What Does a Good First Session Look Like?

Journal of Biblical Counseling 28:1

Lauren Whitman provides us with helpful guidance on how to conduct that often-challenging first counseling session. Newer counselors will be eager to have a tool to help them approach these initial conversations with people they don’t know. But even veterans will benefit from a review of things to keep in mind as they meet with those they counsel for the first time. Read this and find a new way (or two!) to bless those who come to you for help.
