RIBEIRO, Jorge Ponciano. Reflections about the role of a Psychology of Religion. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2008, vol.14, n.2, pp. 197-204. ISSN 1809-6867.

The present work studies the Psychology of Religion as a theme to be understood from the concept of totality. It discusses the issue of the nature of religion, psychology and the relationship between both. It approaches the human conflicts from their connection with nature, and, above all, with God. As a possible path of a creative and healthy adjustment, faith fills a special position establishing the relationship between psychology, religion and the human person. The nature of the soul and the psychological struggles bring up a central issue: what is the role of the Religion Psychologist facing the human angst caused by guilt, by the loss of meaning of God in the human existence or up to what theoretical point does the Psychology of Religion oppose the clinical practice where the silent presence of the hallowed in human conflicts become apparent while being ignored at the exercise of our profession.
