Healing for the City' is a book for counseling urban dwellers in need, whether they be inside or outside the church. It focuses on the brokenness and typical problems of urban dwellers without assuming that all who live in the city suffer from serious dysfunctions This book was written to offer guidance to those who counsel in an urban setting - to provide a response to the emotional, relational, and spiritual distress that one often encounters in the city. The three parts of the book treat the distinctive elements of the urban context, specific concerns of ethnic groups (Asian, Black, Hispanic), and approaches to particular pressing problems such as addictive behaviors, divorce, recovery, single parenting, sexual abuse, etc. 'Healing for the City' was written for pastors, social workers, counselors (professionals and paraprofessionals), and other Christians in positions of leadership and spiritual direction.
