Weather you are a mental health practitioner with a Ph.D., Psy.D., or M.A. you exist to promote change and healing in the lives of your client. Psychiatrists, marriage and family therapists, social workers, counselors, etc. take different paths towards this one end. Classical anthropology first articulated by Aristotle and the peripatetic school and found its clearest expression in the scholastics, especially St Thomas Aquinas. By drawing on this ancient tradition we daily find insights to guide us in our work of healing and change.
