Feb. 19-21, 2015
Wyndham Dallas Suites - Park Central in Dallas, TX
Conference Theme: Never Alone
Scripture: Matthew 28:20 "And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
Steve Hunter, President of CCT, says, "I am pleased to announce our 2015 State Conference theme, "Never Alone." It is based on the Scripture found in Matthew 28:20 which states, "And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age." I don't know about you, but there are times when I feel so alone. I am also surprised by how many I disappoint--if it's not my spouse, or my kids, or my students, then its those I counsel. The list seems endless. Is that just true for me? Ministry can be such a lonely and discouraging calling. Our heart's desire and heart's prayer for all of you who join us in Dallas February 19 through 21 is for you to be reminded that even though you may feel alone, you are never really alone."
Keynote Speaker: Dr. H. Norman Wright, MFCC, CTS, BCBT.

Ethics Speaker: Dr. Randolph Sanders
"Providing Ethical and Compassionate Care for Clients: An Ethics Update"
Good ethical decision-making requires not only a good working knowledge of current codes, but also the ability to apply that knowledge wisely and compassionately. This workshop will update the counselor on some recent changes in codes and standards of care that impact the ethical practice of counseling. For example, we will consider the current ethical standards regarding the use of electronic modalities in counseling (email, telecounseling, etc.). We will also explore the matter of providing compassionate, ethical care when there are significant differences in values between client and counselor. We will look at the issues that must be understood when addressing spiritual matters in counseling. The workshop will also consider some special topics related to maintaining confidentiality. Principles will be illustrated with case examples and emphasis will be given to the specific kinds of issues that Christian counselors face.
Banquet Speaker Dr. Paul Meier
