About this product
- DescriptionImportant questions face any pastoral counselor when working with African American couples and families. Edward Wimberly focuses on the religious worldview that African Americans bring to their understanding of marriage and family, so that the counselor can learn the assumptions behind the presenting problems. Wimberly's treatment examines the social context of African American families, the separate issues for men and women, intergenerational factors, the impact of the life cycle, sexuality, affairs, and abuse. This wide-ranging book is exceptionally practical for all pastoral caregivers. The purpose of the Counseling and Pastoral Theology series is to address clinical issues that arise among particular populations currently neglected in the literature on pastoral care and counseling. This series is committed to enhancing both the theoretical base and the clinical expertise of pastoral caregivers by providing a pastoral theological paradigm that will inform both assessment and intervention with persons in these specific populations.
- Author BiographyEdward P. Wimberly is Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost at the Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta, Georgia, where he also teaches courses on pastoral care and counseling. His publications include Winds of Promise: Building and Maintaining Strong Clergy Families (co-authored with Anne Wimberly) and African American Pastoral Care: The Politics of Oppression and Empowerment.
