Covalent Counsel: In Pursuit Of The Ultimate Intimate Spiritual Experience is a bold and provocative spiritual direction for personal transformation. The author/psychologist offers spiritual keys to maintaining intimacy with God and others. His four stages of covalence are groundbreaking for those who yearn for a deeper knowledge and experience of Christ. Dr. Cosenza's biblically based presentation of spiritual healing and forgiveness shatters old notions on how to mend relationships. The author upholds the profound belief that all love, power, faith, and hope are found in God through Christ. His "five life and death questions" elevate us to higher levels of spiritual thinking regarding death and life after death. This book provides unique dimensions for interpersonal growth that have major applications for mental health professionals, spiritual leaders, and those who want to understand the role of spirituality in helping others.

Crisis intervention/"Christ-is" intervention, Volume I, is a carefully researched guide for personal and professional growth that systematically enables an individual to shift from a crisis to healthy and valiant living. On a 25-year quest for the meaning of "self-value," the author/psychologist unveils the biblical origin and characteristics of "spiritual valueness." The relationship between spiritual crises and imbalances of values is biblically researched. Specific types of spiritual crises with their eight subtypes are explained so that individuals can assess these crises through practical applications and appropriate questionnaires. Drawing from principles and analogies in mathematics, chemistry, physics, and sports fitness training, Dr. Cosenza shows individuals in spiritual search how to shift the balances of their values on the spiritual seesaw of life so as to maintain spiritual valor in and out of crises. Using a step-wise spiritual fitness training model, he unfolds a spiritual model for crisis intervention or "Christ-is" intervention, which utilizes biblically based balance training exercises to prevent, evaluate, and correct particular critical conditions This unique form of spiritual fitness has major applications for individuals in need as well as spiritual leaders, mental health professionals, pastoral counseling, and health/fitness trainers.
