Thank you for visiting BibleTherapy.com. This section has articles and information on Biblical Counseling, Biblical Change, Counseling Errors, Sexual Addiction, Counseling Theories and other counseling topics. Our goal is to provide articles and information to help individuals deal with problems and issues from a Biblical foundation and perspective.
There currently are 'hundreds' of psychology theories that differ on how to bring change and what causes personal or interpersonal problems. Most are opposed not only to each other, but take a very unbiblical view of how to help others.
Thank you for visiting. We have a small set of Theology websites that are divided or separated by category (though there is some overlap).

Be an Expert of the Child in Front of You
One struggle counselors, parents, teachers and youth workers often face is how to think about and approach children who have a psychiatric diagnosis. Even within the mental health profession there are differences of opinion. Some professionals under medicate and under diagnose, and others do the exact opposite. Regardless of which camp we fall into, we can quickly fall short of knowing and understanding the child in front of us if we allow psychiatric labels to define children and determine their paths.
“Be an expert of the child in front of you. Don’t be an expert on the labels and diagnoses. Don’t be an expert of ADHD, reactive attachment, or bipolar disorder—although I do think you should know about those things. Be committed to being an expert of the person in front of you. You will have a better understanding of how to love, how to speak wisely, and how to offer good counsel and treatment. ”
