An integral and important work for every rabbi and community leader. This book puts the essential elements of rabbinic counseling into the hands of those who need it most. Rabbis and leaders often find themselves doing formal and informal counseling--but with little or no experience, opportunities can be lost and damage can be done. Here are practical tools to facilitate better communication and assistance, user-friendly and eminently practical. Dr. Levitz is a clinical psychologist, former pulpit rabbi, and Professor Emeritus of Yeshiva University's Wurzweiler School of Social Work. Rabbi Dr. Twerski is a noted psychiatrist and former pulpit rabbi who has published close to fifty self-help books and specializes in addictions and rehabilitation. This book will be of interest and of essence to every rabbi, rebbe, and spiritual or community leader.
