A Guide to Orthodox Psychotherapy: The Science, Theology, and Spiritual Practice Behind It and Its Clinical Applications

   
Archbishop Chrysostomos
With a Foreword by Bishop Auxentios

“As Western Christianity and the Christian East seek to discover one another again today, small steps have been taken to elucidate the divergent ways in which Orthodox and Western Christians look at the human person and how these different anthropologies touch on the different ‘psychologies’ of the two populations. Here, in his Guide to Orthodox Psychotherapy, Archbishop Chrysostomos takes a giant leap forward in this endeavor, providing us with a concise study of the person and psyche from an Eastern Orthodox standpoint and a clear understanding of so-called Orthodox psychotherapy. The likelihood of his book broadening the burgeoning study of the nexus between spirituality and religious beliefs and practices and mental health is great. Its contribution to an appreciation of the importance of cultural and religious diversity in this area of research is immense.”
