Wheaton College Counseling Center (WCCC) staff members are Christians who see their work as foundationally Christ-centered. Counseling is an activity endorsed by God to help people who are distressed, uncertain and hurting. It is a global practice required of the church at large and aimed at obeying the Scriptural mandate to "Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ" (Galatians 6:2).
Within this perspective, the WCCC integrates counseling techniques that are consistent with the Christian faith and empirical counseling research. The staff members at the WCCC are expected to adhere to the standards of professional ethics prescribed by Wheaton College and the APA/ACA codes of ethics.
