– Father, what is your view on the Orthodox psychology?
– Psychologists’ capabilities are limited as they work using their own reasoning. And our reasoning is also limited. What is the difference between a psychologist and an elder? An elder receives a revelation from God and speaks on His behalf. A psychologist also uses a tool given by God – his or her logic and builds psychological constructions to help people. Nevertheless, their possibilities are significantly reduced.
