The dynamics of healing psychological and spiritual wounds
Linda J Robinson
This work explores the dynamics in psychological and spiritual healing by tracing the case histories of two individuals over a 60 year life span. The cases are reviewed along four parameters that define basic conditions needed for a human being to be well and to thrive: i.e., connection, identity, freedom, and power; and from three perspectives: family systems using Edwin Friedman's work, individual psychology using Karen Horney's work, and spiritual theology using Ignatius of Loyola's Spiritual Exercises. Both case studies show a set of common dynamics and "healing agents," and implications are drawn for the practice of pastoral care.
