God had names for patterns of sin and suffering long before psychological labels came on the scene. While we don’t want to simply dismiss secular findings about human behaviors and problems, it’s important to know what God’s Word has to say about these things so we can counsel people from a solid biblical worldview. This session will equip you to better understand psychiatric labels from a biblical perspective with the goal of exposing the heart and developing a biblical heart language that makes sense of serious spiritual and emotional issues.
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.
