Integration of Theology and Psychology

CAPS Logo 2000.jpg

"Integration" means a lot of different things (Try doing a Google search on the word) depending on whether you're into sociology, technology, or another "-ology." For me, it's about integrating theology with psychology. I'm a Southwest Region Board member of the Christian Association for Psychological Studies (CAPS) which seeks to explore this integration. I also work at Dallas Theological Seminary where eleven professors developed a "Statement of Belief" a few years ago. I like the statement that we seek "to address life and ministry from a theological perspective that is controlled by Scripture, consistent with evangelical Christian tradition, and critically conversant with contemporary psychology."
