A New Concept for Christian Counseling
Developed by Dr. Richard Arno, President and Dr. Phyllis Arno, Executive Vice President of the Sarasota Academy of Christian Counseling in Sarasota, Florida
“We are fearfully and wonderfully made by our God who created the heavens and the earth, and we are very special and unique. Creation Therapy is the key that will give you a better understanding of this uniqueness. It will help you to understand why people do the things they do and act the way they act.” ~ Dr. Richard Arno
Creation Therapy is a new approach to counseling that deals with the inner man rather than outer manifestations or problems. Creation Therapy will teach you how to identify the “hidden” problems…
Developed Through Research
Temperament counseling is method based on the belief that man is a uniquely created being rather than the result of an evolutionary process. This method was developed during seven years of research involving five thousand (5,000) individuals who were seeking help for their problems. Conclusions based on research are that Temperament Counseling is over ninety percent (90%) successful when administered by a person who has been trained in this counseling technique.
Why Temperament Counseling Works
Using the Personal Temperament Profile of the client, the counselor follows a step-by-step procedure developed to “target” the source of the problem(s). Learn what causes relationship conflicts and how to resolve them. Learn the secrets of human behavior and how God’s wonderful plan works when understood and applied.
