Title
The Role of Theology in the Training of Christian Psychologists
Abstract

Educators involved in the training of Christian psychologists need to develop a rationale for the role of theology in the curriculum that would be a meaningful apologetic for secular colleagues, the Christian public, and the psychology student. Using the example of Peter Abelard, a 12th century scholastic, the author suggests three major roles that theology can play in the training curriculum for Christian psychologists. The paper concludes with a brief description of current approaches to theology in the curriculum and a modest proposal for teaching theology creatively in the psychology training setting.
