Faith is good for you

From the Wiley blurb:
Description

While Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an empirically-supported treatment, many behavioral and analytical psychotherapists also recognize the healing potential of religious belief. CBT and Christianity offers CBT therapists an authoritative, practical, and comprehensive resource for counseling clients with an allegiance to the Christian faith. This innovative new treatment approach compares the teachings of Jesus to contemporary cognitive therapies, describing a variety of successful assessment and treatment approaches with Christian clients by incorporating the teachings of Jesus into logical thinking, schema modification, and committed behavior change. Clarity is further enhanced through a variety of specific examples, descriptions of generic methods, and supplemental resources provided by the author. By combining effective treatments with sensitivity to religious convictions, CBT and Christianity offers innovative insights into the spiritual and psychological well-being of clients with Christian beliefs.

Now what about UFO/lizard people/conspiracy believers? They deserve to be healed too! :HoppingMad:

They probably supported facilitated communication, Bettleheim's torture of autistic children, and the hip hop.

This innovative new treatment approach compares the teachings of Jesus Like the one where he denies salvation to good men who seek it, who predicted the end of the world in his immediate followers lifetime, his reveling in the death of pregnant women, do tell! to contemporary cognitive therapies which do not actually work either, blah blah blah fuck the Jews.
