Pastoral Counselling Using Social Psychology
Verbal and Non Verbal Communication in Counselling
Today many pastoral counselling orientations exist.A unique individual conceives each and no two individuals are the same.This individual lives in a particular cultural setting.
He has had a long and wide experience of reading and observation as well as hours of painstaking practice,and reflection.The way each person portrays his own approach is unique to him.
It shows how he views human nature.
It indicates his own understanding of what makes an individual.However it is good to note that counsellors are born and trained and can also be both.One may have a lot of goodwill but not have the necessary skills or tools to deal with the job concerned.
It follows therefore that a counsellor does not indeed have to adhere to a particular counselling viewpoint in order to be adept at helping people solve their problems.No theory can be adequately understood without some knowledge of the cultural and personal soil from which it springs.In counselling you need to be patient and non judgemental.
This book tries to help you to be a better guidance and counselling person in your area and wherever you are.The book is good to all counsellors,clergy,religious and mentors in colleges and outside.
