Dr. Craig Titus is Professor and Director of the Department of Integrative Studies at Divine Mercy University. Dr. Titus also serves as Director of the Newman Lecture Series and Editor for the DMU Press.
Dr. Craig Titus’ lecture, “A Vocation-Virtue Tandem: A Meta-Model for Mental Health and Spiritual Flourishing,” seeks to address two questions. First, how does making explicit the religious, philosophical, and psychological presuppositions in a meta-modal of the person serve mental health practice and spiritual flourishing? Second, what benefits come from the interplay of two premises, one that is familiar (that “virtues lead to a flourishing life”) and one that is less familiar (that “vocations lead to a flourishing life”)? Focusing on the interdependence of vocations and virtues, the lecture will address the benefits that a Catholic Christian meta-model offers for understanding the mental health and spiritual flourishing of the person and his or her interpersonal relationships in an integrated approach.
