Narrative Pastoral Counseling


The unique contribution of this book is the practical approach to counseling through the use of the stories of counselees. It integrates the revolutionary techniques developed by pioneers in the field of narrative therapy and solution-focused counseling with a Christian perspective on counseling. The conversational style of writing helps the reader understand both the theory and practice of narrative counseling. The stories in the book paint word pictures of the process and effects of story-telling, story-listening, and storycreation in counseling. Special attention is given to the art of asking good, timely questions while hosting the stories of counselees in a manner that expands the bits and pieces and helps create hope for the future. Grief issues, faith conversations, and the importance of integrity in counseling are also addressed in this book.
