308 A Developmental Approach to Counseling - II

Because he is viewed as the father of modern psychology, serious students of counseling need to be familiar with the teachings of Sigmund Freud. Much of what Freud taught is not supported by the Bible nor has it been supported by subsequent research. However, he is the one who gave scientific respectability to the Biblical idea of an evil unconscious mind (Jer. 17:9). The other theorist looked at in this lesson is Erik Erikson whose ideas are much more compatible with Scripture. I still find his Eight Ages of Man to be very helpful in discerning the counselee's emotional and spiritual level of maturity.
