Counseling Women: A Narrative, Pastoral Approach

Counseling Women: A Narrative, Pastoral Approach

In this signal volume, Christie Neuger offers a new feminist paradigm for radical, effective, empowering counseling for women. She contends that pastors must take up the challenge of pastoral counseling, especially in light of the revolutionary pastoral implications of gender studies and feminist theology, as well as the continuing personal and social effects of sexism.
Neuger's work promises to aid counselors "to help women resist and transform the negative effects of a woman-unfriendly culture" and so to reclaim their stories, their strength, and their lives.

"Christie Neuger gives us a breathtaking and prophetic view of the often invisable social, cultural, and systemic forces that affect women's life stories. Counseling Women offers a much-needed narrative approach to pastoral care and brief counseling that is grounded in the feminist theological commitments of empowerment, justice, grace, and interdependency. An important contribution!"
— Pamela Cooper-White, author of The Cry of Tamar

"Offering a new feminist paradigm for radical, effective, and empowering counseling for women, Neuger contends that pastors must take up the challenge of pastoral counseling. She sees this especially needed in light of the revolutionary pastoral implications of gender studies and feminist theology, and the continuing personal and social effects of sexism. Her hope is to help counselors aid women in resisting and transforming the negative effects of a woman-unfriendly culture, reclaiming their stories and lives."
