Course Descriptions
 

Christian Counseling I

This course guides and trains you to handle difficult issues, from church and crisis counseling, to personal issues, such as anxiety, depression, anger, etc.… You will also learn how to counsel for developmental issues from adolescence to the later years, as well as impersonal issues, such as sex apart from marriage to homosexuality to violence and abuse.

 

Christian Counseling II

Continuing from Part I, this course picks up to learning how to counseling issues such as identity (inferiority and self-esteem, physical illness, singleness), family (from premarital to divorce and remarriage), and other issues. You will cover various topics such as mental disorders, alcoholism, addictions, financial counseling, spiritual issues, and even counseling the counselor.

 

Family Counseling

Studying how to become wise and compassionate, you will be guided from intake and assessment to treatment planning. You will learn the nuts and bolts of specific interventions, the nuances of establishing therapeutic relationships, and how to troubleshoot when treatment gets “stuck”. With vivid case examples, sample forms, and quick reference tables this course will enhance your skills in family counseling.
