Dr. Vitz’s teaching and research is focused on the integration of Christian theology, especially Catholic anthropology, with psychology. This requires breaking from the modern secularism and post-modern relativism prevalent today.
He is presently focused on the following special topics: The Psychology of Hatred and Forgiveness; The Psychology of the Virtues; The Psychological Importance of Fathers; and the Positive Relevance of Psychology for the Priesthood. Dr. Vitz’s books include: Psychology as Religion: The Cult of Self-Worship; Sigmund Freud’s Christian Unconscious; Modern Art and Modern Science: The Parallel Analysis of Vision; Faith of the Fatherless: The Psychology of Atheism; and The Self: Beyond the Post-modern Crisis.
He was Professor of Psychology at New York University for many years prior to joining the faculty at the Institute for the Psychological Sciences.
