Grace Professor Releases New Book

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

Grace College graduate counseling professor Dr. Tammy Schultz has released a new and insightful book, titled “Beyond Desolate: Hope Versus Hate in the Rubble of Sexual Abuse”. The 342-page paperback tackles the difficult topic of recovery from sexual abuse and is meant to provide a biblically-based resource for recovering victims.

Schultz, an active worker in the therapeutic community, partnered with Hannah Estabrook, M.A., to write the book, which may be used by therapists, within support groups, or for individual healing and processing. Schultz has taught 17 years in Grace’s Graduate Department of Counseling and Interpersonal Relations and has dedicated much of her research and professional life to helping victims of sexual abuse.

“Beyond Desolate,” published by Winona Lake’s BMH Books publishing company, is available online, at bookstores, or at www.bmhbooks.com for $16.99.

Grace College and Seminary is an evangelical Christian community of higher education that offers undergraduate and graduate degrees and applies biblical values in strengthening character, sharpening competence and preparing for service. Grace College also offers flexible online and hybrid-online graduate degrees, on-campus and online degree completion programs, and highly affordable, easily accessible two-year degree programs in Fort Wayne and Indianapolis.

Fall 2012 Hybrid Counseling Residential Week

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

The Department of Online Education and the Department of Online Graduate Counseling was privileged to welcome 28 graduate counseling students to beautiful Winona Lake, Indiana, during their in-residence portion of the online Clinical Mental Health Counseling program.   The students arrived on campus for orientation on Sunday, August 19th, followed by a dinner reception.  Classes began on August 20th and ended on the 24th. The program director, Dr. Chris Hull, along with Dr. Jenny Preffer and Dr. Rhonda Ladd guided the students through an intense week of understanding the relationship of theology and prayer in counseling.  Much of the week was also spent learning and practicing foundational counseling skills that prepare students for their ongoing practice throughout the program and into their careers.

While the time on campus is intense, the counseling faculty value the importance of connecting outside of the classroom. Dr. Hull took advantage of beautiful Winona Lake (within walking distance of campus) and arranged an afternoon of canoeing and kayaking, a perfect break for the students, faculty and staff.
