Title
Nouthetic Counseling Defended
Abstract

This paper is an analysis and refutation of John Carter's entitled, "Adams' theory of Nouthetic Counseling," in which Carter attacked Jay Adams' Nouthetic counseling as being inadequate and unbiblical. Carter's accusation of Adams as being close to a "full-fledged" behaviorist is also refuted. Further examined are Carter's attacks of Adams' theory of man, Adams' counseling model process, and technology. In all of these areas, Carter either misunderstood or misrepresented Adams and in places contradicted his own argument. A further analysis is made of Carter's understanding of authority and Ecclesiology.
