Title
Slouching Toward Integration: Psychoanalysis and Religion in Dialogue
Abstract

This article traces the changing relationship between psychoanalysis and religion by paralleling it with the author'€™s own journey of faith and psychology. Contemporary psychoanalytic models (e.g. relational) have evolved, making psychoanalysis more accessible to psychotherapists as well as allowing more meaningful integration with religion. As Relational models have gained prominence, however, some of the gems from earlier models of analysis are in danger of being lost. A case is presented to demonstrate the challenge of not throwing out the "baby with the bathwater"€ as well as some of the particular difficulties religious therapists may have working with patients.
