CDC Level 1 DVDs

CDC Level 1 DVDs

Are Christians really competent to counsel one another?  What role does psychology play in the life of a Christian?  What methods should be used to help others deal with their struggles biblically?

Dr. Jim Newheiser addresses these fundamental questions and more throughout the IBCD Care & Discipleship curriculum. This 15-hour DVD set covers Level 1 of 3.

Level 1 is designed to acquaint people with an understanding of how the sufficiency of Scripture impacts how we view our struggles, especially in relation to psychology. It also deals with the general principles involved in biblical counseling and how one would use this method in situations involving anger, conflict, depression, fear, temptation, and dealing with trials.

This set contains 9 DVDs which cover all 20 sessions of the Level 1 CDC material.  The DVDs are tracked according to the Discussion Sections in the Leader Handbook, and extra outlines and mp3 messages can be accessed from a computer.  This set contains all of the instruction one needs for the CDC Level 1.

Watching Level 1 & Level 2 satisfies Phase 1.1 of the ACBC Certification process.
