Male and female psychology
Religion and psychology. My greatest interest for the moment is to study the impact of faith on the psychological make up of a person. My viewpoint is psychoanalytical and Christian but this does not mean that I exclude other beliefs. Rather, I would like to study them too. For the moment I am studying the psychological changes that occur during prayer. I do this with two categories of people: (1) Praying people who are in therapy with me and whom I do not give any suggestions for prayer; and (2) People whom I follow as a spiritual companion and whom I do give suggestion for prayer.
