About the Book

Crisis intervention/"Christ-is" intervention, Volume I, is a carefully researched guide for personal and professional growth that systematically enables an individual to shift from a crisis to healthy and valiant living. On a 25-year quest for the meaning of "self-value," the author/psychologist unveils the biblical origin and characteristics of "spiritual valueness." The relationship between spiritual crises and imbalances of values is biblically researched. Specific types of spiritual crises with their eight subtypes are explained so that individuals can assess these crises through practical applications and appropriate questionnaires. Drawing from principles and analogies in mathematics, chemistry, physics, and sports fitness training, Dr. Cosenza shows individuals in spiritual search how to shift the balances of their values on the spiritual seesaw of life so as to maintain spiritual valor in and out of crises. Using a step-wise spiritual fitness training model, he unfolds a spiritual model for crisis intervention or "Christ-is" intervention, which utilizes biblically based balance training exercises to prevent, evaluate, and correct particular critical conditions This unique form of spiritual fitness has major applications for individuals in need as well as spiritual leaders, mental health professionals, pastoral counseling, and health/fitness trainers.
