In this book, Joann Wolski Conn demonstrates how psychology and spirituality are integrally related to human maturity. Her book maintains that Christian spirituality, which encourages self-denial, can be entirely compatible with contemporary psychology which promotes self-fulfillment. Conn uses case studies in the practice of the ministries of pastoral counseling and spiritual direction, especially when these ministries deal woth her inner struggles of spiritual darkness and psychological depression. The author demonstrates the possibility of genuine experimental integration of Christian spirituality and contemporary psychology by paying equal attention to women's and men's experiences. Bringing her own perspective from ministry and feminist theology to a variety of case studies, she illustrates how pastoral counselors and spiritual dictators can enable those in their care to discern God's action in the ordinary events of life. Originally published in 1989 by Paulist Press.
Joann Wolski Conn is Professor of Counseling in the Graduate Program at Neumann College.
