Lecture 3 of 3
Video 5 of 6
of the 2013 Integration Symposium on Faith and Psychology
Thursday, Feb 14, 10am - 12pm Travis Auditorium
Evangelical patients often refer to conversion as a synonym for salvation. Hope-giving potential lies in the interpreting of conversion as a gradual transformation of investment from the original trauma to a redeployment of energies toward redemptive purposes. Evangelical patients who have experienced emotional healing can begin to experience areas of trauma as areas of strength that render them more exquisitely attuned. Attendees will be able to describe the psychological liabilities of a truncated understanding of conversion, to theoretically link the psychoanalytic concept of “transformation of trauma” to the redemptive concept of conversion, and apply the expanded understanding of conversion into psychotherapeutic work with struggling Evangelical Christians.
