dc.description.abstractHistorically, the disciplines of psychology and theology have had a tenuous relationship, dismissing each other as unnecessary. This paper is an attempt to address this tenuous relationship, by stating that from a therapeutic outcomes perspective both psychology and theology can assist one another. I will focus on three common therapeutic outcomes – the importance of relationships, the essence of being and the role of community. Relationships will focus on encountering another whole person, and the beloved relationship between God and humankind. The essence of being and identity looks at the existential realities of life and the hope found within it. Lastly, the desire for authentic community has been compromised because of our individualistically based society. Challenging and changing social and political structures, re-orientating social relationships will help us to enter into authentic, life-giving communities.en_US
