Sources of Gain in Christian Counseling and Psychotherapy.
Johnson, W. Brad; Ridley, Charles R.
Counseling Psychologist, v20 n1 p159-75 Jan 1992
Examines four major assumptions about change (accommodation, hope, truth, divine agent) which undergird Christian counseling. Discusses assumptions' application for therapy and research. Argues lack of careful assumptive reflection among theorists of Christian therapy leads to numerous pragmatic and scientific difficulties, including dearth of credible treatment investigations.
