About the Author
Howard W. Stone is professor emeritus of psychology and pastoral counseling at Brite Divinity School, Texas Christian University. He is the author of many influential books, including Depression and Hope, and editor of Strategies for Brief Pastoral Counseling.
"Radically updated and highly relevant to contemporary crisis situations, Crisis Counseling takes a focused approach by offering carefully conceived models and strategies for ordinary and extreme crises with lots of illustrations and case examples. At the same time, it takes a sweeping approach to this ministry of the church, discussing both lay and clergy roles, congregational support programs, and community resources for helping those in crisis." --Christie Cozad Neuger, Emerita Professor of Pastoral Theology and Pastoral Counseling, Brite Divinity School, Texas Christian University
"Howard Stone describes this expanded and revised edition as a 'vital lifeline' to comfort, restoration, and hope in situational and developmental crises. I would boldly call this classic a 'lifesaver.' Stone's adaptation of the A-B-C method of crisis intervention, applicable to both clergy and laity, has been used to save a life. I am witness. This book you must afford!" --Jeanne Stevenson-Moessner, Professor of Pastoral Care and Pastoral Theology at Perkins School of Theology, SMU
