CNS 5306 - Foundations of Clinical Mental Health Counseling

Credits: 3

This course is an introduction to the history, philosophy, roles, and functions of mental health counseling within the context of other mental health professionals, mental health services, systems, and programs. This includes the principles of mental health for prevention, intervention, consultation, education, and advocacy in a multicultural society. A key focus of the course is how the biblical texts and Christian traditions of soul-healing provide perspectives on human nature, suffering, and redemption to develop a model of clinical mental health counseling consistent with students’ own biblical worldview.
