Introduction to Biblical Counseling
Introduction to Biblical Counseling is an entry level course designed to introduce the student to biblical counseling (1) as a movement, including its key leaders and their writings, and (2) as a distinctive means of discipleship, with particular focus on methodology and the most common issues encountered by counselors.
As a result of taking this course, the student will be able to trace the history of the modern biblical counseling movement, understand how biblical counseling coheres with and is a subset of Christian discipleship, recognize and apply the basic elements of biblical counseling and apply them to case studies, and, finally, develop a general understanding of the broad categories of personal and interpersonal issues that are indicative of the human condition.
