Title
Psychopathology Through the Eyes of Faith: Integrative Reflections for the Classroom and Beyond
Abstract

We approach the study of psychopathology in these terms: “the study of the calamities of the soul,” by which we mean that students are learning how to assess, treat, and prevent concerns that affect the whole person, the embodied soul. Stated differently, something is lost in the study of psychopathology when we focus only on deviance, dysfunction, danger, or distress (i.e., the traditional understanding of abnormal behavior). Rather, we see the study of psychopathology as the emotional and psychological struggles of persons that affect all dimensions of human beings.
