The N.C.C.A. was “formally” founded in 1983 by Dr. Richard Arno. The N.C.C.A. has three primary goals or purposes:

  • To develop a biblically-based counseling model/technique that is relatively easy to learn and one that really works!
  • To develop a scientifically sound but biblically-based profiling system (method) that would identify a person’s very natural (inborn temperament) rather that his/her learned behavior (mask). N.C.C.A.’s counseling model is called Temperament Therapy.
  • To provide a National licensing program for persons who are called by God into the “Ministry of Counseling.”
