Here’s what you can expect next week at Pastor Dave Online:
1. A Review of 8 Keys to Recovery from an Eating Disorder: Effective Strategies from Therapeutic Practice and Personal Experience by Carolyn Costin and Gwen Schubert Grabb
While not a Biblical counseling resource, this work has some of the most practical tools for assisting in the application of change for those struggling with an eating disorder. A MUST read for those counseling in such situations.
2. Salvation at the Margins: A Perfect Feast
Those who struggle with an eating disorder feel isolated, alone, and often hopeless. Food, the very source of nutrition and fuel they need has become a terror or a tyrannical master. There is hope for those at the margins as Jesus calls them to a true and perfect feast.
3. The Reformation Context (Part 3)
Continuing an exploration of the theological landscape of the pre-reformation world, next week we will turn our attention to another leading school of the late Medieval period.
4. Stability First: God’s Compassion for Victims of Trauma
The treatment of traumatic memories does not begin with processing the trauma itself, rather it begins with the establishment of some stability. God demonstrates a compassion for the symptoms of sufferers and good counselors need to follow His example.
