Atlanta ’88

Journal of Biblical Counseling 10:1

In this article, Charles Zimmerman provides a summary of the event “Atlanta ’88,” a gathering of The International Congress on Christian Counseling held November 9-13, 1988 in Atlanta, Georgia. The event was promoted as “a hallmark event having impact on the Christian mental health field well into the decade of the 90s,” according to Dr. Gary Collins, National Coordinator. ZImmerman points to some of the speakers, proceedings and takeaways from this event including a summary of a breakout seminar by Dr. Paul Vitz, critiquing modern psychology. Jay Adams’s speech after receiving an award by the congress is found in JPP 10:1 (“Jay Adams’s Response to the Congress on Christian Counseling”).
