Richmont Faculty Publish Article on Attachment and Spiritual Formation

Richmont Graduate University faculty members Daniel Sartor, Ph.D.; Cara Cochran, Ph.D.; Amanda Blackburn, Psy.D.; Mary Plisco, Psy.D.; and Jama White, Psy.D. published an article titled “The Role of Attachment in Spiritual Formation at Richmont Graduate University.” The article is featured in the latest edition of The Journal of Spiritual Formation and Soul Care, a publication of the Institute of Spiritual Formation at Biola University.

The article describes the model of how Richmont provides spiritual formation training in its counseling programs. “This model of spiritual formation has a dual foundation which includes the centrality of love to the Christian life and the importance of attachment to the development of persons. The training is intentionally designed to invite students to pursue a more secure attachment to God, healthier relationships with others, and a more grace-based self-awareness.”

You can access the article via the Journal of Spiritual Formation and Soul Care website: Link to Article
