Dr. Carole Bohn has been a member of the School of Theology faculty teaching courses in pastoral care and counseling since 1980. From 1989 through 2003 she served as the Director of the Danielsen Institute, a licensed mental health clinic and pastoral counseling center which was founded at the School of Theology in 1952 and is now a nationally and internationally renowned center for the teaching of integration of spirituality and religious issues with mental health counseling. During Dr. Bohn’s fourteen years as director, the Institute added three new training programs, grew into new space, increased full-time staff, and grew to serving more than 500 clients each year. With a grant from the Wabash foundation, Dr. Bohn hosted a conference to bring together scholars woking in the field of integration, but from a range of theoretical perspectives.

Dr. Bohn works in the areas of pastoral psychology, developmental psychology, faith development, feminist psychology and health psychology. She co-edited (with Joanne Brown) Christianity, Patriarchy and Abuse, and edited Therapeutic Practice in a Cross-Cultural World. Her research interests include the impact of violence and abuse on psychological development, integration of spirituality with various types of mental health treatment, including current work on a social anxiety treatment program, and collaborative work on the development of integrated treatment in an international context, specifically working with colleagues in Romania.

With Dr. Bohn’s return to the School of Theology as a full-time faculty member, she has also taken on the role of training director for the PhD program in counseling psychology and religions housed in the Division of Religious and Theological Studies. She teaches courses in psychotherapy, social identity and oppression, ethics, history of psychology and serves as advisor to many STH students, particularly providing leadership of the dual degree programs with the School of Social Work. In addition, she continues to provide supervision and seminar leadership at the Danielsen Institute.
