Presents case study of a classic “psychologized” person, a young woman caught up in the literature and therapies of the Recovery Movement. Counselors need to do a number of things to effectively help such people. Don’t underestimate the hold of their current beliefs. Remember you are counseling a person, not critiquing a book. Don’t give her what she’s already tried. Care for her in ways that communicate, and get to know her and her world. Build slowly. Reinterpret her experience and world biblically.
