abstract | view |  rights & permissions
The present study deals with a case of major depression and how that condition affected an individual’s life. In this case-study, major depression is approached to the paradigm of cognitive-behavioural therapy in terms of the event behind the condition, the irrational thinking following the event, the emotions associated to that thinking, the behaviours selected so that thoughts and emotions to be maintained. There are also discussed, the maintenance cycle between thoughts and emotions as well as the consequences referred to that individual’s choices of behaviour as to negatively reinforcing herself in staying to the condition and not doing anything to fight it back. In order that major depression to be effectively dealt with, there are suggested interventions so that the individual to be positively reinforced in changing her cognitions, emotions and behaviours. Interventions which were agreed with the client were cognitive restructuring as to changing assumptions of faulty cognitive thinking; changes in the feelings domain so that unwanted emotions to be driven out of her mind; changes in the behavioural domain so that to gaining back self-confidence and building up healthy interrelationships.

George Varvatsoulias Pastoral Psychology in Greece: The Case of Professor Ioannis Kornarakis.
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
have decided to write this paper for the late Professor Ioannis Kornarakis mainly for two reasons: (1) Professor Kornarakis was the first to attempt an interdisciplinary preoccupation between the branch of Patristics and Modern Psychology; (2) Because he worked on this interdisciplinary perspective with innovation and creativity. For Professor Kornarakis’s work what is worth to be mentioned, above all, is that it was a struggle and an effort towards an unusual project: that of seeing the writings of the Church Fathers and of Scriptures in ways which could be relevant to modern human problematism so that a fruitful understanding to be attained, as to what we can do with them on a personal, interpersonal and social level. Though Professor Kornarakis did not use the empirical method in his scientific research - observation-hypothesis-experiment-support, or refutation, of ideas tested-replication of the study conducted, etc. - he came across very important insights as to the human condition, that even today can elicit discussions as to the salience of his endeavours for modern pastoral psychologists.In this theoretical paper, what I am doing is to refer to Professor Kornarakis’s work historically and systematically. Historically, in terms of the development of it, since its inception, in the theological literature; systematically, in terms of the presentation of it in relation to the main ideas this was based upon. The historical preoccupation with Kornarakis’s work is being exhausted in the realm of an interview I conducted of him, when I was collecting information relevant to what he wrote, discussed and envisaged as to the association between Patristics and Psychology. The systematic preoccupation with Kornarakis’s work refers to the content and context his works were conceptualized and composed.Through both these perspectives -the historical and the systematic- Kornarakis’s work is actually put in the framework it belongs to, which is that of the theoretical foundations needed for the construction of a mode of thought in the pastoral understanding of the writings of the Fathers, and those of the Bible, in relation to what modern psychology studies in detail. Kornarakis’s work can be exhausted in terms of its chronological framework; however, it can also appear inexhaustible as to the kind of contingencies one can find in it, which are both situation-driven and hermeneutically-specific. Situationdriven, for they refer to events the modern man is bothered by; hermeneutically-specific, for they refer to issues, the exegesis of which can help the modern man’s condition to be improved.

Christos Terezis, Lydia Petridou Ontological and Gnoseological Questions in Gregory Palamas according to the Christian Theory on Unions and Distinctions
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
In the present study, we are discussing the actually quite important matter for the theology of the Eastern Christianity on the real existence of the divine energies and their relation to the divine essence. Following Gregory Palamas’ treatise entitled Περί θείας ἑνώσεως και διακρίσεως we attempt to approach his theory on unions and distinctions, which proves just the two ways in which God exists. In the gnoseological level, we are discussing how affirmative, apophatic and superlative theologies are combined, in order to become clear that God is totally unknown as to his essence, but, up to a certain point, knowable as to the projections of his energies. Our main goal is to show that Gregory Palamas is absolutely consistent with the previous Christian tradition.

Goran D. Mladenović The Synthesis of Royal and Messianic Verses in Psalm 143: A Psalm of David [MT: Psalm 144]
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
A Psalter consists of a number of royal and messianic psalms which should not be separated from each other. Their poetic structure is very similar, but their content is different. Except for the structure which is characteristic of the songs with the royal theme, Psalm 143 mentions the golden age of peace and plenty and simultaneously directs readers’ attention towards the coming of the new David-Messiah. The narrator takes on the role of the prayer representing his people, praying for the victory on the eve of a decisive battle.
