Todays rabbi, in addition to being the spiritual leader of his congregation, is also expected to be a competent counselor to the members of his community. Yet, rabbis often feel inadequately prepared for the difficult challenges of their counseling role.
To many, rabbinic counseling appears deceptively simple, requiring no more than good intuition, fair judgment, and simcere empathy. Good counseling, in reality, is a complex process requiring a combination of knowledge, skill, self-awareness, and an understading of human dynamics.
This groundbreaking book - written specifically for community rabbis and religious counselors - reflect the wisdom of seasoned progessionals, who provide clear guidelines and sensible strategies for effective rabbinic counseling.
