A Critique of Two Theoretical Approaches: How to help people change by Dr. Jay E. Adams and Telling yourself the truth by Dr. William Backus and Marie Chapian Shanaya Dantzler Liberty University COUN 507_D04 In Adams (1986) counseling methodology is solely based on the counselor teaching the counselee the process of eradicating sin from one’s life in being Christ-like, through using scripture.
