We are excited to announce that Dr. John Cattich will be joining ACU’s Department of Marriage and Family Therapy in a post-doctoral position for the 2011-2012 academic year. Dr. Cattich has an M.Div. from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (1999), an MS in Marital and Family Therapy from Fuller Theological Seminary (2004), and a Ph.D. in Marital and Family Therapy from Loma Linda University (2010). Most recently, he has been working as an adjunct professor in the MA in Christian Counseling program at Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary in North Carolina, where he holds licensure as an MFT. Dr. Cattich’s research interests focus on the use of spiritual coping in therapy. He and Dr. Carmen Knudson-Martin recently published an article in the Journal of Marital and Family Therapy entitled Spirituality and Relationship: A Holistic Analysis of How Couples Cope with Diabetes. He has an article based on his dissertation under review by Pastoral Psychology entitled Three Models of Clergy Systems: An Analysis of Couple Processes and Spiritual Meaning. In his clinical work, he enjoys the integration of Bowen Family Systems and Internal Family Systems. As a supervisor, he states that he enjoys helping supervisees develop their “internal therapist.” Dr. Cattich will begin his work with us on August 1, and we look forward to welcoming him to Abilene and to our MFT family!
