“Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives.” (Colossians 3:16 NLT-SE)

The next AIM UK and Ireland module is on the topic of counselling and psychology. The module aims to equip the body of Christ to be “competent to counsel” one another.

Christian Counselling is a much-neglected discipline. Yet, it has tremendous potential to assist maturing and Christlikeness. We must be well-equipped and prudent–especially in this day and age. The AIM Counselling & Psychology Module includes a basic introduction and training in psychological, marriage, family, and personal spiritual counselling and an overview of how to build and maintain an excellent personal spiritual foundation for oneself. This module also examines current cultural trends in society and how to address them as issues within the church and when interacting with friends, neighbours, and family members in broader cultural contexts. Attention is also paid to local cultural contexts in various world cultures.

This module is for anyone — leaders or not — who wishes to receive solid practical and theological training in basic Christian biblical counselling and an introduction to basic principles of counselling, including when and how to refer people to professional counsellors.

More detailed information about what will be taught on the day and what will be provided later online will be forthcoming shortly. In the meantime we can confirm that the date is Saturday, the 9th of December at our usual venue, the West Watford free church, Tolpits Lane, Watford, WD18 6NU.

Registration will go live in the next few days.
