Going beyond the androcentric personality theories and psychotherapies that not only feed individualism and limit the fullest development of persons particularly women, but also neglects the social and ethical dimensions of the ministry of pastoral care and counselling; it is the thesis of this book that in order to have long lasting and meaningful impact and for healing and wholeness to take place particularly for divorced women, Christian ministry in its care and counselling need to address the wider web of human society. A liberative pastoral care and counselling paradigm will be instrumental in bringing about changes in the lives of an individual as well as the society at large. It explores the centrality of theology and pastoral care and counselling as a way of understanding and responding to the profound human tragic experience.
