Title
Embodied Integration
Abstract

Approaches to the integration of psychology and Christian theology in a college classroom often focus on the cognitive component. “Embodied integration” refers to the idea that bodily states precede and inform cognition and thus are an integral part of the process of integration. Three pedagogical examples are described that include features of an embodied integration approach: physiological arousal, moving from specific cases to general ones, moving from concrete examples to abstract ones, and cognitive dissonance. The role of embodiment as an approach to theology and the overall implications of this approach to pedagogy are discussed.
