CHRISTIAN COUNSELING
In these courses you will study the basics of Christian Counseling. Each course is a prerequisite for the next counseling course and all need to be completed, in order, before proceeding to the next counseling course. The book of Job course is also considered a counseling course along with the following courses and all are core courses that must be completed by all students. However, the book of Job may be studied at any time and is not a prerequisite course for the counseling courses on this page.
If you have not yet studied the Book of Job course, which is also a counseling course, you may access it by clicking the name of the course.
If you have not yet studied the Spiritual Warfare course, which is also a counseling course, you may access it by clicking the name of the course.

Textbook
Workbook
Counseling is an area where most preachers and workers suffer from a woeful lack
of proper training. In this course you will be taught some basic, practical,
counseling principles. You will not be a polished counselor when you
finish this course but you will have some practical, biblical, approaches to help
with many of the typical problems faced by people in general.
In this course you will use the textbook, Practical Counseling
Principles For Christians, by Dr. Jeff Owens. You will also use the
companion SLBC workbook, Christian Counseling, by Dr. T.E. VanBuskirk.

TESTING: Make sure you read and submit the Testing Instructions Agreement if you have not already done so. All section tests are closed book, which means you cannot use your textbook or any other study material nor have anyone help you while taking the section tests. The Final Test is also a closed book test, which means you cannot use your textbook or any other study material nor have anyone help you while taking the Final Test.
Attendance: These
are the numbers that you enter on each of the required forms.
- Required minimum
Attendance for the course is 20 weeks.
- Required minimum
Attendance per Lesson is 3 weeks.
(This requirement means that you must spend at least
3 hours, minimum 1 hour per week for 3 weeks, studying each
lesson. This is the minimum of study time required per
lesson. You will be asked in the lesson tests if you have
met this requirement.)
Some lessons will require more study time than others.
To take more than 3 hours of study time per lesson is allowed but
to take less than three hours of study time per lesson is not allowed.
The necessity for more than three hours study time for some
lessons is why there are extra weeks figured into the minimum
attendance required for the course overall. Also, the extra weeks
will give you a chance to go through the textbook and workbook at
the end of this course and check to see that you have all of the
correct answers in the workbook notes that you have written down
or in the copy of the workbook that you downloaded and filled out
during this course.
