International Perspectives on Pastoral Counseling by Richard L. Dayringer
Book DescriptionGain fresh perspectives on pastoral care and counseling from international experts! This informative book will show you how pastoral care and counseling are viewed and practiced in Africa, India, Korea, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Central America, South America, Germany, and the United Kingdom. You'll find new perspectives on theoretical and practical aspects of pastoral care and counseling as well as fascinating case studies and unique insights on how culture affects this type of ministry. In his Preface, Dr. Howard Clinebell, Professor Emeritus of Pastoral Psychology and Counseling at the Claremont School of Theology, explains the need for this book: "In the radically new world of the 21st century, pastoral counselors of all races and ethnic backgrounds will be challenged by a growing need to provide competent help to burdened individuals, couples, families, and communities of different cultural backgrounds and worldviews than their own." International Perspectives on Pastoral Counseling gives you an intimate view of: * counseling models from the United States that are being adapted to the realities of urban Korean life * pastoral care and counseling in African and multicultural contexts * counseling issues arising from urban realities in Pretoria, South Africa * the state of pastoral counseling and the impact of globalization and international markets on pastoral theology in Brazil * care and counseling models from Holland and the United States that are being imported for use in Indonesia * how the realities of life in Singapore relate to pastoral care and therapeutic conversations * the needs of women and the historical development and meaning of pastoral care and counseling in the Philippines * the meaning of forgiveness--from an intercultural perspective * spiritual, philosophical, and other perspectives on Chinese cultures * the pitfalls of individualistic models of pastoral care and counseling in poverty-stricken regions of Latin America * the unique challenges of delivering care and counseling in Asian-Pacific cultures
