Deadline NOW: Kenneth Pargament
Friday, March 20, 2009
For more than 30 years, Bowling Green State University Psychology Professor Kenneth Pargament has been studying the connection between religion and mental health. Only in recent years has there been a growing awareness and understanding among Pargament's mental health colleagues of the impact -- for better or worse -- that spirituality can have on patients. Pargament's most recent book, Spiritually Intergrated Psychotherapy: Understanding and Addressing the Sacred, published by Guilford Press, explores the topic.
