This article describes theoretical and empircal work that has been done during the past few decades to develop a theistic framework and approach for psychotherapy. It provides a brief summary of the reasons a theistic strategy for counseling and psychotherapy is needed, then explores its theological, philosophical, theoretical and empirical foundations. The article suggests future directions of theistic psychotherapy and invites Latter-day Saint professionals to join the effort to bring this framework and approach more fully into the therapeutic mainstream and into their own practices.
