Add value to your practice

Investing in your practice, your education, and yourself is the best way to make your work more valuable. You don’t want to be a one-dimensional therapist. You want to be well-rounded and able to meet your clients wherever they may be in their mental health journey.

The importance of continuing education in this line of work cannot be overstated. However, there are thousands of courses available to mental health professionals, and some of them are more valuable than others. Sometimes it feels like you’re completing a course just so you can check off a licensing requirement. What you’re learning might be interesting information but it might not be the most relevant to your particular clients.

The “Working with Evangelical Clients: Basic Beliefs, Denominations, and Counseling Techniques to Use” course is incredibly valuable in gaining an understanding of your evangelical clients’ lives and backgrounds. Christianity is the largest religion in the United States, and odds are you have many evangelical clients every week. This three-hour course will help you work with your evangelical clients more effectively.

If you are in other states please check with your licensing board to make sure this course is approved for continuing education.

A Christian’s faith is an important part of their life. Often when people realize they are struggling with their mental health and look for help, they search for a therapist or other mental health professional to whom they can relate. They want someone who understands where they’re coming from, how they perceive the world, and how they deal with issues, conflicts, and trauma. This course will allow you to advertise that you can confidently provide that understanding that those clients crave.

This course provides an objective understanding of the main denominations of Christianity. While it is not an exhaustive list of every branch of Christianity, it gives a well-rounded overview to give you an idea of the core differences and similarities between the biggest denominations.

There is a brief explanation and history of the Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant churches, but the course hones in on the Protestant denominations, specifically Baptist, Christian, Lutheran, non-denominational, Presbyterian, and Pentecostal. There is a short discussion on mainline protestants versus evangelical protestants, with the focus being on evangelical protestants. You’ll learn about differing beliefs between the denominations, as well as which ones they share.

You will gain an even further understanding of different beliefs within each denomination. Take Calvinism versus Armenianism for example. These key opposing theological beliefs can vary within a denomination down to each church, and even individuals within the church.

The course spends time discussing these beliefs and how they can affect your client’s perspective on faith, salvation, and the afterlife.

You will gain perspective on your evangelical client’s worldview, their background, and how they experience life. All of these aspects add value to your practice, as they allow you to provide specialized care to each client. You will learn different techniques to use relevant to each client’s situation and needs– coping mechanisms and exercises you can share with them specific to their faith. The information shared in this course can be used daily with clients from several denominations.
