Psychic Wholeness and Healing, Second Edition
Using All the Powers of the Human Psyche
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"An exploration of man's psyche, integrated with his spiritual dimension. Essentially this book integrates modern psychological discoveries with the psychology of St. Thomas Aquinas. Dr. Terruwe and Dr. Baars take a refreshing look at the human person and healing from a Christian perspective, something that the secular humanistic and scientific views of man fail to take into account. The reader is given an understanding of many of the repressive disorders, which include symptoms such as fear, anxiety, depression, irritability, anger, fatigue, scrupulosity, and obsessive-compulsive symptoms. The repressive process, the different types of repressive disorders and their appropriate treatment are discussed. Clinical cases underscore the concepts in this book, bringing the reader an understanding of the freedom available through the healing of these emotional disorders and hope for those afflicted. This book is geared for a wide audience--laypersons, mental health professionals, and those involved in Christian ministry and the moral formation of others. It includes the English translation of Dr. Terruwe's thesis on the human person's normal emotional, spiritual, and intellectual life."
