Baylor University's department of psychology and neuroscience will sponsor the Psychology and Faith Lecture at 9 a.m. Tuesday, March 2, in the fifth floor conference room of the Cashion building on the Baylor campus. Dr. Winston Gooden, dean of the Fuller Seminary School of Psychology and associate pastor of First AME Zion Church in Pasadena, Calif., will speak on the topic of diversity.

Gooden, who grew up in Jamaica, received his master's and doctoral degrees from Yale University. He is known for his research on mid-life transitions, shame, and the spiritual and emotional development of African-American men. "I see a great need for men and women of character - therapists and scholars - to be committed to the study of the role of faith in emotional and physical health," Gooden said.

Richard J. Mouw, president of Fuller Theological Seminary, said Gooden is an outstanding professional and gifted teacher. "He has a strong vision for the integration of psychology and theology, and he cares deeply about bringing healing and justice to wounded individuals and broken relationships."

The lecture is free and open to the public. To make reservations or for more information, contact Judy Mills in the department of psychology and neuroscience at (254) 710-2811.
