Christianity and Psychoanalysis: Orienting View and Augmenting Modality

Marie T. Hoffman, Ph.D.

Much has been written about the influence of religious narratives on the lives and work of psychoanalytic theorists and clinicians. This article seeks to specifically extend an understanding of the Christian narrative into the clinical setting and examine the applicability and usefulness of its tenets and practices in treatment. The author will examine the unique way that Christian psychoanalysts might view their craft and their patients, and how the Christian faith might offer specific approaches based on a belief in the presence and influence of God in their work.
