Why Marriage Counseling Must Focus on Mind, Body, Soul and Spirit — Glenn Lutjens

Summit Ministries

Glenn Lutjens, a marriage and family counselor at Focus on the Family, talks with Dr. Jeff about the way in which he offers wisdom to couples rooted in caring for their bodies, minds, souls and spirits. He explains how psychiatrists like Sigmund Freud championed an approach that removed the spiritual focus from the equation and why doing so has often resulted in incomplete and insufficient assistance being offered to couples struggling in their marriages. Restoring the spiritual element to counseling couples, he explains, allows both husband and wife to embrace their God-designed roles as spouses.
