Christianity, psychology topic for symposium
March 10, 2010
Bryan Institute Director Dr. Daryl Charles said, “No period has brimmed with theoretical explanations of human nature, with all its complexities, as the century just behind us. Nearly a decade into the 21st century some social critics would cite the existence of over 250 schools of psychological method that are identifiable.”
In the past 20 years, practitioners have debated what model/view is most distinctly “Christian” and how best to put that view into practice. Does Christian faith simply augment the work of counseling in contemporary psychology? Does psychological research confirm scriptural truth, or vice versa? Or, should the study of human nature result in the transformation of the person into the image of Christ, with dependence on the Holy Spirit? Moreover, what does the explosion of brain research and genetics portend for both the theoretician and the clinical practitioner?
Speakers for this symposium include Drs. Warren S. Brown, Jr., John Coe, Eric Johnson, Stanton Jones, David Powlison, and Paul Watson.
All seminars are free and will be held in Rudd Auditorium. For professional clinicians 6.5 CE credits are being offered through the Christian Association for Psychological Studies for a nominal fee. For more information, call 423.775.7265.
