This session we are learning about both psychological health and psychological dysfunction. Genesis 1:27 states, “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”
- What implications does the belief that we were created bearing the image of God have on our understanding of psychological health and psychopathology?

- What content did we learn in this course challenged you the most?
- How does studying psychology deepen your understanding of what it means to be created in the image of God? How can you apply this in your life?
