Editorial Reviews

The shadow of Freud and his view of religion as illusion stilllooms over psychotherapy, making it problematic for therapists toengage their clients about a subject that can be of greatimportance and potential benefit. Because she is both a nun and aclinician, author Kehoe can draw on both her psychological andreligious training to approach with insight and sensitivity therole of belief and motivation in the lives of people troubled bymental illness. Neither illusion nor panacea, religious beliefhelps people organize their lives and make decisions. Kehoe haslistened for years to people with illness, and she shares theircompelling stories. She also discloses her own wrestling with innerreligious promptings and their influence in her own choices. Thisbook will be most helpful to other professionals in the field, butits honesty and humility also make it useful for anyone interestedin faith and mental illness, particularly anyone with an emotionalstake in the difficulties of mental illness.
