Basic Problems in Christian Counselling

This course introduces students to a range of issues commonly encountered by soul care providers in the context of contemporary Christian ministry. In an interactive class format incorporating lectures, case studies, multimedia and group discussions, students will be challenged to think about these issues in both a theologically and psychologically sound manner, and to respond with wisdom and compassion to the special needs of those to whom they minister.
