This course aims to go deep with the everyday and universal problems of life, such as guilt, shame, fear, anger and suffering. The course content also goes broad by considering problems that are not found in a concordance, such as bi-polar disorder, schizophrenia, dissociative identity disorder, anorexia and bulimia, and addictions. Through case studies, lectures, and outside readings, you’ll learn to move toward people with any type of struggle in a way that is engaging, helpful, and Christ-centered.
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.
