God In Therapy Interview on PsychCentral.com
Since I work with so many religious clients I was delightful to participate in this interview on the topic of God in Therapy with CR & Richard Zwolinski, LMHC, CASAC who host the Therapy Soup Blog. Here’s the first Q & A in the interview titled “God in Therapy: Songwriter & Psychotherapist Julie Hanks Shatters Stereotypes.”
Q: “Weâ€™re the first to say our own viewÂ may be somewhatÂ limited due to lack of exposure and we donâ€™t want to fall guilty of stereotyping, so can you reflect a bit on Mormon culture in general?
A: Unfortunately, much of the media coverage on â€œMormonâ€ extremists, like Warren Jeffs for example, arenâ€™t actually even Mormon and in no way represent Mormon culture or lifestyle.
Most practicing Mormonâ€™s are fiercely dedicated to taking care of their families. They also generously donate time and resources, are conscientious community members, and genuinely trying to make the world better.”
