Pastoral Counseling Training Seminar

TVPC is passionate about implementing effective counseling ministries within local churches to serve as a first response center for those who are hurting. To answer this call, we offer an intensive training program for both professional and lay ministry leaders in all areas of pastoral counseling. These all-inclusive seminars are held once a month in Decatur, Alabama, and include everything needed to begin and maintain a counseling ministry.

Some topics presented include: Introduction to Pastoral Counseling, Counseling Models & Techniques, Legal & Ethical Issues, Individual Counseling, Marriage & Family Counseling, Group Counseling, Recognizing Mental Illness, Counseling Children & Adolescents, Crisis & Trauma Counseling, and more! Those who successfully complete the training are also eligible for membership in the North America Christian Counselors Association.

Seminar registration is only $199 per person and includes the conference (lectures, training materials, exams, and certificate), hotel accommodations, meals & refreshments, and evening performances by Christian artists. There is also a group discount, early bird discount (or combination of both) which are available on the registration page. A detailed flyer with a full itinerary can be downloaded below.
