2019 Austin Harrington Counseling Lectures – The Science of Virtue


Speaker: Dr. Mark McMinn, Professor of Psychology and Faith Integration, George Fox University Graduate Department of Clinical Psychology

Topic: The Science of Virtue: Positive Psychology, Counseling, and the Church

The contemporary science of virtue, also known as positive psychology, opens new possibilities for the church, psychology, and counseling. Virtues that Christians have considered for centuries are now being explored in social science laboratories all over the world. But the problem is we aren’t talking much to one another. The science isn’t showing up in most churches and the Christian faith isn’t showing up in most social science laboratories and counseling offices. Dialogue between psychology, theology, and counseling can help build bridges that help both the church and the science. In this lecture series we will consider topics such as forgiveness, wisdom, gratitude, and humility.

  • Lecture 1: The Science of Virtue, and Why It Matters
  • Lecture 2: Wisdom and its Counseling Implications
  • Lecture 3: Gratitude and Grace
  • Lecture 4: Forgiveness and Humility

NOTE: No classes today.

Cost: Free for Covenant Seminary students, faculty, and staff. $15 per person for community/alumni guests.
