Description
The mission of the Catholic psychotherapy Association is to support mental health practitioners by promoting the development of psychological theory and mental health practice which encompasses a full understanding of the human person, family, and society in fidelity to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church. This book is the third in a series by Deacon Ray Biersbach, Ph.D. to detail the links between the best empirically validated psychotherapy and Catholic anthropology. An issue for psychotherapists is how to form new members in competent praxis. The preparation for work as a psychotherapist takes too many years of postgraduate academic training and clinical supervision to allow additional academic or supervisory time. However, the vision of this book is that a combination of biblical parables and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) can provide a path to competent practice as well as spiritual and psychological discernment.
About the author
Ray Biersbach has a doctorate in psychology for counseling and practiced psychotherapy for 40 years before retiring to write about the links between psychotherapy and Catholic anthropology.
