Title
Training Christian People Helpers: Observations on Counselor Education
Abstract

How should counselors be trained? This issue has concerned professionals for many years but interest in counselor education has increased with the proliferation of training models, the appearance of new training programs, and the increased public acceptance of counseling. This article reviews several present approaches to counselor training, summarizes some current trends in counselor education, and proposes a people helper-training model. This model begins with the Bible, is strongly based in psychological knowledge and techniques, and emphasizes professional, pastoral, peer, psychological-apologetic, public, and preventive aspects of people helping.
