Treating religious fear & anxiety


Divorced: Christianity

Caleb W. Lack, Ph.D., is a Professor of Psychology at the University of Central Oklahoma. A licensed clinical psychologist, he is an award-winning educator and bestselling author of six books. He specializes in the treatment of children and adults with anxiety disorders and obsessive-compulsive and related disorders. Dr. Lack is the former director of the Secular Therapy Project, which aims to bring together non-religious persons seeking mental health treatment with secular, evidence-based providers. He spoke at the Conference on Religious Trauma in 2022 on the topic of Overcoming Fear of Hell.

In this episode, we touch on scrupulosity and fear of Hell, as well as how parents might unknowingly make anxiety issues worse for young children - and how they can stop.
