Product Description

Coach those in need to access their own spiritual and personal resources, invoking both God’s help and their deep inner wisdom.

If you’re a minister, you’ve heard it all. People turn to you for help with every conceivable problem and expect you to help them “fix” it. You do your best, but you are more than open to learning new ways to coach and counsel. Denise Massey offers practical guidance for these pastoral conversations using the word “caring” as an acronym to make her six-step process easy to remember:

C:  Connect to God, self, and others.
A:  Attend to the person’s journey and assess the type of help that is needed.
R:  Reach agreement about the focus and goal for this conversation.
I:    Invite help from God, the person’s higher self, and other people.
N:  Notice, release, and navigate around resistance or obstacles.
G:  Generate a loving, specific action plan to reach the goal.

This important resource helps pastoral caregivers coach people on how to access their own spirituality, invoking both God’s help and the person’s own deep inner wisdom, creating an effective way for caregiver and care seeker to explore these six transformative steps together.
