The author looks to integrate religion into her psychiatric practice after finding a void in psychiatric literature in dealing with pain and suffering. She argues that understood as partners rather than as rivals, religion and psychology can combine the wisdom and vision of one with the knowledge and methodologies of the other. The integration of psychotherapeutic insights and skills with religious conviction and the life of the spirit offers new options and resources for practitioners in both fields as well as for their clients.
