Individuals with divorce in their past form a growing part of our culture.  If you provide counseling, you deal with divorce and its impact.  The painful circumstances leading to or recovering from a divorce will frequently prompt individuals to seek counseling.  Gathering information about several key subjects will help determine the wisest manner in which to minister the hope and direction that Christ and His Word provide.  This session will provide practical suggestions to help you counsel as effectively as possible. 

This is a session from the Biblical Counseling Training Conference hosted by Faith Church in Lafayette, Indiana. 

People are looking for the hope that there are answers for their hurts, their difficulties, and the challenges they face. Since 1985, the Biblical Counseling Training Conference has been equipping ministry professionals and lay leaders to skillfully, confidently, and lovingly minister God's Word to those looking for answers.
