Course Fee: $19.95
Access: Course is available for 30 days after registration
Series Description: Psy.D. Colloquia
The Psy.D. Colloquium series from the School of Psychology and Counseling's Doctorate Psychology colloquia events provides a selection of courses from outstanding professionals and scientists in psychology and related fields. Speakers in these courses have addressed a wide range of topics, from marital work with difficult couples to evolving roles for psychology in health care.
Course Description:This course will review the integration of psychology and Christian faith with a focus on science. The integration view attempts to bring together the truths of psychological science with the truths of the Christian faith in a coherent way. The "integration" view proposes that Christian faith fundamentally shapes the Christian psychologist’s engagement with the science and profession of psychology. By contrast the "levels of explanation" view use one means of scholarship as a way to build an explanation of phenomenon with a hierarchy of truths. The Christian faith interfaces with psychology in a way that shapes how Christian psychologists then engage with the science and application of psychology. This course will describe integration as "recursive process" and discuss the common elements of this recursive process and the ultimate ground of authority in human knowing for the integrationist psychologist.
Psychologists, Community Counselors, School Counselors, Civic Workers, and Doctoral Psychology Students
This course is designed to help you:

- Articulate the implications of the difference for how Christian faith is construed to interface with psychology.
- Describe how the Integrationist views the influence of Christian belief on psychology without being drawn to the conclusion of a specific Christian or Biblical psychology.
