You need to familiarize yourself with the nature of the work. This course will take time and effort. While you may progress through the assignments at your pace, we believe you will make the best use of your commitment if you know what you are committing to—and thoughtfully consider how to make this program a part of your weekly routine.

Below, are the “course lessons.” There are six of them. Inside these lessons are projects, response papers, reading assignments, and videos. It is vital for you to have a system in place as you move forward. Once you start the first block, you can think through and plan your pace.

We have you doing theology and sanctification throughout the program. Counseling involves the application of theology; thus without a strong background in practical theology, you cannot offer sound and practical wisdom from the Word of God.

Learn and Apply

Incidentally, one of the values of our training is “simultaneous studying and applying” that you will be doing. In college, you learn in the classroom, and after you start your job on the “plant floor,” four years later, you put into practice what you learned in the classroom. We designed our program for you to both learn and practice at the same time.

Different Perspectives

This program presents specific theological perspectives, some of which you may not hold. Our goal is not to necessarily change your views on theology, but to offer perspectives held by respected Christians. We ask you to refrain from debating theological points but to apply the teaching to your heart practically.

There will be more material than you can apply. If there are areas where you disagree, we ask you to let it go and move on to the next thing. It is not possible to construct a program for Christians around the world with the expectation that we’re all going to agree on each theological point.

We, The Counseling Solutions Group, Inc., do not agree on each point of theology presented by every author of the material in this program. But we do respect each author, and we see the value in how God has been working in their lives and we, too, want to learn from them.

(We will occasionally let you know about upgrades and enhancements designed to make your experience clearer and more satisfying.)

Also, you receive a free membership to our website as long as you’re in the program. You should be posting on the forum at least once each week. The more you interact on the forum, the better it will be for you regarding your overall training.

Your progress will be tracked in real-time by your Learning Management System (LMS). Now that you have read “your first assignment,” let us know in the mastermind forum that you have read it and you’re ready to begin your coursework.
