We’ve designed our Observation Handbook to perfectly compliment the “Richard” 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 “Richard” Videos may be purchased separately
Since his conversion in the 70s during the Jesus movement, Richard has been a committed Christian and an active church member. Recently Richard has begun to struggle with serious discouragement, at times bordering on depression. He wishes he had made different decisions with regard to church, work and family and is finding himself growing bitter about the way things have turned out.
Like many Christians, Richard knows and believes the gospel but is struggling to see how it intersects with his current situation.
How has he drifted from its hope? Is it really relevant for him today?
The videos for this Student Handbook can be purchased as DVDs or digitally to stream (rent) or download (buy) in our Video on Demand format.
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. If you don’t want to pay for IBCD content, your experience will remain the same as it is today. 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?
Costs will never increase in the middle of any subscription term. As is the case with inflation, if our costs increase, we may increase the cost of a membership. If costs increase, we’ll notify you via email and private message on IBCD prior to renewing your subscription at the new rate.
