How are Psychological Disorders Perceived and Addressed in Psychological Settings vs. Religious Communities?
While Christian societies have matured since this time period, a stigma against psychological disorders still remains within the community whether it can be attributed to a fundamental lack of understanding or longstanding stereotypes (against the victims of the disorders or the predominantly secular therapists who treat them) which haven't completely disappeared. From a different perspective, it is also necessary to learn and understand the ways in which a religious framework judges mental illness in order to gain knowledge of how to properly treat a patient who resides within that type of community.
