Theories of Counseling

The purposes of this course are to provide students with an understanding of the major theories of counseling and their related techniques so that students can then apply theoretical material to their approach towards evangelism.  Please note that taking this abbreviated course does NOT give you the ability to present yourself as a counselor and will not cover the required theories for licensure. This is simply an introduction into the various approaches that trained counselors use when working with clients. Students will be exposed to an overview of current approaches to psychological counseling, including: Psychoanalytic, Adlerian, Existential, Person-Centered, Cognitive-Behavior, and Reality therapies.  Emphasis is on both theory and practical applications of the various approaches.  Students will be encouraged to examine the various theories and to integrate them into their own style of evangelism.
