Reviews - What do our customers think?
Fabulous book!  Nov 30, 2009
Great practical advice for any clinician, lay person, or pastor. If you are human you will eventually have contact with someone in crisis. This is a great guide for anyone who simply wants to better care for someone going through a major event in their life. It will certainly enhance your practice - whether you are a novice or expert. Clear, concise, and practical (I know, I have already said practical, but really - it is!).
 
A must have!  Feb 11, 2009
Reviewed by Carol Hoyer, PhD, for Reader Views (2/09)

From his 25 years of pastoral experience, the author has written an easy to read and understand guide to help pastors and professionals prepare to do crisis counseling. With all the traumatic events that are happening in the world, pastors and counselors need to have additional tools to help their congregation or those they are caring for.

He skillfully describes different types of crisis, as well as crisis in the Bible. His chapter on grief is well defined and discusses how the grief process works. He stresses that grief is not easy to define, as it depends on the event and the individual. I particularly liked the way he addressed symptoms of crisis from loss of sleep to losing items to avoiding all past activities and friends.

Another chapter addressed views of God when trauma happens. We all believe God is loving and caring and would not want us to suffer. So, when something terrible happens we question why God would let this happen and often, we try to bargain with him.

His information on intervention strategies was very informative. One of the things that many of us were taught is to try not to talk about tragedy with the grieving individual. Dr. Floyd states that it is important for these individuals to address what their initial reaction was or what emotions they are feeling. This isn't a safe area- but it is one that needs to be addressed. The author relates that all individuals are affected by emotions and should be able to address emotions at their own pace as it is a step toward recovery.

In "Crisis Counseling: A Guide for Pastors and Professionals," Dr. Scott Floyd covers how to work with children, adolescents and at the end he provides a reference for the Biblical quotes.

 
Much Respect for the Author  Apr 29, 2008
Dr. Floyd presents a comprehensive look at interventions addressing critical incidents and traumatic events. He personalizes this book and approach based on the events that followed an evening at a Texas church when a gunman killed seven church attendees. He was among a few men selected by God to provide help in the grieving and treatment stages. I respect Dr. Floyd as a professor and now as an author. He lives what he writes about and what he teaches on in the SWBTS counseling program. I am proud to have been his student and to be his friend.
