We’ve designed our Observation Handbook to perfectly compliment the “Jesse” Observation Videos by including the “Personal Data Inventory” (PDI) for each of the counselees as well as note taking forms and questions for each case based on the ACBC Case Report Form. Answers are also provided at the end of the Handbook. The “Jesse” Videos may be purchased separately
Jesse, like many counselees, has been a believer for some time and is a regular attender of a church where he and his wife are both members. No major crisis of faith or circumstance has driven Jesse to seek counseling. Rather, his represents the common case of the struggle for sanctification through the trials of life.
Everyday pressures and conflicts of work, finances, marriage and family have left him wondering if he can take it much longer. He senses he lacks the joy and peace that he knows are said to accompany the Christian life. Is this all there is? How can he persevere when there is no perceivable end in sight? Is he missing something?
It is our hope that these sessions will illustrate for you how the gospel is the best hope for the “Jesses” in this world.
The videos for this Student Handbook can be purchased as DVDs or digitally to stream via our Individual Subscription.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will IBCD become a paid-content only site
No. We are not changing the day-to-day format of the site, nor are we moving any existing content free content or videos behind a paywall.

We created the subscription plan because we have great ideas for new additional content, and we need audience support to develop and produce the ideas.
Does this mean there won't be new features for non-paying members?
Don’t worry! We’re going to keep rolling out new features for everyone in addition to member-exclusive content. We a committed to providing mp3 audios on the website and in the IBCD Resource App for free as we’ve found the archive to be a great benefit to everybody.
Will the cost of my subscription increase once I've signed up?
