A comprehensive handbook covering the major issues a counselor, chaplain or psychotherapist might meet in the counseling room.

Counseling Issues is a practical handbook based on sound psychological principles. It provides a wealth of ideas for counseling and for structuring a series of counseling sessions. It is particularly accessible to the inexperienced counselor or psychotherapist who is looking for guidance on a particular topic without having to read a whole book on the subject, or read something more technical.

Basic emotional issues such as anger, shame, anxiety, stress, grief, depression, anxiety disorders, suicide risk—and behavioural issues like addiction, phobias and compulsive behaviours such as self-harm and obsessive compulsive disorder are addressed. There are chapters on relationship issues such as divorce, abuse of various kinds, dysfunctional relationships, personality disorders, adoption, blended families, and strategies for couple counseling.

A biblical viewpoint is added at the end of each chapter for the Christian counselor and pastor. There is an extensive list of about 500 references along with Internet references, providing a rich resource for further reading.
