* What should you say---and not say---when you minister to people who've experienced hardship and loss? How can you lead them on the road to healing? In this practical, biblical guide, Wright explores the stages of grief; shares real-life dialogues from his own practice; and offers compassionate responses to help you guide counselees toward restoration. 224 pages, hardcover from Baker.
Many pastors and lay counselors have had minimal training in clinical methods of grief counseling. Helping Those in Grief is a biblical, practical guide to pastoral counseling written by one of the most respected Christian therapists of our time. This book is the next step after Wright's bestselling The New Guide to Crisis and Trauma Counseling. Wright brings more than forty years of clinical and classroom experience to this topic and shares real-life dialogues to demonstrate healthy, healing counseling sessions. Readers will learn how to counsel and coach both believers and nonbelievers who are grieving, how to walk alongside them, and how to help them find the path to complete restoration.
