Michelle Pearce, PhD, has designed a new book to be a practical guide to help mental health practitioners use religiously-integrated CBT and its seven specific religiously integrated CBT tools with their Christian clients for the treatment of depression. Given the intersection of this topic with the interests of Div. 36 members, Div. 36 encourages readers to review an excerpt from this new book available in the Society for Psychotherapy’s newsletter.
