Helping Relationships Change Course Description
Let's say you have a basic and growing understanding of biblical counseling. You know the key ideas and have been able to apply them to yourself. Now comes the hard part: How do you apply this understanding in your everyday relationships? This course will take the content you already know and get specific about how you can actually deliver the content. Case studies, lectures, and group discussions will help you grow in your ability to listen well, know people, interpret another person’s story from a biblical perspective, and offer biblically-based truth that will motivate others in their growth in Christ.
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 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.
