Overview

For those who have a passion for helping others and who would appreciate the foundation of Bible-based counseling training, Dr. Timothy Clinton offers PD171 Biblical Soul Care. PD171 presents the intersection of psychology and faith in the practice of counseling and explores the increasing need for a response to the stresses of twenty-first century American life. The course draws on numerous biblical passages to augment psychology’s explanations and treatment suggestions for a distressed person’s needs and is replete with examples from Dr. Clinton’s experience as a practicing counselor. This course will help you become better prepared for the counseling demands in your ministry and life in general.

Getting the most out of Mobile Ed

Logos Mobile Education is a highly effective cross-platform learning environment that integrates world class teaching with the powerful study tools and theological libraries available in Logos Bible Software. Every course provides links to additional resources and suggested readings that supplement the lecture material at the end of every transcript segment.

This course was produced with screencast videos. These videos provide tutorials showing you how to use Logos Bible Software in ways that are tied directly into the content of the course. We are now producing Activities resources as a replacement for screencast videos. We plan on updating this course to include this additional Activities resource in the future for no extra charge.
