Crisis Intervention and Trauma Counselling

Crisis is unexpected, sudden and extreme, it may happen to anyone, and if not handled well may lead to significant mental health issues. Crisis intervention and responding to trauma is therefore unique as it aims to reduce the effects on long term mental health and personal well-being. This unit will provide a sound understanding of the skills, strategies and techniques for counselling traumatised people, and to apply knowledge and skills in practical situations.

A theological response to trauma and crisis will be explored together with the role of the counsellor in a range of contexts. Managing our own and the client’s emotional response whilst supporting clients through difficulties may result in seeing the beauty arise from the ashes. Perth Bible College is offering this unit in semester two, 2018, commencing on July 30 and may be accredited as an elective for a range of PBC courses and may be audited (sit in class with out doing assessments).

Christianity & World Religions

Australia has become highly multicultural at all levels of society.  It is essential for students seeking to minister, both in Australia and overseas, to gain an awareness of other people’s worldview, religions and cultures in order to develop principles and strategies for relating them and engaging them in dialogue.

The aim of this unit is to broaden the student’s understanding of the beliefs and practices of several of the major world religions and the way they are expressed in culture.  This unit will explore the differences and similarities between these religions and Christianity and ways in which Christians can relate, communicate and witness to people of other faiths in a multicultural, pluralistic society.

And as Christians – do we know how to engage in dialogue with a person from another religion?  Do we know what they believe in order to share our faith in an honest and purposeful way?
