Biblical Counseling and Mental Illness

In counseling, we often find ourselves confronted with the question: Which issues are spiritual problems and which are not?Are people suffering because of physical or because of spiritual problems? What about “mental illness”? What is “weakness”? When should we talk of sin?
We need to know: What issues is the Bible and “Biblical Counseling” sufficient for? What are our opportunities and what are our limits?
Wrong answers and approaches to these questions have led to much pain in the practice of counseling. At our NBS-Conference 2018 we want to address these important issues.
Our speakers are: Dr. Heath Lambert, pastor, professor, author, and director of ACBC, as well as Dr. Charles Hodges and Dr. Dan Wickert, two medical doctors who pursue both their medical practices, as well as biblical counseling. Both have dealt extensively with this area of study and are known for their work through lectures and publications.
During the three-day conference, there will be six main sessions, as well as numerous breakout sessions to address this crucial topic. Other counseling topics will be addressed during the breakout sessions. On Friday night, there will be an “open evening”, which will address a special topic.
The main sessions, as well as several breakout sessions will be offered in English and translated into German. Some breakout sessions will only be offered in English or German.
