SoulCare Foundations I: The Basic Model
DetailsNumber of Lessons: 10Avg. Lesson Length: 27 MinutesTime Required: 10 Hours MinimumLevel: Intermediate
This course is designed to help you enter people’s interior lives at a meaningful level and make a lasting difference as they deal with life’s struggles and crises. Some people call this type of help “counseling.” Others call this help “pastoring.” And perhaps others think of this kind of involvement as what one friend does for another friend. Larry Crabb uses the word SoulCare, with its focus on the inner life, where we become who we were intended and long to be.

Loved this course.Jason
This course has been a truly enjoyable growing experience for me. Thank you for providing this course.Wesley
The lectures were interesting and very helpful to me in the aspect that they made me think and review how I communicate with people. The course gave me a new insight on how to approach, communicate, react, and adjust my behavior when communicating with individuals. I was actually very pleased with the amount of information that I was able to retain, and plan to use the concepts learned in my daily life with my family as well as in my work environment. I would highly recommend this course to my family, friends, and co-workers.Mary
This course has been life changing for me. The content has been stimulating and has given me insights into myself and relationships with others that I’ve never experienced before. Dr Crabb is an inspiration and I hope that I will have the opportunity to meet him as I progress with the SoulCare program. Thank you for hosting this course so efficiently and well, and with such care and grace.Jane
I have to say SoulCare is one of the best courses I’ve studied involving counseling. I find the teaching refreshing because it’s sole purpose is to make God the focus/center of the counseling you provide. It removes the “how do I fix this” aspect out of it, freeing you from taking on that burden. The answers come from the Ruach HaKodesh/Holy Spirit, from God, not from your own understandings – a contrast to what is typically taught in secular counseling.Jason
I enjoyed these lessons and learned a lot of information. I was worried if I would be able to sit through the videos; however, they are just the right length and full of information . . . I especially like how Dr. Crabb reviewed points that were significant even if it was mentioned in prior lessons. It helped all the videos flow together. I am excited to start the next course!Juliane
It was a great experience taking this course. I would highly recommend this to others; there was very meaningful material for myself and others to learn for our everyday lives, [in addition to] in our teachings. Great course and great material.Santana
I really enjoyed the course and learned a lot. Some of the material seemed a bit abstract and somewhat hard to fully grasp at the beginning. However, as the lessons progressed, Dr. Crabb did a good job of going deeper to explain the ideas more fully; adding meat to the bone and exploring what these concepts mean in more depth and how they are utilized in a practical sense. Very thought provoking and insightful stuff.Eric
Excellent course. Very helpful, interesting and will be put into play in real life.Jana
