Integrating Religion and Studying: In Our Counseling Division


Calvin Christian Faculty has been offering high quality Christian schooling to households in north San Diego County for 50 years.  We attempt to “combine religion and studying” in each space of our faculty and curriculum, even within the counseling workplace.

Brian Duyst is now in his twelfth 12 months as Calvin Christian’s highschool steering counselor.  I just lately requested Brian how he integrates religion and studying in his place as counselor.Brian started by explaining that there are two very distinct components to his job.  One is his function in private counseling and the opposite in faculty/profession counseling. 

In private counseling he talks to all college students about how we reside in a damaged world.  Which means all of us have struggles.  He reminds them that God has designed us to want one another and that we should always not undergo alone.  When counseling somebody individually Brian reminds the scholar that what impacts her or him impacts their religion as properly and our religion is crucial a part of who we’re. When an issue or concern is shared he typically asks, “How does God slot in with all of this?” He tries to assist them develop their capability to discern God’s will in troublesome conditions.  An instance could be “How will you forgive when somebody is hurting you?”

Within the space of school/profession counseling space Brian walks by a collection of steps with every pupil.  These steps assist them make selections in utilizing their presents and abilities and conducting their profession targets.  These discussions assist the scholar resolve the suitable schools or universities for which to use and generally he helps a pupil with different choices for “life after highschool commencement.”  He at all times begins with urging them to wish for knowledge and steering.  He shares about his transition from highschool to school and the way he noticed God was the one fixed that might be with him when he went off to school.

In each private and faculty/profession counseling Brian typically talks with college students about how the Calvin Christian expertise, or different experiences modified them.  He factors out that God is vitally all in favour of who every of us is changing into as an individual.  

At Calvin, as in all different areas of studying, our counseling workers strives to make the connection of religion and studying pure and purposeful.  As you may see from this temporary glimpse, that’s occurring at Calvin.
