  1. Daniel A. Helminiak (2010). "Theistic Psychology and Psychotherapy": A Theological and Scientific Critique. Zygon 45 (1):47-74.
    I take the APA publication A Spiritual Strategy for Counseling and Psychotherapy (Richards and Bergin 2005), along with a devoted issue of Journal of Psychology and Theology (Nelson and Slife 2006), as a paradigmatic example of a trend. Other instances include the uncritical use of "Eastern" philosophy in Humanistic and Transpersonal Psychology, almost normative appeal to the "Sacred" within the psychology of spirituality, talk of "God in the brain" within neurological research, the neologism entheogen referring to psychedelic drugs, and calls (...)

    Daniel A. Helminiak (2006). The Role of Spirituality in Formulating a Theory of the Psychology of Religion. Zygon 41 (1):197-224.

I challenge the psychology of religion to move beyond its merely descriptive status and, by focusing on spirituality as the essential dimension of religion, to approach the traditional ideal of science as explanation: a delineation of the necessary and sufficient to account for a phenomenon such as to articulate a general “law” relevant to every instance of the phenomenon. An explanatory psychology of spirituality would elucidate the scientific underpinnings of the psychology of religion as well as that of the (...)

    Daniel A. Helminiak (2011). Spirituality as an Explanatory and Normative Science: Applying Lonergan's Analysis of Intentional Consciousness to Relate Psychology and Theology. Heythrop Journal 52 (4):596-627.
    In a pluralistic society, consensus in spirituality must rest on a common human basis. The relevant social sciences as currently conceived cannot provide one.

Initially unpacking the complexities of (...)
