Valerie DeMarinis unabashedly argues that the use of religions, beliefs, symbols, and rituals-as well as other resources of the community of faith-are crucial for the therapeutic encounter is pastoral psychotherapy. Balancing 'careful judgment' and 'appropriate concern,' DeMarinis constructs a feminist methodology of critical caring. Synthesizing her theoretical model from the fields of pastoral theology, feminist hermeneutics, and the psychology of religion, DeMarinis then demonstrates its clinical application using four case studies of women in different phases of the life cycle.
