A Matter of Faith
Torah view of Suffering


Shrink or Rebbe?
MP3 lecture by Reb Avraham Greenbaum
The roots of modern secular psychotherapy can be traced to the ancient Torah pathway of confession to a Tzaddik (the Sage). As we advance into an uncertain future, therapists should reconsider contemporary assumptions about mental health care and apply teachings of Chassidut in order to enhance the service they provide to their clients.
Lecture given on 26 Marcheshvan 5770 / 13 Nov '09 at Toronto Lodzer Centre under the auspices of the
