    An Analysis of the Adlerian Psychology’s Life Style and Its Christian Appraisal

    Kim, Jun Soo | 2016, 24(1) | pp.73~99 | number of Cited : 3
    Abstract PDF
    This article focuses on in depth analysis and evaluation of the Adlerian psychology’s life style from the christian counseling perspective. The term life style refers to a person’s basic orientation toward life. It is more or less equivalent to terms such as personality, world-view and core belief. The life style is powered by the search for significance and the social concern. The search for significance occurs when a person experience the inferiority feelings and then engages in various attempts to compensate. Social concern is tone of the basic premises of the Adlerian approach. We are primarily social beings and that their behaviors can be understood only in terms of a social context. So each human being is born with the capacity to develop social interest. There is more compatibility between Christianity and Adlerian concepts than with most of the other systems of psychotherapy. There is an parallel between the Adlerian drives of superiority and social interest and the dominion and relational motives in the Christian creation story. However, the idea of God, as a mere projection of our psyches, is far from the biblical understanding revealed in the Scripture. We, also, need to understand the biblical world-view which is the objective guideline of our subjective world-view.

    Jung Kyung Lee | Inhyo Cho | 2016, 24(1) | pp.201~230 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    Anger toward God is the one of common spiritual struggles among Christian clients. Specifically, clients who experience traumatic events such as car accidents, sudden death of loved ones, or natural disasters of natures may feel anger at God. At that time, an existential question such as "Why me?" will be occurred with anger, confusion, or feeling of abandonment. However, clients may deny or repress it because they fear God's punishment, feel guilty about their lack of faith. Denying or repressing it will leave them with unresolved anger at God. Unresolved anger toward God is the most harmful factor of destructing one's relationship with God that can lead to 'emotional atheism.' Therefore, dealing with unresolved anger toward God is an important matter for recovery of their relationship with God. To provide effective interventions for resolving anger toward God, biblical understanding of anger, causes and consequences of anger at God are explained frist. Examples of biblical characters who honestly expressed feeling of abandonment or anger to God provide good insights to encouraging clients to openly process and cry out to God. Counseling techniques of exploring the anger, and rebuilding trust in and intimacy with God can help clients to experience spiritual growth like Job (Job 42:5).

    Hwang, Sunmi | Park, Sunhong | Kim, Yong Tae | 2016, 24(1) | pp.231~260 | number of Cited : 3
    Abstract PDF
    Acceptance has been associated with pain and suffering by promoting clients' positive adjustment in counseling. Existential perspective on acceptance encourages a human being becomes a responsible being; therefore, human beings need to face the contradictory nature of condition with courage, in order to live an authentic life. Current study presents the comparative perspective on acceptance, mainly focusing on existentialism and covenant theology. The authors re-define the existential approach of acceptance is to face the restricted human conditions and nature as it is. In this context, existential approach of accpetence can be called ‘the acceptance of facing’. In addition, the covenantal acceptance is considered 'the acceptance of surrendering', which emphasizes the voluntary attitude to leave one's life to God's divine authority. In order for Christians to deal with life pain and suffering, it is the authors' suggestion to apply covenantal acceptance that involves both God's grace and human courage. The nature of Christian existence is who participates God’s redemptive history, a grand narrative human beings place in. In this study, the authors also expand the convenantal accptance to 'the acceptance of participation'. This result will contribute to counselors in helping Christian clients to walk through the process of accepting God's divine authority and self-affirmation.
