There is much talk today of the psichology of the Ignatian Exercises. It is said, in fact, that several of the indications offered by St. Ignatius in the annotations and additions of the Exercises are in profound accord with the finding of modern psychology. In 1989, an International Symposium on "Psychology and Ignatian Exercises" was held in Salamanca in Spain. To that Symposium the Author had sent a communication entitled: "The Spiritual Exercisesand personality change. Significance of a limit". The truth is that the spiritual process proposed by St. Ignatius in his Exercises is geared to the whole human person and , as such, ha to do directly with psychology. But there is more: the overall itinerary of the Exercises, which mobilizes all the human faculties of the retreatant and involves in a special way his/her affectivity, can be studied from a psychological standpoint as wwell as a specifically spiritual one. As a matter of fact, both these standpoints are harmoniously intervowen in a global and authentic understanding of the experienceof the Exercises. The Ignatian Exercises can be truly considered as a pathway of transformation of the human person. Not always and for everyone though; hence discussion of certain conditions and circumstances which may facilitate or impede such a journey. The present book, using contributions of depth-psychology, although briefly, addresses precisely these themes

This work begins with a discussion of problems of method and then surveys a number of areas of psychological researchto reach an initial idea of the psychological resources and liabilities which people typically have. There follows an organized outline of the ways in which such resources or liabilities may come to expression on each of the four levels of the subject's operations, as these are analysed Bernard Lonergan: experience, understanding, judgement, and decision. Then an analysis of the tension between human desire and human limitation provides a broader context within which the significance of temptation and conversion are examined. A clarification of the significance of specifically religious and Christian in moral theology is attempted. Finally, some implications on a more pratical level are explored.

Can psychology and religion engage in constructive dialogue ? Has psychology a contribution to make in Christian formation ? These are some of the issues addressed in this volume, marking 25 years of the Institute of Psychology of the Gregorian University. The twenty articles which make up the work offer essential insights into how psychology and religion can meet and interact constructively, at the level of theory and of practice. These insights are presented in the context of an overall Christian anthropology which continues to develop and to further refine its practical applications. The contributions are divided into four sections - theory and method, dialogue between psychology and other disciplines, applications in different cultures, and concrete experiences of applying a psychologically-informed Christian anthropology in the educational setting. The balanced approach presented in this work makes it both a serious instrument of study and a valuable point of reference for the educator. Its constant reference to a Christian conception of the person will help avoid short-sighted pragmatism.

This volume, prepared in honor of Samuel H. Osipow, a prominent teacher, researcher, author, and pioneer in vocational psychology, deals with significant theoretical and practical issues in the field of vocational psychology. As a state-of-the-art review of contemporary models of vocational psychology, this book will provide current and up-to-date coverage of the topics. It will also contain in-depth reviews of models of vocational psychology by leading scholars, including career decision making models, career self-efficacy, occupational stress, cross-cultural assessment of interests, and career counseling services within university systems. A major theme that runs throughout all chapters is the concept of change. This unifying theme is fitting since the authors have prepared their chapters in honor of Osipow, who has significantly changed the field over the last four decades. This volume should serve as a valuable resource for vocational psychology researchers, counseling graduate students, and career counselors. In addition to being a professional text, it should also be a useful supplement text for career development and career counseling courses in graduate programs of counseling, counseling psychology, and industrial/organizational psychology.
