Front Cover
Hillfort Resources, 2001 - Counseling - 159 pages
This study argues for a constructive relationship between the disciples of Christian theology and psychology. It contrasts this view of Psychology as Complement to Theology with four other viewpoints: Psychology as Foe, Psychology as Support, Psychology as a Partner in Integration, and Psychology as Contaminant. Holds that when in dialogue the two disciplines provide a fuller account of human functioning than is offered by a single-discipline approach. This is illustrated and applied to three topics: self-esteem, pastoral counselling methods, and leadership in church and family. Includes diagrams, summaries, references and index. Author is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Psychology at the University of Sydney, and lectures in Pastoral Psychology at Moore Theological College, Sydney. Previous publications include 'Being Married' and 'Working with Premarital Couples'.
