Care for the Counselor: The Joy & Peace of Abiding in Christ

November 2022
Annual Celebration and Role Play

Below are the resources referenced during the role play with Jo at the EIBCC November 17. They are not strictly biblical counseling material, but with prayer and discernment, they can be used to help individuals experiencing suffering (as should be our practice with all material/presentations outside the Word of God). Not all of these resources applied to Jo; most resources were mentioned in regard to questions from the audience:

(Check out information regarding disclosures and (under childhood sexual abuse) warning signs to look for/ask about.)

Homework assignment, “Hope Comes from Knowing God as Our Father” was taken from A Christian Growth and Discipleship Manual: A Homework Manual for Biblical Living Volume 3, by Wayne A. Mack and Wayne Erick Johnston Available at Focus Publishing, Heritage Books, or the Faith Resources.
