Bridging the Gap Between Mental Health & Religion

October 25th | Celebration Cinema North

A Discussion to Integrate and Understand Perspectives
Although theologians, researchers, pastors, and mental health professionals may study the same phenomena, their separate visions of that phenomena differ greatly due to the unique theories, language, and methodology in which they were trained. As a result, we may struggle to know how to benefit from each other’s work. With regard to theology and mental health, in particular, we may study similar elements of human suffering (as a theologian might understand it) or of stress, trauma, and even pathological symptomology (as a mental health professional might describe it). Both perspectives may have validity, but we still struggle to integrate them.
