Seminar 3: Mental Health and Wellbeing from a Theological Perspective
The Seeking Truth seminars have been designed to stimulate discussion, highlight global perspectives and bring an alertness and voice to women’s experience of the Church. Seminar three focuses on Mental Health and Wellbeing from a Theological Perspective with Jessica Coblentz.
You can join us onsite at the Loreto Normanhurst Curran Theatre or online via Livestream.
Our guest speaker, Jessica Coblentz, is an assistant professor in the Department of Religious Studies and Theology at Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Indiana (USA), where her teaching and research focus on Catholic systematic theology, feminist theologies, and mental health in theological perspective. She is the author of Dust in the Blood: A Theology of Life with Depression, and the co-editor of The Human in a Dehumanizing World: Reexamining Theological Anthropology and Its Implications, both published earlier this year. In addition to her contributions to numerous academic journals and essay collections, her writing has been featured in popular venues such the National Catholic Reporter, US Catholic, America, and Give Us This Day, where she is a regular contributor. Before working as a theologian, Coblentz served for several years in Roman Catholic national and diocesan religious education, parish young adult ministry, and college campus ministry. She earned her PhD in systematic theology from Boston College.
