Title
Integration Training in the Seminary Crucible
Abstract

Training mental health professionals in the seminary context provides the educator with several important challenges. Students must first be trained in addressing four specific audiences, each of which will have different expectations of the graduate. Students must also be given skill acquisition in four specific areas that are central to the seminary environment: a good working knowledge of hermeneutics, sound theological reasoning, ability to use psychological literature well, and an awareness of the vast sweep of church history. Seminary graduates who enter the Christian mental health professions with this type of educational background can thus make some unique and focused contributions to the ongoing integration enterprise.
