Counseling Children and Adolescents Course Description
Today’s children and teens struggle with many common counseling issues, such as depression, eating disorders, broken relationships, suicide, and peer pressure, to name a few. At the root of these problems is a heart struggle that the Lord wants to redeem and transform through the application of Gospel truths. Through practical, hands on project assignments and creative class exercises, you’ll learn how to build a relationship with a child or teen and apply Scripture in a way that gives life. You will apply the counseling strategies and methodology taught in class, with a child or adolescent of your choosing, with whom you will commit to meet weekly throughout the duration of the course.
Students will watch lectures, read materials, and write papers at home, and then meet together every other Thursday face-to-face as a cohort to discuss lecture content, readings, and other questions about how to apply concepts and do biblical counseling more effectively. Come take advantage of this unique opportunity!
This course is taught at a graduate level, though you do not need any prior degrees to participate. Courses can be taken for credit, or they can be audited. Auditing is less expensive, but taking the courses for credit allows the Recitation Instructor to provide feedback on all assignments, which facilitates growth and understanding for each of the students. The tuition is $500 if taken for credit, and $375 if audited.
