Professional Pastoral Counselors League targets mental health professionals at their practice address who specialize in understanding and treating addictions and the impact the addiction has on the client, family, and society. These professionals treat patients and work within an established protocol used for treating addicts.
Counselors work in a variety of environments. Some counselors work in live-in or residential facilities that treat addicts. Others work with patients on an out-patient basis, and conduct meetings in churches, community outreach centers, doctor's offices, schools, at-risk communities, hospitals, or other related locations. Counselors are certified psychologists, therapists, or other medical professionals.
Professional Pastoral Counselors help patients overcome any issues that are negatively affecting their life, in a spiritual and a faith-based way. Issues may include deceased family members, falling on hard times, losing a job, and dealing with a terminally ill disease. Pastoral Counselors are usually affiliated with a specific church. They support and help their patients spiritually by reading from Scripture, conducting healing seminars, and schedules visits on a weekly or daily basis.
Counselors perform a series of interviews and use that information to provide constructive advice to improve the patient's health. Some incorporate spirituality into therapeutic treatments. The goal is to address underlying psychological needs from a variety of perspectives.
Counselors may provide one-on-one or group therapy to addicts. A counselor may encourage addicts to share their stories with others in order to learn through self-reflection. Counselors help addicts get to the root of their addictions to help them to learn behavioral management skills so that they are better able to cope with addiction.
Counselors must express a high degree of empathy for others. They are trained to see the signs of addiction, and to cope with patients who are struggling to overcome various mental health issues. Some counselors must also be trained to handle medical emergencies associated with withdrawal and overdose.
To practice as a mental health counselor, most have completed a master’s degree in counseling or a related field, followed by two years of clinical training working with patients, and successful completion of a certification exam. These medical professionals may be required to attend continuing education classes to maintain their certification, depending on where they practice. Many also belong to professional organizations to maintain professional credentials.
Counselors are well educated and have the discretionary income to travel, purchase products and services online or offline, hire construction and lawn maintenance professionals to care for their home, use credit cards, purchase professional clothing, and manage their personal financial portfolio and enjoying investing.
This list is ideal for any mental health continuing education courses, medical supplies, business publications, office supply catalogs, insurance, and credit card offers.
