Arlington, Virginia -- A new blog series in the national
publication Psychology Today has invited participation from three
distinguished faculty members from the Institute for Psychological Sciences
These faculty members will be providing the “Catholic”
perspective on how faith is integrated with their approach to
psychotherapy. Participants include IPS Founder and Academic Dean
Gladys M. Sweeney, Ph.D., founding faculty member and Chairman
of the Psychology Department William J. Nordling, Ph.D., and Director
of Integrative Studies Craig S. Titus, S.T.D. and Ph.D.
Throughout the blog series, called The Varieties of
Religious Therapies, host Ryan Howes Ph.D., invites 14 therapists
and researchers to respond to seven questions about how their
faith informs their approach to psychotherapy. Invited therapists
were selected as those “who write, teach and practice
in accordance with their belief system.”
“We are grateful to Dr.
Howes and Psychology Today for approaching IPS to represent the
Catholic perspective in his new blog. It speaks
volumes about the respect IPS has garnered in psychological circles,”
said Dr. Sweeney.
