    The Purpose of this study was on the Christian Counseling for anger control and treatment of adolescence. Anger is a very commonly experienced and displayed emotion during adolescence. therefore, An understand and control of anger, including the adolescence counselor’s own anger, is basis for effective Christian Counseling. In the Old Testament alone there are almost six hundred references to wrath or anger, and this theme continues in the New Testament. Several Bible passages imply that control is possible and indicate how this can be done. There are many reasons anger invades adolescence’s lives. Anger is triggered by a vast array of emotions and events. Some of the more prominent and significant are frustration, alienation, perfectionism, hurt or threat of hurt,injustice, fear, or anger as a learned response. Helping an adolescent or preadolescent who is struggling with anger may be a difficult and lengthy task. However, it is possible to do so, particularly if the following guidelines are kept in mind: help counselees admit anger, help counselees consider the sources of anger, clarify biblical thinking, help counselees express anger, confession and forgiveness, growing spiritually in Jesus Christ. As this thesis has shown, the Bible and psychology can combine to increase out understanding of anger and can help counselors to be more effective in working with adolescence who struggle with anger and self-control.

It was known that, from the viewpoint of Christian counselling, home is the stage of basic education and that the roles of homes are important as theological communities, social communities and communities for binding. From a biblical viewpoint, the characteristics of adolescents and the roles of parents in relation to the characteristics could be also known. In this regard, it was also known that, since adolescents are insensitive to the problems of minds, parents should bring up their children focusing on changes in their children’s minds. As strategies for education of adolescent children in terms of Christian counseling, I proposed to first, bring up children with plans,second, continuously talk with children and third, lead teenagers to repentance.

    Abstract PDF
    In Postmodern society, there is no way of escaping from facing problems and crises and suffering as a result. Crisis and trouble causes us to feel the feeling of desertedness, anger, frustration and loneliness. It also lead us to doubt about the love of God, anger to God and shake our identity. However, through suffering if we recognize our limitation as creature, and seek God’s involvement in our life,we can assure the love of God for us through redemptive work (incarnation,suffering, death and resurrection) of Jesus. Also, we certainly can experience the presence of God with us in the middle of deserted feeling of the absence of God and therefore we can recover the intimacy with God. In this perspective suffering as a testing period of our identity as a believer, suffering can give us the meaning and value of our life, and it enables us to possess new and wider perspective and attitude to life and other human beings and to our living God.

    Relationality of Women: A Pastoral Theological Understanding of Wives' Loyalty to the Family Regardless of Husbands' Infidelity

    Ha, Jae Sung | 2010, 14() | pp.262~282 | number of Cited : 5
    Abstract PDF
    Why do many women in Korea with a problem of husbands’infidelity insist to stay with them regardless of the painful experience of brokenness in relationship?Pastoral theologians allegedly claim that relationality illumines women’s distinctive tendency toward mutual dependency as part of their development and maturation. On the one hand, relationality makes women provide care for family. It overburdens them by essentializing their motherly care on the other. Husbands who are unfaithful to their wives tend to abuse power over women in order to keep them loyal to the family regardless of their infidelity. Women’s relationality can be manipulated when faithless husbands depend on the cultural bias against women whose presence in the family they regard as essential. Pastoral theologians have closely paid attention to women’s sufferings by analyzing power dynamics at the socio-cultural level. By rejecting patriarchal approval of men’s infidelity, they try to encourage women to recover the language of the self. For this purspose, pastoral counselors for women must primarily understand women’s life in their relational environments. Pastoral theology distinguishes itself from typical tips for a simple solution. The pastoral counselor must empathize the betrayed wives by helping them break the silence and crack down the unconscious homeostatic belief that women are always responsible for their husbands’ infidelity.

The program to improve relationship between mother-in-law and daughterin-law of a multicultural family consists of five sessions and is organized in such a way to solve psychological problems and day-to-day difficulties centering around marriage migrant women and their mothers-in-law. The program focuses on comprehending the Korean family hierarchy, identifying the causes of conflicts between mother-in-law and daughter-in-law typically stemming from cultural differences and lack of understanding, emphasizing the division of roles between mother-in-law and daughter-in-law, and restoring the relationship between them as directed by God. Naomi, motherin-law, and Ruth, alien daughter-in-law, in the book of Ruth exemplify the relationship transcending different cultures among races and nations. According to the biblical principles based on this kind of relationship, the program places a focus on helping those mothers-in-law and daughters-in-law respect each other without bias and lead a full life as Christians.
