Dr. Winter Teaches at 2014 Cambridge Summer School of Counseling
By Covenant Seminary on Tuesday, July 8th, 2014
Posted In: Uncategorized

After a sell-out course in 2012, Dr. Richard Winter, professor of practical theology and counseling, returns to Westminster College in Cambridge, England, July 7 - 11, 2014, to teach at the Cambridge Summer School of Counseling. His course, A Biblical Approach to Counseling, examines the relationship between theology, psychology, and counselling in order to establish a biblical framework for Christian counselling.

Designed for anyone who would like to develop understanding, discernment, and practical application in caring and counselling, the course explores issues of grief and depression, anger and forgiveness, anxiety and fear, perfectionism, shame, and addictions. Theory and practice are held hand in hand throughout, developing skills in listening, reflecting, paraphrasing, asking good questions, and facilitating change.

Dr. Winter directs the Master of Arts in Counseling (MAC) program at Covenant Seminary and also has a psychotherapy and counselling practice. Before coming to Covenant, he served as staff and director of the English L’Abri Fellowship for 14 years. Prior to that, he worked as a medical doctor and psychiatrist in Bristol, England, and was a member of The Royal College of Psychiatrists. For the last few years he has led the counseling track at the European Leadership Forum in Hungary. His long-term interest has been researching and teaching at the interface between psychology, medicine, and theology.

Dr. Winter is the author of When Life Goes Dark: Finding Hope in the Midst of Depression (IVP, 2012), Perfecting Ourselves to Death: The Pursuit of Excellence and the Perils of Perfectionism (IVP, 2005), and Still Bored in a Culture of Entertainment: Rediscovering Passion and Wonder (IVP, 2002).
