Level 2: Practicum (Our Counseling Model)

Jan 01, 2018

Level 2: Practicum is a training opportunity designed to give participants an overview of the counseling relationship from start to finish.

This level 2 training typically includes 10 two-hour weekly meetings. Each session includes both theory and practice: a one-hour lecture and discussion on a particular topic, and a one-hour group meeting spent practicing concepts within a small group. Group time includes telling your own story, giving and receiving feedback, and participating in the group.

As a result of your committed participation, you will begin to develop a model of counseling, understand the basic counseling process, begin to counsel others informally, and benefit from a transformative group experience.

Successful completion of Level 2: Practicum and a recommendation to join an LCI Supervision Group are required for continuing on toward providing more formal lay counseling.

Last year was full of transitions for me. Some left me questioning myself, my feelings and my thoughts. Fortunately, I was able to attend the three levels of Lay Counselor Training, beginning with The Glorious Mess Seminar. Though I had lots of previous training in leadership, discipleship and shepherding others, I found the content of the Glorious Mess was different. Ironically, though I attended so that I could improve my ability to help others, I was helped as I learned how I was made in God’s divine image, but also struggled with depravity; how my early experiences contributed to my current perceptions; and how expectations, goals and desires created conflict. More importantly, I learned how to re-train my thoughts and beliefs according to the grace AND truth of Jesus Christ, as I got comfortable in my ongoing story.
