Being Human

Jul 5, 2022

Welcome to Episode 81 of the Being Human Podcast: The Lies of the American Psychological Association

In this episode, Dr. Greg tackles the problematic stance taken by the American Psychological Association (APA) on abortion; he also breaks open why it’s important for Catholic mental health professionals to practice from a place of integration, why most psychology programs cannot provide that kind of education, and what CatholicPsych is doing to help. 

Discussed in this episode:

  • How politics have taken precedence over scientific fact when it comes to the APA’s stance on abortion; 
  • The validity and findings of scientific studies done about the mental health impact on women who have had an abortion; 
  • Why practicing as a mental health professional under the APA guidelines is becoming untenable; 
  • The importance of Catholic mental health professionals starting from a place of integration of psychology, theology, and anthropology;
  • Reasons why even Catholic psychology programs are forced to separate Catholic philosophy and theology from the teaching of psychology;
  • Announcement of the Open House to discuss CathoilcPsych’s new certification launching in the Fall of 2022.
