I found the book, TRAUMA – DIE MEEDOЁNLOSE VYAND by Prof Wentzel Coetzer to be very informative. It gives one a basic understanding of trauma counselling and points one in a scriptural direction for helping those involved in a crisis. As far as the psychological aspects of trauma are concerned, it is well researched and comprehensive. I highly recommend this book for all those who are involved in the pastoral ministry. Many pastors and lay counsellors have had minimal training in clinical methods of trauma counselling. The book is a biblical, practical guide to trauma counselling written by one of the most respected Christian therapists in South Africa. Readers will learn how to counsel those who are in crisis, how to walk alongside them following their trauma and how to help them find the path to complete restoration. – Dr Noel B.
