Dan Zink

| Lexham Press | 2018


In Introducing Christian Counseling: A Worldview Approach (CO105) Dan Zink exposes learners to the foundations and features of Christian counseling, surveying the big ideas of people, problems, change, and help. Dr. Zink addresses questions like, What is the purpose of the gospel? How do thinking and feeling relate to one another and what implications does this have for counseling? What role do emotions play in a well-balanced life? Why is empathy so important and how do we grow in it? and, When is it appropriate for a counselor to break confidentiality?
