Counseling Women by professor and counselor Kristin Kellen offers an up-to-date, biblically-informed resource specifically geared toward common struggles that women face. Chapters survey issues such as depression, anxiety, infertility, trauma and abuse, disordered eating, and much more, each one providing a general overview of the problem, a summary of how the Bible speaks to it, and a robust, holistic approach to counseling the individual experiencing it.
Kellen also outlines theological foundations for counseling, specifically the Bible’s teaching on human persons, the role of sin and suffering, and the place of Scripture to speak to life’s struggles. The practices of mainstream therapy are filtered through Scripture’s teachings to provide a wise and balanced approach. Accessible and deeply practical, Counseling Women will be useful both for counselors in various settings and for students in training programs.
