Publisher's Description

A Practical, Biblical, Step-by-step Guide for Christian Counseling.



In Telling the Truth to Troubled People, Dr. Backus integrates both biblical and psychological facts to show pastors, lay counselors and Christian psychologists how to help people overcome their problems. In easily understood writing style, Dr. Backus provides the reader with:--Background information on various psychological disorders, including a complete index for easy reference.--Evaluation and application of counseling techniques.--Explanation of clinical terminology.--Illustrations from case histories and dialogue samples for further amplification of the material. Review questions at the end of each chapter make this book an ideal group study for a lay counseling class.

Author Bio

Dr. William Backus is founder of the Center for Christian Psychological Services, and an ordained clergyman in the Lutheran church. He is also a licensed Consulting Psychologist. He has a master's degree in theology from Concordia Seminary in St. Louis and a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Minnesota.



Dr. Backus has conducted follow-up studies of his clients, which show a 95 percent improvement rate, compared to a 67 percent success rate for other methods of therapy. The difference, Dr. Backus says, is "the truth of God as revealed in the Word."



In addition, he serves as an assistant pastor on the staff of North Heights Lutheran Church, Roseville, Minnesota, where he has founded and directed a lay-staffed free counseling clinic. He and his wife live in Minnesota.
