WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT THIS TRAINING?

Every educational endeavor must be about credo and praxis: theory and practice. We
seek to help students think clearly and practically. Including the practical questions of
earning a living, we go beyond that to help ministers and professional counselors inte-
grate spirituality into their clinical work in intentional, respectful, ethical, and helpful
ways. We believe you will be a better caregiver or therapist because of our training,
AAPC certification, and the identity we help you develop.
