Lay Counseling Series involves a caring relationship in which one person seeks to help another deal more effectively with the stresses of life. I have put together twelve lay counseling subjects. This is the first book in the series: Can psychologists and Christian counselors integrate? People helping is taught in the scriptures. It is required of all believers, not just pastors, and it is urgently needed in all congregations, whatever their size, as people struggle with today's stress, confusion, and anxiety. Recognizing this need and the biblical mandate to meet it is the first step toward developing a congregation of people helpers.
