Item Description...
Overview
Pastoral Care and Counseling has changed radically since the publication of the Dictionary of Pastoral Care and Counseling. Rapid changes have occurred in theological, social, and medical contexts broadening the understanding of care. The shift from the "living human document" to the "living human web" both enriches and challenges the study and practice of pastoral theology. Bringing the field current, this Expanded Edition offers authoritative, easy-to-find information that will assist anyone engaged in the study or practice of pastoral care and counseling. Now more than 1200 state-of-the art articles, prepared by experts in the field, cover virtually every topic related to pastoral care and counseling. The volume is ecumenical in its vision, enlisting the participation of nearly 600 Protestant, Catholic, Orthodox, and Jewish contributors. This volume is easy to use. Concise articles are arranged in alphabetical order, knit together through an extensive cross-referencing system. These cross-references, together with bibliographies and dummy headings, enable the reader to find information quickly, see the interrelation of topics, and identify additional sources of information and insight. The Dictionary of Pastoral Care and Counseling, Expanded Edition also includes longer, more detailed articles and essays. By offering critical perspectives and creative insights, these articles contain abundant resources for the assessment and future development of contemporary practice. Thus the volumje is also an encyclopedic reference that will aid research and teaching, as well as providing insights into the future development of pastoral care and counseling. CDROM included with this Volume! The Dictionary of Pastoral Care and Counseling Expanded Edition also contains the entire volume on CD-ROM searchable in the Folio(R) Search format. Folio(R) provides rapid, offline text searching across large volumes of mission-critical reference information. Folio(R) enables users to enhance the value of content by adding rich markup, including structure, commentary and different types of links. Users can further adapt the content to their specific needs with easy-to-use annotative features such as notes, highlighters and saved searches. Folio(R) users know these features define the difference between merely accessing information and really putting it to work to create an information advantage.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great book and very informative in the context of pastoral care.  Mar 1, 2007
The author gave some great historiography infromation concerning various religious sects as to how pastoral care emerges from each group. The book was not to finite with detail, but it was precise and breif enough to encompass a broad perspective. The CD that comes along with the book was just as useful to use as the book itself.
 
Soul and Psyche  Dec 21, 2004
Anyone who has worked in the area where psychology and religion interface will appreciate this solid, thorough and carefully edited work that is without par in the field. Grounded in the actual experience of the "theology of living documents", the articles are as much practical as theoretical and academic. Thoroughly ecumenical, this massive reference work promotes dialogue between faith and theology and clinical theory and practice. If this is the kind of subject that interests you then you need to own this book.

Too Much of a Good Thing?  Sep 4, 2001
This a comprehensive and well-written reference work with more than 1200 articles and 1346 pages. For the parish minister or pastor who needs guidance, this book should definitely be on the shelf as a mandatory reference work. For seminarians, it might be overwhelming, but would be a wonderful book to own. For more experienced religious leaders, pastoral counselors and pastoral psychotherapists, however, there is much here that can be gotten more easily and in more sophisticated form from smaller, more specialized books on theology and especially aspects of psychology/psychiatry. Still, it is an admirable piece of scholarship and one that most caregivers will want and use. (Non-religious mental health workers could also use it for working more effectively with religious populations.)
 
Thoughtful and useful dictionary  Apr 12, 2000
The Dictionary is useful for readers across a wide spectrum, not only for pastoral carers. Contains concise and practical information. The theological import of each entry is spelled out. Each entry has a bibliography for further reading or cross reference. I found myself browsing at leisure!
