Welcome! Christian Counseling Professionals of Chicagoland began in January 2011 with over 30 individuals from 17 Christian counseling agencies gathered at Meier Clinics of Wheaton. In this initial meeting, we discussed ways to collaborate and offer mutual training, marketing, and outreach projects. A Steering Committee was formed and meets faithfully each month to create objectives and goals as a unified group of believers.

Recap of April 2023 Conference
We enjoyed a full day of training at our annual CCPC conference from Dr. Mark Yarhouse of Wheaton College on “Gender Identity and Faith.” The discussion focused on navigating transgender issues in today’s changing culture, especially in a faith context. Attendees gained an understanding of the expanding terminology, as well as current controversies and considerations for counseling in conventional religious circles. It was a very beneficial and thought-provoking presentation and discussion.
Recap of January 2023 Conference
We enjoyed a half day of training at our January CCPC workshop from David Van Dyke, PhD, on “Successful Marriages and Families in the Midst of Post-Covid Challenges.” Dr. Van Dyke gave a very engaging and informative presentation, looking at numerous effects of Covid on marriages and families, both positive and negative. The discussion included a review of the biopsychosocial impacts of Covid on individuals, couples, and families, as well as practical clinical and personal skills. This workshop had a great response from all who attended.
