In this episode, Winston Smith and Cecelia Bernhardt discuss various aspects of biblical counseling at CCEF. They take the time to talk about how CCEF and biblical counseling differs from secular counseling and even broadly Christian counseling, the types of counseling issues they typically face, CCEF’s position on diagnostic issues found in the DSM, how biblical counselors use the Bible in their counseling, and what qualifications that are required for a biblical counselor.
