written a clear and practical guide for our sexual lives. This book is biblically rooted, informed by the experience of human brokenness, and provides wise counsel for being holy in this realm of our lives."

Dennis P. Hollinger, Ph.D.

Author of The Meaning of Sex: Christian Ethics and the Moral Life

Special note: This study is unique. Most studies on sexuality are designed for adolescents urging them to wait; or for men involved in pornography aimed at helping them stop; or for couples helping them improve their sex life. Instead, this study is aimed at all the people in a typical church small group. It's designed to be done with men, women, married and single, all together. The aim of the study is to grow in Christ by gaining a more robust and nuanced biblical understanding of sexuality.

Sale 20% off
Anyone in a helping profession--including professional counselors, spiritual directors, pastoral counselors, chaplains and others--needs to develop effective communication skills. But learning these skills is like learning a new language: it takes time and practice to communicate effectively, and lack of practice can lead to the loss of one's ability to use this new language. Suitable for both beginning students and seasoned practitioners, Skills for Effective Counseling provides a biblically integrated approach to foundational counseling skills that trains the reader to use specific microskills. These skills include perceiving, attending, validating emotion and empathic connection. Chapters include textbook features such as sample session dialogues, role plays and a variety of both in-class and out-of-class exercises and reflection activities that will engage various learning styles. Strategically interwoven throughout the chapters are special topics related to:
  • multicultural counseling
  • biblical/theological applications
  • current and seminal research related to microskills
  • diagnostic and theoretical implications
  • clinical tips for using skills in "real world" counseling settings
  • the relevance of specific microskills to interpersonal relationships and broader ministry settings
  • This textbook and the accompanying IVP Instructor Resources include all of the activities and assignments that an instructor might need to execute a graduate, undergraduate or lay course in foundational counseling skills. Professors teaching within CACREP-accredited professional counseling programs will be able to connect specific material in the textbook to the latest CACREP Standards.

    A revised and updated edition of the groundbreaking work that changed the way we think about and treat traumatic events and trauma victims.

    "A stunning achievement ... a classic for our generation." --Bessel van der Kolk, M.D., author of The Body Keeps the Score
    When Trauma and Recovery was first published in 1992, it was hailed as a groundbreaking work. In the intervening years, it has become the basic text for understanding trauma survivors. By placing individual experience in a broader political frame, Judith Herman argues that psychological trauma can be understood only in a social context. Drawing on her own research on incest, as well as on a vast literature on combat veterans and victims of political terror, she shows surprising parallels between private horrors like child abuse and public horrors like war. A new epilogue reviews what has changed--and what has not changed--over two decades. Trauma and Recovery is essential reading for anyone who seeks to understand how we heal and are healed.

    In The Trauma Model, Dr. Ross provides a detailed, scientifically testable method of mental illness. He defines the problem of comorbidity as the central conceptual problem in psychiatry at the beginning of the twenty-first century, then solves it using the logic and predictions of the trauma model. A person with extensive comorbidity suffers from many different psychiatric disorders at the same time including depression, substance abuse, anxiety and eating disorders, psychotic symptoms and personality disorders. Most individuals requiring inpatient psychiatric treatment fit the clinical profile of the trauma model. Dr. Ross also provides a detailed description of trauma therapy, which is suitable for a wide range of addictions, self-destructive behaviors and symptoms. General principles and specific techniques are described and illustrated with dialogue from composite case examples.
