It is the purpose of the author to point out the theories and techniques from the secular fields of counseling and psychotherapy which seem to be pertinent to pastoral care. The author feels that psychological counseling has already reached a point where the ministry can no longer afford to ignore it. This paper, then, is an attempt to sustematize some of the better thinking which has been done in the field. It is the author’s hope that he may make some small contribution to the field of practical theology by passing on the results of his own investigation in this field.
