Pastoral counselling has had a significant role in the development of the wider British counselling movement over the past thirty years. Yet this role has often gone unacknowledged, and little has been written about the implications of its distinctive identity within counselling.

Clinical Counselling in Pastoral Settings fills this gap by offering an exploration of clinical issues that are distinctive to the work of pastoral counsellors in a way that is made clearly relevant to practice, whilst exploring wider issues.

Contents include:

* Pastoral counselling in multi-cultural settings

* Pastoral counselling and the therapeutic frame

* Transference within the pastoral counselling relationship

* Integrated theology and psychology in pastoral counselling

* The promise and difficulties of pastoral counselling
