We all know of families or marriages in crisis. When those suffering in such situations turn to us for help, where do we turn? The Quick-Reference Guide to Marriage and Family Counseling provides the answers.

It is an A-Z guide for assisting people-helpers–pastors, professional counselors, youth workers, and everyday believers–to easily access a full array of information to aid them in (formal and informal) counseling situations. Issues addressed by Clinton and Trent include affairs and adultery, communication in marriage, parenting, sibling rivalry, and many more. Each of the forty topics covered follows a helpful eight-part outline and identifies:

  1. typical symptoms and patterns
  2. definitions and key thoughts
  3. questions to ask
  4. directions for the conversation
  5. action steps
  6. biblical insights
  7. prayer starters
  8. recommended resources

“As any counselor knows, people often come to us with their lives in chaos. This tool provides a clear structure and a path out of the confusion, in order to help those who are hurting to make sense of their situation, their emotions, and their faith.” – John Townsend, Ph.D., Clinical Director, American Association of Christian Counselors

We hope God uses this book in your ministry to reach out and touch the lives of hurting people.
