As a ready reference for the counselor this concise guide serves as a quick review of counseling techniques. It will aid in preparation before a counseling session; help locate a Scripture passage, gather data, or indicate the direction in which to move during the session; and give guidance in summarizing what happened, locating possible causes of failure, and planning the next session after the counseling has taken place.

The helps in this mini-manual first appeared as a supplement to the Christian Counselor's New Testament. They include:

  • Quick Check List
  • Some Don'ts in Counseling
  • Fifty Failure Factors
  • Suggested Counselor Reponses to Typical Counselee Remarks
  • Data Gathering
  • Question Asking
  • Listening
  • Homework
  • Counseling Outlines for Fifty Basic Problem Areas
  • Counselor's Topical Worklist with Select Scripture References (Sixty Topics)
  • The Christian Counselor's Quick Reference Chart to Ten Common Problems
