Psychiatry and Religionargues that the divide between psychiatry and religion is an artificial one and that there is much room for understanding the same phenomena from different perspectives. Thirteen senior psychiatrists and pastoral workers have come together to explore what their different philosophies have to offer for the benefit of the individuals in their care. Together they are striving to set the relationship between psychiatry and religion in an historical context, provide detailed information about specific religions and the significance of their belief systems for mental health management, and examine the relationship between psychopathology, psychiatry and religion.
