Article Abstract

Because this piece has no abstract, we have provided for your benefit the first 3 sentences of the full text.

In the span of one primary care office day, reality quickly teaches that many of our patients suffer from brokenness of heart and unfulfilled dreams, which adversely influence their health. When we efficiently address the presenting complaints and their physical manifestations, our patients are in no way freed from the root causes, such as past abuse, and their secondary issues, such as sexual dysfunction. I wondered if a text rooted in Christian counseling theory could serve primary care providers of all belief backgrounds who in their practices treat many needy, psychologically challenged patients.
