PPT: MISSIONAL THERAPY — A Hermeneutic of Care for Christian Counselors

Imagine a hermeneutical approach that privileges the missio Dei as the key to interpreting our experiences of anxiety and conflict?

I will be presenting this idea at the International Association for the Study of Youth Ministry Conference in Sydney come January 5, 2017. The presentation invites Christian counselors to engage in a missional therapy that interprets experiences of identity crisis and unhealthy thought patterns by drawing insights rooted in missional convictions and Christian hope. On this account, a missional therapist would be one who is equipped to reframe stories of identity crisis into A PORTRAIT OF HOPE AND PROMISE, hence collapsing  the vast space between our story and God’s story.
