We live in fearful times. The events of 9/11 have reminded us of how little real control we have over our lives and have produced a culture of fear. In this lecture Dr. Adams talks to us about the fearful counselees we will be dealing with more and more in these times. This lecture was recorded at an annual meeting of the National Association of Nouthetic Counselors. There is an occasional sound problem during the first ten minutes of the lecture but it was identified and solved without detracting from the lecture.
