Feeling and Healing Your Emotions: A Christian Psychiatrist Shows You How to Grow to Wholeness
Understand Your Emotions Do you know what is meant by mental health? Do you merely cope with your emotions, or can you use them for your benefit? Are you sure you are leading your children to emotional maturity? Feeling and Healing Your Emotions offers guidelines for emotional and spiritual wholeness. In simple question-and-answer format, readers learn that all emotions are positive aspects of our nature and that a fully developed emotional life can strengthen one's spiritual life. Feeling and Healing Your Emotions shows how humanistic sychology often fails to treat the whole person by ignoring his spiritual dimension. Further, it shows how the Bible is perfectly consistent with a psychology that combines findings in modern clinical psychiatry with centuries-old Christian beliefs about the body, mind and spirit.
