OCD, ADHD, PTSD, bipolar disorder... These terms, which were once technical and represented medical diagnoses, are now part of our everyday vocabulary and culture. As Christians, we must not avoid these topics or underestimate the important issues they may raise. Furthermore, we must be careful not to automatically accept all secular psychiatric diagnoses and treatments. What we need is a balanced, biblically (and scientifically) sound approach that does not blindly accept and categorically reject psychiatric labels, diagnoses and medications prescribed to help those who are suffering.
As a biblical counselor and physician, Michael R. Emlet offers readers a Christ-centered approach to psychiatry and guides practitioners, both professional and lay, through the maze of mental health labels and treatments from a biblical perspective. In a clear and thoughtful way that puts the person facing mental health problems at the center of concern, the author shows how the Bible addresses the issue of psychiatric labels and the medications that are often recommended based on those labels. Descriptions and Prescriptions will give readers a biblical, gospel-based perspective to help them understand and minister to people with mental health issues.
