Enrichment - Summer 2010: From Hurt to Healing: Pastoral Care and Counseling (Part 1)
Item # 75TW1087
With today’s complex human needs, demands for attentive care — whether physical, spiritual, social,
or emotional, present unique opportunities for churches. By combining forces, clergy, pastoral
counselors, and treatment professionals can address many of the most critical problems facing people
today. Premarital preparation, marital problems, parent-child relations, anxiety, guilt, depression,
sexual problems, various addictions, and matters of faith top the list of presenting concerns.
Despite an increasing number of mental health delivery systems, most people still look to their
pastor as the first source of counseling and soul care.
To assist pastors and those responsible for pastoral care and counseling, the next two issues of
Enrichment journal are devoted entirely to helping equip caring professionals bring health and
wholeness to individuals and families.
