Theory Critique - Crabb and Hawkins Rose Monk COUN 507 Liberty University Dr. Hunter November 3, 2013 Concise Summary of Theories Larry Crabb’s model for Christian counselors is based on Christian values and includes secular principles that are consistent with Scripture.

Counselors should also seek to assist their clients in reaching their full potential for a life of service. He explains that this accomplished through the counseling relationship. This relationship will vary from client to client.

Christ Centered Cognitive Therapy Dennis Stoneman Liberty University Abstract This paper will address a more personal evaluation of psychotherapy theories, and techniques as they apply to what God is calling me to be as a counselor. As I have studied, I have gained a kinship to cognitive therapy, and have seen how Jesus himself was concerned not just by behavior, but by the need of a change in thinking. When Christ spoke of repentance, he spoke about changing the way a person is to think about a situation or sin. This will be the main focus of this paper. This paper will also discuss how I will address the clients I see in the future based on that cognitive model.
