Counselor Training Program

The purpose of the counselor training program is to provide both structured practicum for residents to learn the theory and practice of counseling and various teaching and supervision opportunities for therapists in training and pastors to sharpen their skills in pastoral care and counseling.

The practicum offers opportunities to:

  • Practice pastoral counseling with clients
  • Reflect on that practice in individual supervision and small groups
  • Study psychological theory
  • Develop pastoral care and counseling skills for ministry

The practicum is designed to complement the academic program offered for students working toward the Th.D. and D.Min. degrees in pastoral counseling at:

  • Columbia Theological Seminary
  • Candler School of Theology at Emory University
  • The Interdenominational Theological Center

The practicum prepares residents to:

  • Meet membership requirements in the American Association of Pastoral Counselors
  • Acquire course work and supervision hours that may be applied toward licensing in Georgia as a Professional Counselor or Marriage and Family Therapist

  • Temporary Relocation of the CCCG Offices

    Friends - due to flooding at the CCCG building (1814 Clairmont Road) we have had to temporarily move our offices. Business continues as usual until we are able to repair, rebuild and move back in to our main offices.

    The services CCCG provides at our 24 partner satellite locations will remain the same. Counseling sessions that were at the main CCCG building will be provided at
    2532 N Decatur Rd,
    Decatur, GA 30033
    (Scott Blvd Baptist Church)
    Get Driving Directions!

    unless your counselor has directed you otherwise.

    CPE and the Counseling Training Program will be in touch with program participants for re-located meeting and supervision locations.

    Our contact numbers remain the same, 404.636.1457.

    Thank you for your incredible support during this time.
