Winifred E. Weter Lectures
Psychotherapy as a field has never had a conscience. This condition creates two complications. First, the profession is unable to assert directions for its own growth and instead reacts to sociocultural developments. Second, psychotherapy is unprepared to deal with the tremendous influence that research says the process has in clients' lives. Operating with a conscience is desirable, since this capability would allow the profession to serve its clientele and itself more effectively. Christian thought provides indispensable perspective and insight for addressing these dilemmas.
