Over recent decades CWR's Waverley model of Christian counselling, pioneered by the late Selwyn Hughes, has influenced the clinical practice of thousands of people around the world. These counsellors have, in turn, influenced many more people. Those who are interested in pastoral care with local churches, rather than professional counselling, have also benefited from the insights and skills they have gained in CWR's introductory counselling courses.
Written particularly for counsellors in training, but also providing an invaluable background to the Waverley model for those who are involved in pastoral care courses conducted by CWR, this book by Ron Kallmier, CWR tutor and until recently its Director of Training, gives a broad-based introduction to the model, with emphasis on the strongly biblical perspective it brings to counselling and caring, and aims to also be understandable to those following a different theoretical or practical approach. An ideal resource for those wanting to gain a foundational understanding of this respected teaching, as well as for CWR students.
