Publisher's Description

This groundbreaking book, now updated and expanded, furthers its original, effective, time-saving approach that benefits pastors overtaxed by counseling demands. Dr. Charles Kollar presents a departure in pastoral counseling, showing that counseling need not be long-term or depend on psychological manipulation to produce dramatic results. In most cases, the solution lies with the counselees themselves. Using the tested methods found in Solution-Focused Pastoral Counseling, pastors, apart from counselors, will be well equipped to help their counselees discover a solution and put it in motion speedily and productively. SFPC is short-term—typically one to five sessions, in which the counselor seeks to create solutions with—not for—the counselee. The focus is on the possibility of life without the problem through an understanding of what is different when the problem does not occur or is less intrusive. The goal is healthy change, sooner rather than later, by helping the counselee see and work on the solution with God’s activity already present in his or her life. The solution-focused approach does not require the counselor to be a highly trained psychological expert. It requires biblically based sensitivity and common sense. Yet this approach also recognizes its limitations and understands that there are situations in which other professional and/or medical help is required.

    [This is a review of the contents of the book rather than of the e-book format which I have not used.] Dr Kollar presents his version of solution focused therapy from a pastoral perspective. This book is an easy, interesting read full of practical illustrations and suggestions. Solution focused therapy is a brief strengths-based approach that helps counselees find answers or solutions to their problems. If a pastor had to choose only one theoretical approach this might very well be the best in terms of effectiveness, adaptability, broad applicability, and ease of use.
