203 Fostering Healing and Growth

This training lesson is designed to help you identify any habits, attitudes, behaviors or traumas your counselee may have brought into the Kingdom of God with them. The spiritual and developmental challenges associated with these are explored. You will discover the five components of your counselee’s personal reality. Also, you will learn some observational skills which can teach you much about the person simply by carefully noticing the person from the moment you meet them and introduce them to your office until they leave. A strong emphasis is placed on the importance of didactic skills in counseling. You will learn 10 counseling techniques that will help you effectively communicate with the persons you see. And, you will learn a much more detailed way of applying my Healing of the Mind Model in the counseling process.
