Yarhouse, M.A. & Sells, J.N. (2017). Experiential family therapy. In Family therapies: A comprehensive Christian appraisal. Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press.
Yarhouse and Sells (2008) give us food for thought regarding Christian responses to the various family therapy theories. This is assignment is meant to prompt your personal reflection regarding how secular approaches to helping families intersect with Christian traditions and teachings. Write a reflection on this week’s Yarhouse and Sells reading, specifically discussing your perspective on the ways this week’s family therapy theories intersect or contradict Christian beliefs/theology/teachings.
The material in Yarhouse and Sells differs from your alternate text in its description and explanation of theories. It is appropriate to note what you learned in this chapter that differs from your other text over the theories. Please cite the text and use graduate level grammar. (Note: The Bible is a proper noun and should be capitalized, as should the scriptures of other major religions. The term “biblical” is an adjective and does not require capitalization.)
