What is Biblical Counseling?
Biblical counseling is an approach to counseling that uses the Bible to address the issues in the lives of individuals, couples, and families. The core belief is that the Bible is the inspired word of God and therefore has the answers to all of life’s questions. A primary focus of counseling is to develop a biblical worldview. In addition, an emphasis is placed on helping clients to understand the true nature of God and His love for us.
Cognitive Behavioral –
At JCS we believe it is important to explore each client’s thought life in order to identify the patterns that often keep a person “stuck” and can have an impact on daily functioning. We will work with you to challenge negative thought patterns and lies and to begin to identify and embrace truth and positive thinking. In addition, we look at how thinking influences emotions and behaviors and will work with you to develop effective and personalized coping mechanisms. We believe in the importance of looking at each client holistically and will strive to build upon strengths, gifts and abilities as part of an individualized treatment plan and process.
Trust-Based Relational Intervention
Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) is a holistic, evidence-based, attachment-based, and trauma-informed intervention designed to meet the complex needs of vulnerable children. Although TBRI was designed for children who have experienced some form of trauma, it has proven to be effective with all children. TBRI offers practical tools for parents, caregivers, teachers, or anyone who works with children, to help those in their care reach their highest potential. TBRI is designed to promote resilience in the face of trauma and consists of three principles- Connecting, Empowering and Correcting.
