Not all counseling situations are the same; in fact, some situations need a more experienced and equipped counselor than others. Whether significant interpersonal conflicts, addictions, abuse, adultery, or suicidal thinking, crisis situations are God opportunities that demand our attention and test our convictions. If you would like to approach and direct a crisis situation with sound biblical steps of resolution, this is the workshop for you. You will learn how to use the hope of the Gospel in the context of community to bring redemption into some of the most urgent, hopeless, and difficult situations.

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.
Dr. Garrett Higbee was trained as a clinical psychologist with a specialty in marriage and family counseling, but had a radical conversion in 1992 which led him to trust in Christ and His Word for all things related to life and counseling. He has over twenty years of experience using the Scriptures to counsel couples, families, and youth and is dedicated to training those who lead and counsel others in Biblical soul care. Garrett is a frequent conference speaker and a contributing author for several biblical counseling books. Additionally, he has created several Biblical Soul Care training resources focused on small group discipleship.
