WOF 310: Why Psychiatry Needs to Get Right with God

Modern psychiatry tends to downplay spirituality, but in today’s episode of “The Word on Fire Show,” Bishop Barron and Brandon discuss a new Scientific American article suggesting that “Psychiatry Needs to Get Right with God.”

The author explains how belief in God is associated with significantly better treatment outcomes for many patients, and therefore patients should have the option to include spirituality in their treatment. 

A listener asks, where does one go to get the Catholic Church’s official interpretation of Scripture?
