Founded and focused upon the integration of psychology and the Christian faith, and formed by the insights and hard labor of many dedicated scholars, clinicians, pastors, authors, and educators, Mark McMinn and Clark Campbell present a unique, ambitious, and modest integration model in Integrative Psychotherapy. This textbook provides both a theoretical and theological dimension of integrative psychotherapy that is rooted in Christian biblical and theological teaching and in a critical and constructive engagement with contemporary psychology. Their insights are thoroughly grounded in a biblical understanding of the human condition and of God's grace in Christ and calling on his people.
This foundational work integrates behavioral, cognitive, and interpersonal models of therapy within a Christian theological framework. Not only do McMinn and Campbell integrate Christian faith and spirituality with the latest thinking in behavioral science at a theoretical level, they also integrate the theoretical and academic with the pastoral and clinical, offering a practical guide for the practitioner. For thoughtful Christian counselors, psychologists, scholars, and seminarians, Integrative Psychotherapy is an indispensable and inspiring resource.

Integrative Psychotherapy is an example of integration at its finest. The book provides one of the first systematic theoretical models for Christian psychotherapy and the closest to a comprehensive Christian approach that has yet been written. It is easy to read and practical without sacrificing a more nuanced understanding of the complex relationship between Christianity and psychology. It is aimed at a broad intellectual audience, both students in undergraduate and graduate programs of psychology, including pastoral counseling as well as professional counselors, therapists and psychologists.

"Inviting and inspiring, Integrative Psychotherapy is a must-read for thoughtful Christian therapists. McMinn and Campbell offer a theoretically rich and theologically grounded model. It reflects the combined wisdom of their decades of listening to real people, digesting psychological science, studying theology and living out the Christian faith. Rich in theory and practice, this book will positively and powerfully reshape our approach to integrative psychotherapy."
—Charlotte vanOyen Witvliet, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Psychology, Hope College
"Integrative Psychotherapy by McMinn and Campbell is a substantial work that integrates behavioral, cognitive and interpersonal models of therapy within a Christian theological framework. While I do not agree with some of its conclusions (e.g., not integrating spiritual direction with integrative psychotherapy), I highly recommend it as essential reading."
—Siang-Yang Tan, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Fuller Theological Seminary
"As a professional association, CAPS has spent over fifty years deeply invested in seeing the highest quality work in the field of integration brought to light. Not only do McMinn and Campbell integrate Christian faith and spirituality with the latest thinking in behavioral science at a theoretical level, they also integrate the theoretical and academic with the pastoral and clinical. The publication of Integrative Psychotherapy as the lead volume in partnership with IVP demonstrates our mutual commitment to producing leading-edge integration work that advances theory and application to a broad intellectual audience."
—Paul S. Regan, Executive Director, Christian Association for Psychological Studies, Inc.
"While everyone talks about integration, McMinn and Campbell actually do it. Their book is easy to read and practical without sacrificing a more nuanced understanding of the complex relationship between Christianity and psychology. Integrative Psychotherapy is an example of integration at its finest.
McMinn and Campbell demonstrate how thinking and relating are reflections of God's love for his creation. They incorporate traditional treatments offered by cognitive and interpersonal therapy yet go beyond by emphasizing the redemptive quality of a therapeutic relationship. If you're looking for a model of counseling informed by advances in modern psychology while honoring the rich tradition of the Christian faith—this is it!"
—Brandy Liebscher, Psy.D., Assistant Professor of Psychology, Simpson University
"McMinn and Campbell bring over fifty collective years of psychological, psychotherapeutic and Christian experience to bear on Christian psychotherapy. It was worth the wait! Drawing on the best clinical science, Integrative Psychotherapy is perhaps the closest to a comprehensive Christian approach that has yet been written. This compassionate psychotherapy will surely become a classic."
—Everett L. Worthington Jr., author of Forgiving and Reconciling
"These well-respected authors have given Christian therapists a useful example of how to integrate faith and work in the clinic office. Their model is especially valuable because it reflects an appreciation for the different levels on which human struggles occur and for the need to adapt our interventions accordingly. McMinn and Campbell have produced a good integration of good psychology and good theology."
—James R. Beck, Ph.D., Senior Professor of Counseling, Denver Seminary, Littleton, Colorado
