God is irrelevant! One would think so when combing counseling methodology, literature of psychology, and mental health procedures. Not only is God and the devil omitted, but there are no references to the spirit world. A look at the DSM (Diagnostic & Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders often referred to as the psychiatrist's bible) reveals the spirit world has been afforded no mention as far as diagnosis or treatment. But how could it, as the counseling and mental health disciplines are patterned after the disease model practiced by the medical profession. This is where medical science has concluded the spirit world has no place, no validity when dealing with health issues. Demons cannot be introduced or factored into any psychological diagnosis as playing a part in a person's behavior, and God and the Bible certainly cannot be seen to have a part in the treatment one might receive and need.
"Putting God Back Into Counseling" is a book that does just that. Where God and the spirit world have been largely marginalized or eradicated by enlightened humanists: where CRT (Critical Race Theory) has displaced common sense, and relativism supersedes the truth found in the Word of God. "Putting God Back Into Counseling" focuses on bringing God back into what should be His rightful place in the counseling, psychology, and mental health fields. Today, God's people are hurting, churches are struggling, the devil is smiling, and the need for Biblical counseling has never been greater. In this book, the author is convinced that relegating all maladies or perceived mental health illnesses to an either/or, physical or mental causation is at best incomplete. The third part of our being, along with our body and soul, is our spirit, and it is this spirit realm that needs to be re-introduced to a lost, misinformed, and frightened people. Practical Soul Care Counseling does just that. PSCC also introduces the many organic/physical anomalies that are currently being misdiagnosed and treated by many psychiatrists, psychologists, and therapists as mental illnesses when in fact they should be recognized and treated as medical conditions. Here are a few: mold toxicities, TBI's (traumatic brain injuries), POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome), Lyme disease, and Fibromyalgia. These medical disorders are too often treated as being disorders of anxiety or depression rather than organic.
If you love people, if you hate the devil, and if you're tired of seeing Christians fall short of the victory God has for them, then "Putting God Back into Counseling" is a must read.
