This book is a Handbook designed to aid you in dealing with the most difficult issues of the heart. The Handbook is divided into two parts for the Christian counselor, or leader. The first section defines tools and principles for dealing with the most difficult of Issues. The second section sets for Need Oriented Behavior as a primary cause - effect for difficult destructive systems of behavior. Using a conservative Biblical foundation, Dr. Bob adds his expertise from his field of Psychology to provide an effective counseling model called "Christ-O-Therapy." Within this model you will be guided through "soul mapping" and the use of other tools, so as to discover the "cause and effect" of your own "issues." Understanding does not remove the problem, but it is frequently the first step along the journey to wholeness. The focus of Bob & Laura's work for the past 12 years has been in local church consultation and pastor's conferences. They help local churches navigate crisis situations through "Life Coaching" and "Intensives" (a 6-month program for local pastors dealing with Personal Growth, Ministry Skill Development, & Ministry Strategy Development). Consulting with a team of other professionals and leaders, they work in developing strategies, problem solving, leadership training, and counseling development. Most recently Bob & Laura have develop a six part, three level, training course for church counselors. These three seminars are being developed on "DVD" and VHS in 5 different languages for international distribution. These seminars are entitled "Issues of the Heart." These manuals were the topic of Bob's doctoral dissertation in Psychology. Bob holds a second masters and doctorate in Theology. Bob & Laura have three adult children, Rebekah, Rachael & Ben, and five grandchildren.
