This episode is from last year's Association of Biblical Counselors - 2019 Called To Counsel National Conference Where we sat down with Greg Wilson, D.Ed.Min., LPC-S to discusses the nature and scope of “Domestic Violence”, providing a working definition for domestic violence and presents an educational glimpse into the world of a common perpetrator and consequent victim, and provides a fresh perspective on how the church needs to understand the delicacy of domestic abuse in the local church.
In this episode, the hosts, Mike, Shauna, and Jeremy continue their "Heart of the Matter" series with the "Put On" tool of helping counselee's put on godly thoughts, feelings, and actions. The heart of man is always worshiping, the heart is never idle. This new ABC resource helps counselee's understand their responsibility of putting on godly thoughts, feelings, and actions in the same way that they take off ungodly thoughts, feelings, and actions.
This episode was from last year's ABC Conference - 2019 Called To Counsel National Conference - and in this episode, the hosts, Mike, Shauna, and Jeremy interview Curtis Solomon, Executive Director for The Biblical Counseling Coalition. Curtis takes time to Demystify PTSD by removing the D out of it. It’s not an abnormal reaction to normal life, but it’s really a normal response to really extreme and difficult circumstances. PTSD is severely misunderstood, and in this episode, Curtis offers a robust understanding of the nature and scope of PTSD. And given the social climate in our culture right now, consequently, the probability of traumatic stress is quite high.

Given the state of our country right now, all the suffering happening through deathly virus', injustice, rioting as a retaliation, etc., we wanted to share our podcast with Paul Tripp from last year's ABC National Called To Counsel Conference about the hope of the Gospel through suffering. Paul Tripp discusses his heart behind his recent book release on suffering, “Suffering: gospel hope when life doesn’t make sense”, which was largely due to his own recent experiences in suffering through an acute renal failure. Listen as Paul shares the nature of suffering and our response to it.
This episode was from a year ago when we were at The 2019 "Called to Counsel" Conference interviewing Lee Lewis, pastor, and biblical counselor - discussing the nature of depression and biblically responsive ways to identify it and confront it.

She discusses a biblical-connected approach to EMDR and its process and how to get started.
In this episode, the hosts, Mike, Shauna, and Jeremy discuss ABC's assessments; how they are built and how they can be utilized in real-time with clients.

In this episode, the hosts, Mike, Shauna, and Jeremy discuss a new counseling resource tool from ABC that is designed to help facilitate a process with counselees to help with the opportunity of examining their hearts drawn from Psalm 26:2. This tool uses a heart log for the counselee to help capture and identify where there heart was in a situation to expose deeper rooted issues and learn how to "Put off" deceptive thoughts, desires, and habits. This tool can be used immediately with counselees; they interact with the process and can be used as homework.
