Book Review: Solution-Focused Pastoral Counseling by Charles Allen Kollar
...
In meantime, Kollar offers wide-ranging insights that church counselors should find helpful regardless of approach.Kollar is right, for example, in being concerned about the "rent seeking"1 nature of the secular mental health industry, where economic incentives favor the need for more and more mental health services rather than the health of clients.So he is right in being cautious about referring Christians into that industry- an industry concerned, not with the healing of the biblical mind, but with the "healing" of the secular mind- a mind so intrinsically unsound from a biblical perspective that it's restoration to "soundness" is inherently problematic- hence the fundamental awkwardness of referring Christians to secular counselors where definitions of failure and success often run counter to Christian values.2
Kollar is right in suggesting that complex problems don't necessarily require complex solutions.He is right in challenging the scientific basis for the "disease" categories listed in the APA's DSM -4.3 He is right in insisting on the profound implications of approaching counseling from the standpoint of solutions rather than problems.And he is right on letting the outcome (health) dictate the process (solution-oriented).
For Kollar, the "deficiency language" of problem-centered approaches is the root of all evil.
