Reversing and Revising the Theology of Suffering for the Christian Counselee

April 21

9am - Noon

The intent of this course is to reverse and revise the theology of unjust suffering for the Christian counselee by answering, “What does the Bible say about God’s treatment of the unjust?” Dominant husbands, manipulative wives, harsh and controlling supervisors, abusive parents, and rebellious children threaten our happiness. Americans see happiness as a right, and relief as the answer to personal injustice. We will learn ways of helping others have a right view of injustice and suffering.

Anthropology and Psychologized Counselees

May 19

9am - Noon

Every system of counseling works with a "doctrine of man," secular or biblical.  Counseling theory and practice always grows out of your view of man. In this session we will explore how  the counseling theory and practice of a secular therapist, an integrationist and biblical counselor all grow out of their view of man.  As biblical counselors, we counsel folks all the time who have accepted psychological terminology to help themselves.  How should you understand such counselees, what are you to make of such terminology, and how can you help them?  We will also spend time with case studies and have time for Q and A.
