JPT Celebrates 40 Years

Jun 20, 2012

Since its founding in 1968, Rosemead School of Psychology has focused on the integration of psychology and theology, seeking to raise up highly trained clinical psychologists who are also deeply rooted in a Christian perspective of their practice.  In line with this mission, Rosemead began publishing the Journal of Psychology and Theology in 1973, the first academic journal of its kind.  

According to the  Journal of Pyschology and Theology website, the purpose of JPT is "to communicate recent scholarly thinking on the interrelationships of psychological and theological concepts, and to consider the application of these concepts to a variety of professional settings. The major intent of the editor is to place before the evangelical community articles that have bearing on the nature of humankind from a biblical perspective."  

This year marks 40 years of promoting such valuable scholarly dialogue, with the discussion of integrating psychology and theology just as important today as it was when JPT was founded.  In honor of 40 years of faithful scholarship, the editors of JPT are publishing two special issues focusing on key topics surrounding integration today.  Read a free copy of the editor's introduction online here.
