Course Introduction

This course involves a critical and reflective investigation of psychological approaches and findings to the understanding of religious beliefs, values and practices; it addresses questions of whether and how psychology can contribute to deeper insight into the nature of religion and more specifically the nature of religious or irreligious states of mind and experience; the implications of such understandings for clinical, educational, and pastoral contexts are also explored; supervision available for research.
