If you have a heart to help others, but are wondering how, this five day programme provides fundamental knowledge to support you in understanding people from a biblical perspective, helping them get to the roots of their problems. You will be encouraged to reflect on your own life in the light of the biblical model presented before using the principles to help others.
It provides fundamental learning for those wanting to explore whether a career in counselling is right for them or will equip those wanting to simply have a wider knowledge base to be a greater support to people and the community. It is suitable for those interested in both counselling and pastoral care and covers:
- The biblical basis for pastoral care and counselling
- Why problems develop, and how to help
- A clear framework for the counselling process
- Basic counselling skills
The ICCC programme is an excellent foundation for learning more about yourself and how to help others effectively, and is a way of helping you decide whether to take your listening skills further with the Waverley Abbey Certificate of Christian Counselling or by applying for a place on the Counselling BA (Hons) with Waverley Abbey College, the education arm of CWR.
