Christian Care and Counsel - A Certificate Program

Equip yourself to be what others need

The Christian Care & Counsel Certificate Program is an intensive, skills-building class designed for teachers, deaconesses, family life directors, DCEs and others who work with youth. 

Compassionate adults are desperately needed in education and faith settings to help young people who are hurting. The Christian Care & Counsel Certificate Program will increase your understanding of the emotional, familial and spiritual challenges faced by those you serve and explore skills to respond to them, including:

  • Responding to anxiety, depression and trauma
  • Helping parents cultivate mental wellness at home
  • Mental health resilience to prevent compassion fatigue 
  • Conflict resolution
  • Confidence in making referrals
Dr. Beverly Yahnke

The program will be presented by Dr. Beverly Yahnke, who serves as the Executive Director for Christian Counsel at DOXOLOGY.

Continuing education units will be available upon request to those who complete the course.
