Brazilian psychological society objects to counselor’s ‘Christian’ label
Catholic World News - July 17, 2012
Brazil’s Federal Council of Psychology has warned Mario Lobo that she could lose her license because she advertises herself as a “Christian psychologist.”
Lobo, an Evangelical Christian, has raised concerns among her colleagues by working with clients coping with same-sex attraction. The professional agency took exception to her advertising her Christian faith, saying that it could be an undue effort to “influence patients.”
Lobo has flatly rejected the Federal Council’s criticism, saying “I am not going to comply with this decision.” She insists that she will continue to serve clients who are looking for a Christian therapist.
