ADC440: Integration of Christian Faith in Professional Counseling (undergrad section of graduate course)

Course Description

This course is designed to help professional counselors articulate a Christian worldview of counseling so they may hold to their faith commitment while respecting the differing worldviews of clients in a pluralistic society. In the course students will analyze the basic worldview assumptions of Christianity as compared to the secular counseling profession and develop a Christian philosophy of how to counsel effectively. To aid in this, the course compares the different models of Christian integration that have been formulated in the field.
