Combining cutting-edge expertise with deeply rooted Christian insights, this text from a leading figure in the Christian counseling community offers readers a comprehensive survey of ten major counseling and psychotherapy approaches. For each approach, Siang-Yang Tan first provides a substantial introduction, assessing the approach's effectiveness and the latest research findings or empirical evidence for it. He then critiques the approach from a Christian perspective. Tan also includes hypothetical transcripts of interventions for each major approach to help readers get a better sense of the clinical work involved. This book presents a Christian approach to counseling and psychotherapy that is Christ centered, biblically based, and Spirit filled.

From the Back Cover:

"Encyclopedic in scope, Counseling and Psychotherapy provides a comprehensive survey of the major approaches in psychological treatment. The book presents up-to-date discussions of treatment effectiveness and is filled with examples of clinical interaction that bring the theories to life. However, its most outstanding feature is the commentary and critique of each model from a Christian perspective. Professor Tan has written a lucid and incisive text that advances the field of Christian psychology."--Edward P. Shafranske, Pepperdine University

"Long one of clinical psychology's most distinguished Christian commentators, Dr. Tan has produced a coherent and ambitious text on the theory and practice of psychotherapy and counseling by Christians. I hope this text will be widely used and generate serious reflection by students at all levels of preparation."--Stanton L. Jones, Wheaton College

"The complexity of theories and models of psychotherapy can seem overwhelming. Dr. Tan offers this comprehensive and finely tuned perspective of ten major schools of psychotherapy, critiquing their theological fit and offering a carefully considered Christian perspective. This book will fill a need in undergraduate and graduate programs in counseling as well as in seminary-based pastoral counseling programs."--Archibald D. Hart, Fuller Theological Seminary

"A monumental achievement that only Siang-Yang Tan could pull off. It offers a rare blend of comprehensive psychological research, fair and balanced critique of the classic models of psychotherapy, sound biblical perspective, and practical application."--Gary W. Moon, Richmont Graduate University

"Counseling and Psychotherapy has the potential to become a landmark book. Siang-Yang's latest work is 'typical Tan': vastly comprehensive, impressively researched, accessibly written, biblically controlled, God-honoring, and spiritually sensitive. I don't know a better introductory text for aspiring Christian counselors and therapists or a more mature overview text for provoking solid Christian thinking about counseling and psychotherapy."--Larry Crabb, author, 66 Love Letters; founder and director, NewWay Ministries

"Tan has written a readable text, hugely informative to both students and professionals. It displays encyclopedic knowledge of major theories, is the most complete summary and Christian-oriented analysis of theories of counseling and psychotherapy existing, and (unlike most theories of psychotherapy) provides ample attention to both cases and technical methods of counseling. Tan's own reflections on integrated Christian, biblically oriented, Holy Spirit-led counseling are alone worth the price of the book."--Everett L. Worthington Jr., author, Hope-Focused Marriage Counseling and Forgiving and Reconciling
