Reviews - What do our customers think?
Hope-Focused Marriage Counseling - A home run  Mar 15, 2007
A refreshingly different approach to marriage counseling that focuses upon restoring hope in the marriage rather than tackling problems. Excellent examples of interventions based upon what Worthington identifies as the nine areas of marriage. Easy to understand and even more easy to use. Outstanding work!
 
Hope for Hurting Marriages, Help for Marital Counselors  May 25, 2005
I'm very selective about the texts that I require in my seminary counseling classes. "Hope-Focused Marriage Counseling" easily "makes the cut." By far, it is the best text that I've found for equipping Christian counselors for marital therapy.

Author Everett Worthington combines years of research, education experience, and biblical insight to offer a text that teaches counselors how to help couples rediscover hope. The writing is clear, the exercises helpful, and the bibliography excellent.

Reviewer: Dr. Robert W. Kellemen is the author of "Soul Physicians: A Theology of Soul Care and Spiritual Direction," "Spiritual Friends: A Methodology of Soul Care and Spiritual Direction," and the forthcoming "Sacred Companions: A History of Soul Care and Spiritual Direction."
 
A clear guide....  Jul 20, 2001
This was a required text for a counseling class I'm taking. I find this book to be very informative and interesting. Although this book is geared toward Christian counsleors, it is also applicable to non-Christians - or if you're just looking for ways to improve your marriage. This book is not written at all like a textbook. It's very straight-forward and easy to read. Very little technical language is used, and even that is clearly explained.

I believe that this book is very, very good. It's giving me a clearer idea of how to counsel and what a counselor's main objectives are. I recommend this book to anybody interested in counseling, and even those who are already professional counselors. This book is applicable to Christians and non-Christians alike.
