The Christian Counseling Department employs a method of biblical counseling and guidance utilizing spiritual/biblical principles. In this kind of discipleship process, the Holy Spirit, not the counselor, is the agent of individual change. Our goal is to present God’s plan for victory in the midst of one’s circumstances. At CLEP Christian Counseling Center, we utilize the Arno Profile System. The key to your authentic future begins with true self-knowledge. Your Personal Temperament Profile is created using the famous Arno Profile System. With accuracy rates exceeding 90% this fascinating profile has helped hundreds of thousands of people. This comprehensive report is created specifically to present the information in an encouraging and non-threatening manner. It is necessary to have an APS temperament score in order to determine the temperament. The score is obtained through the A.P.S. Temperament Response form – a 10-minute, 54 questions test.
Clients receive a detailed Personal Temperament Profile, a report identifying their temperament in Inclusion, Control and Affection with a listing of individual strengths, weaknesses and temperament needs. Temperament theory states that people will live in their temperament strengths when their temperament needs are met. The report includes suggestions for clients and their loved ones on how to best meet these needs in a godly way.
