TC Psychology Roundtable: The Psychological Impact of Spirituality

November 27 - TC Psychology Roundtable: The Psychological Impact of Spirituality
In 1968, the cover of Time magazine asked if God was dead. Today, a growing number of Americans practice some form of spirituality, often linked to physical practices such as yoga and meditation. In psychology, too, spirituality and faith have become central areas of focus. How, precisely, does spirituality help people? What are its physical effects on the brain? And what does it mean to acknowledge spirituality in psychology research and practice? These and other questions will be debated by a distinguished panel that includes TC faculty members Lisa Miller, Associate Professor of Psychology and Education; Suniya S. Luthar, Professor of Psychology and Education; John Allegrante, Deputy Provost and Professor of Health Education; and clinicians  Dale Atkins  (M.S. '72) and  Betsy Schur Levy  (Ph.D. '89).

Hosted by:
