A Survey Of Ethics Training In Undergraduate Psychology Programs At Jesuit Universities, Thomas G. Plante, Selena Pistoresi

Psychology

Training in ethics is fundamental in higher education among both faith-based and secular colleges and universities, regardless of one’s academic major or field of study. Catholic colleges and universities have included moral philosophy, theology, and applied ethics in their undergraduate curricula for generations. The purpose of this investigation was to determine what, if anything, Jesuit college psychology departments are doing to educate psychology majors regarding ethical issues. A survey method was used to assess the psychology departments of all 28 Jesuits colleges and universities in the United States. A total of 21 of the 28 schools responded and completed ...

Sex, Drugs And Alcohol: What Adventist College Students Say About The Role Of Parents And Religion, Alina Baltazar, Duane C. McBride, Curtis J. VanderWaal, Kathryn Conopio 2017 Andrews University

Sex, Drugs And Alcohol: What Adventist College Students Say About The Role Of Parents And Religion, Alina Baltazar, Duane C. Mcbride, Curtis J. Vanderwaal, Kathryn Conopio

Curtis VanderWaal

Relationships with peers, parents, and God make a difference in the behavior choices of youth. If a young person spends time with peers who don’t use substances and are planning to wait until they get married to have sex, they are less likely to engage in these behaviors. In addition, if the youth has a close relationship with parents who clearly state their standards regarding substance use and premarital sex, they are less likely to practice these behaviors. Finally, when the young person has a close relationship with God, they are more likely to care about the religious standards ...

The Communication Of Limits: Christ, The Communicatio Idiomatum, And The Identity Of People With Disabilities, Kendrick Barnes 2017 Seattle Pacific University

The Communication Of Limits: Christ, The Communicatio Idiomatum, And The Identity Of People With Disabilities, Kendrick Barnes

Seattle Pacific Seminary Theses

Disability scholars often speak to the identity of people with disabilities. The communicatio idiomatum, as understood by the early church fathers, suggests that Christ took on everything that it means to be human. This thesis argues that when Christ took on the limits of humanity, he identified with people with disabilities. This assumption of limits presents a model for the church catholic, specifically, for how the church conceives of and does ministry to and with people with disabilities.


Spiritual Formation: A Model To Strengthen The Mission, Operation, And Commitment Of African American Churches, Anthony Bailey 2017 Liberty University

Spiritual Formation: A Model To Strengthen The Mission, Operation, And Commitment Of African American Churches, Anthony Bailey

Doctoral Dissertations and Projects

Spiritual formation, the practice of intentional spiritual disciplines like fasting, silence, studying, and fellowship, should be the heart of growth in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina small churches. This practice assists congregants in developing closeness with God and relationships with others. Amidst a steady decline in national church attendance since 1992, few of today’s African-American Church ministries address the need for spiritual formation. This thesis explores this critical issue at the local level through interviews with pastors and church leaders, who describe their churches’ current efforts to foster spiritual formation in congregants. The findings are used to propose a model for ...


The Church Is Familial And Is Built On Spiritually Strong Families, Yat Lau 2017 Liberty University

The Church Is Familial And Is Built On Spiritually Strong Families, Yat Lau

Doctoral Dissertations and Projects

Christ’s headship of the church has strong parallels to the husband’s headship of the family unit. As postmodernism, socio-economic factors, egalitarianism, globalization and shifts in the communicational processes drive inter-generational issues to greater heights, insidiously tear families apart—relationally, intellectually and spiritually. On the other hand, the church models the world through its discipleship programs, organization structures and has asserted itself as the spiritual head of the home. This paper will survey Christian young adults to identify key influences on their spiritual formation and family ministries the church provide to support families. The paper will provide a critique ...
