Inside the seminar
Dr. Brownback speaks from a depth of professional experiences. In addition to his counseling work, he has served as Dean of Word of Life Bible Institute, President of Citadel Bible College, and in roles as a pastor, director of a biblical counseling center, and faculty member. He is currently chaplain for a hospice organization and author of "The Danger of Self-Love."
Cognitive therapy is the most popular therapeutic approach of our day and has been adopted by the majority of Christian counseling professionals as their preferred model. Those who practice from this perspective consider it to be supported by Romans 12:2, "...be transformed by the renewing of your mind."
Though these counselors are well-intentioned, Dr. Brownback challenges this application to counseling while offering a perspective he considers to be more biblically consistent. The mind is certainly a focus of biblically grounded transformation, but how cognitive change is approached is a critical decision faced by all Christians, including those who counsel others.
Dr. Brownback will provide his thoughtful analysis of this most significant contemporary counseling approach. Those planning to counsel biblically would most benefit in learning how Christians ought to approach working with the thought life. Dr. Brownback is on the cutting edge of biblical analysis of secular developments in the world of psychotherapy.
