Overcoming the Tragic: Applying Biblical Narratives to Wellness

  • 08/28/2014
  • 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
  • Online

This webinar builds on a 12-week online program funded by the Fulbright Foundation and the John Templeton Foundation. It is designed to offer a Judeo-Christian biblical alternative to the Greek views of 1) relationship to the environment, 2) the relationship of self and other, 3) a view of human development as opposed to cyclical oscillation, 4) man and woman, 5) obedience and disobedience, 6) fathers and sons, 7) mothers and daughters, 8) sibling rivalry and its resolution, 9) the relationship between body and soul, 10) freedom, life and suicide, and 11) a hopeful vs. a tragic view of life. The biblical emphasis on hope, and the sense that people can and often do change, is offered as an alternative to the tragic cyclical view of the Greek narratives underlying much of modern mental health. The biblical narratives of Isaac, Ruth, Jonah and Adam and Eve are offered as an alternative to the Greek narratives of Oedipus, Electra, Narcissus, and Prometheus and Pandora.
