Book Summary of Union With Christ by Rankin Wilbourne


Counseling children and teens is no easy task. Counseling children and teens in a way that glorifies God and effects change through biblical principles is an even harder task. Counselors need to develop sophisticated techniques and strategies in order to understand children and teens and imbue their young minds with the wisdom of God and Christ.

Children are not always so easy to get talking. They are often quiet, reserved, resentful, or private, and many — even the more talkative and forthcoming ones — often struggle to articulate their thoughts and emotions. How can we draw out into the open the interior lives of children and teens?

There are a variety of methods a counselor can use to help their child or teen become more expressive so that the counselor can in turn properly diagnose any issues and discern which aspects of Scripture and faith are the most urgent and necessary for their counselee to embrace. Many of these methods are creative or artistic: 

  • Storytelling
  • Writing
  • Puppet play
  • Sandbox play
  • Painting
  • Music
  • The creative use of technology.

No matter which method a counselor employs for any given child, a counselor must be understanding, spontaneous, adaptable, thoughtful, patient, God-focused, and committed to becoming an expert on their child or teen.
