Addictions Counseling

Coordinated by Advisors

The addictions counseling track is designed to provide specialized training for those students who wish to work with individuals in the broad area of addictions. These students will be trained to work with a wide range of issues but will receive specific training related to human addictions that is grounded in Christian theology.

Child and Adolescent Counseling

The child and adolescent track is designed to provide specialized training for those students planning to work primarily with children and teens. These students still fulfill all licensure requirements and also are trained in working with adults. However, they receive systematic training in important areas needed to provide counseling to children and adolescents from a Christian perspective.

Christian Sex Therapy

Dr. DeAnne Terrell, Coordinator

The Christian sex therapy track is designed to provide specialized training for those students who wish to work with individuals in the broad area of sexuality. These students will be trained to work with a wide range of issues but will receive specific training related to human sexuality that is grounded in Christian theology.

Spirituality and Counseling

Dr. Gary Moon, Coordinator

The spirituality and counseling track is designed to provide specialized training for students who desire to explicitly integrate principles and practices from historic Christian spirituality into their professional practice. While this degree option is designed to fulfill the academic requirements for licensure, it also affords a systematic focus on how the practices of Christian formation and spiritual direction may be integrated into the counseling process.

Trauma Counseling

Dr. Jana Pressley, Coordinator

The trauma counseling track is designed to provide specialized training for students who wish to work with clients who have experienced a history of trauma and/or abuse. This track emphasizes the understanding and treatment of “complex trauma”–trauma that typically began in the early, developmentally formative years and involved maltreatment by a major attachment figure/caregiver. However, these courses will also address the treatment needs of those who have suffered acute traumatic experiences. Richmont is partnering with national experts in the field of trauma treatment to provide training that combines understanding of biological impact of trauma, research-based treatment models, and faith integration.
