WEEK 5: HSCO506_D04_202230 Book Review: McMinn

Learning Goal: I’m working on a other question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.


You will complete a book review of Psychology, Theology, and Spirituality in Christian
Counseling by McMinn that consists of 4 sections, each with a current APA heading. Use the
provided APA template which has a correct title page, headings, and examples of in-text
citations, and reference page (McMinn listed as the reference). You will not use any additional
sources for this paper.
The McMinn book can be divided into 2 broad “parts.” The first part comprises chapters 1–2 and
in those chapters, McMinn lays down a foundation for the rest of the book. In your summary of
the first 2 chapters, explain the essential elements in McMinn’s approach to the integration of
psychology, theology, and spirituality into counseling. If you had to identify the most important
concepts in McMinn’s foundation, what would they be? Present your points clearly, with ideas
organized by paragraphs. The second part of the book comprises the application chapters
(chapters 3–8). In your summary of these chapters, identify the most important elements of each
chapter that best characterize McMinn’s approach to integration. Consider using a separate
paragraph for the summary points from each of the chapters. For length, the first section of your
paper should be the longest section (2+ total pages suggested for summary).
Personal Reflection
We often remember what speaks to us personally. Pick out a few concepts from McMinn that
most resonated with you and tell us why they touched you personally. Make sure you provide a
clear tie-in to a main point from McMinn. Do not just tell a personal story prompted by
secondary points – stick to the main ideas. Make this section approximately 1 page.
What did you find truly unique about McMinn’s approach? What was most helpful? What
suggestions from McMinn will be most difficult to utilize in your own counseling? In this
section, pick out 3–5 unique ideas (generally not found in every other book on Christian
counseling) and explain why you found them unique, or difficult, absolutely essential, or
impossible to apply, etc. Highlight the 3–5 unique points to make them obvious to the reader and
make this section approximately 1 page. What you write in this section must exhibit that you
read this book thoughtfully.

Think of how you would apply concepts from this book to your work as a human services
counselor. First, briefly describe the setting in which you will most likely work (or presently do
work)—community services agency, hospital, adoption agency, church counseling center,
probation office, etc. Then for your particular agency, list at least 5 important concepts from
McMinn that you most likely will apply in your work on that setting. Briefly explain how you
would apply McMinn’s concepts. Why did you choose those particular concepts? You could also
explain the challenges you might face as you seek to integrate psychology/theology/spirituality
into your human services counseling. In this section, provide a numbered list of concepts. This
section should be a minimum of 1 page.
Keep in mind that while the APA template with correct and current APA formatting is provided,
you must present your ideas using professional (graduate level) writing. Writing quality and
APA will count for 30 points of your total. Note that page length is suggested; you will not be
penalized for going over the suggested length unless the longer length reveals poor writing.
Sections shorter than the suggested length may indicate inadequate content.
Note: Your assignment will be checked for originality via the Turnitin plagiarism tool.
