Current Volume: Volume 1 (2021) Inaugural Issue

Inaugural Issue

This special inaugural issue of Salubritas focuses on the role of the Holy Spirit in Counseling. Cultivated in partnership with the Behavioral Sciences faculty, this issue of Spiritus will also will serve to launch the new Counseling Journal. From the conceptualization of this avenue of scholarship, our purposes have been and remain as follows: (a) to build bridges among the various “Pentecostalisms” and advance the conversation about the nature of change in the Spirit-empowered world, (b) to build bridges between science and faith in scholarship, and (c) to understand better the integration of the Spirit into the change process to improve our counseling interventions.
