Formatted abstract
There is a church near my home whose front sign always grabs my attention. Not that it has any aesthetic appeal, relying solely on the use of a bright yellow background. But there is one word written in bold text that my eyes can’t ignore – COUNSELLING. While many commuters passing this sign may not even notice this offer of counselling, I notice it! Why? Because as a pastor and clinical counsellor, I am aware of many significant developments in church-based counselling practices in recent decades. Among these developments one issue has sparked considerable controversy more than any other – that of dual role relationships. This paper examines the nature of this controversy and its implications for those Australian clergy who counsel as part of their pastoral work.
