Synopsis

The gospel brings liberty to men, women, and children bound by every conceivable sin and affliction. Psychology provides a tool for applying the power of the gospel in practical ways. Drawing on biblical truths and psychological principles, Counseling in African-American Communities helps us—Christian counselors, pastors, and church leaders—to meet the deep needs of our communities with life-changing effect.

Marshaling the knowledge and experience of experts in the areas of addiction, family issues, mental health, and other critical issues, this no-nonsense handbook supplies distinctively African-American insights on the problems tearing lives and families apart all around us:

Domestic Abuse
Gambling Addiction
Blended Families
Sexual Addiction and the Internet
Depression and Bipolar Disorder
Divorce Recovery
Unemployment
Sexual Abuse and Incest
Demonology
Grief and Loss
Schizophrenia
Substance Abuse . . . and much more
