Kate Finley, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, has received a $17,869 award from the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship Teacher-Scholar Grant Program. The project is titled Mental Disorder & Psychological Stability in Christian Churches.
This project will address the Christian views of mental disorder (e.g., depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, etc.), how these views are communicated through aspects of congregational life and church practice (i.e., sermons, corporate prayer, worship), and how these views can be challenged and informed by a more integrated, empirically-informed view of mental disorder.
Congratulations on your new award, Kate!
