About This Journal

Issues in Religion and Psychotherapy

Welcome to Issues in Religion and Psychotherapy Online! This peer-reviewed, professional journal (formerly known as The AMCAP Journal) is dedicated to the scholarly investigation of the interface between religion and mental health practice. Over 30 years of values-based professional writing, generated by members and friends of ALDSCAP (The Association of Latter-day Saint Counselors and Psychotherapists), is represented in this fully searchable online archive.

Since 1975, this journal has been a resource for ALDSCAP members and others interested in mental health insights, research, and techniques consistent with doctrine of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS). The journal contains articles reflective of ALDSCAP's "commitment to spiritual and professional excellence," and addresses a wide variety of clinical and psychological topics. Contents include ALDSCAP Convention talks, member research, theoretical papers, and General Authority writings.

Thanks to all the men and women who have contributed to this archive over nearly four decades. As this information is made available to a worldwide audience, may it nourish a whole new generation, and make an even broader difference for good in the decades to come.
