Homework, Handouts, and Activities for Use in Christian Counseling

Why 'The Christian Therapist's Notebook'? Because, despite the plethora of theoretical and philosophical books about Christian counseling few answer the question, 'What do I do with the Client in the therapeutic session?'

This is an excellent source for innovative strategies connecting the everyday world of clients with Christian principles and Scripture. This creative, time-saving guide assists therapists in helping clients achieve therapy goals through professionally sound exercises while maintaining a positive, supportive connection with Christian beliefs.

Helpful features include Scripture references relevant to common problems, case studies, vignettes, professional resource lists, client resource lists, in-session exercises, homework exercises, and handouts. Each chapter of The Christian Therapist's Notebook focuses on a single exercise to address an important issue commonly seen in clinical practice. Chapters provide a guiding Scripture quote, an objective, rational for use, clear and specific instructions, suggestions for a follow-up, a vignette illustrating the exercise's success, contraindications, extensive resources, and related Scriptures.

Educational Objectives

Upon completion of this course, the clinician will be able to:

  • Have a better understanding of clients who value a Christian oriented approach
  • Know more Old and New Testament scripture relevant to specific therapeutic situations
  • Have an increased ability to integrate psychologically sound and effective spiritual (Christian) therapeutic strategies
