Title
Referral Patterns of Clergy
Abstract

The purpose of this research was to explore the referral pattern of a group of clergy in a large midwestern city; to examine the type of problems being seen in counseling by clergy; and, to determine the status of pastoral counselors among mental health professionals. The data showed that clergy use a variety of mental health professionals for referrals for different types of problems. Large portions of problems seen by clergy in counseling are in the areas of marriage and family problems. Pastoral counselors are viewed as important mental health therapists along with psychiatrists, psychologists and social workers.
