Christians Doing Marriage and Family Therapy
1.5 hours of CE credit
Too often, "Christian" is used as an adjective modifying "therapy" rather than as a noun attending to the person of a therapist. This workshop will endeavor to offer a model of conducting therapy consistent with broad Christian assumptions, considerate of ethical obligations, consciously aware of religious injury experienced by others, and sensitive to the multiverse of spiritual experiences.
