The Reconciled Life: A Critical Theory of Counseling

Coperta unu
Greenwood Publishing Group, 1997 - 267 pagini

Using a method of critical correlation, the author recommends an interaction between clinical psychology and liberal theology which preserves their unique sources, methodologies, and content, while engaging in a mutually enriching dialogue. This work illustrates a constructive interaction between these disciplines by applying the concept of reconciliation derived from the Judeo-Christian tradition as a foundation for a normative and empirical theory of psychotherapy. Linguistic and phenomenological analyses of the cognitive, affective, behavioral, and conative dimensions provide an understanding of the experience of reconciliation compatible with the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth.
