Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0989277313, Paperback)

This book by Dr. Angela Arhona Egbikuadje, a Nigerian, and a licensed clinical psychologist practicing in the United States of America and in Nigeria clarifies the role of psychological assessments during the formation process of individuals seeking the religious and priestly vocation by integrating evidence based psychological testing practices and the Catholic Church's view on vocation and psychological tests. Dr. Angela Egbikuadje integrated the fundamental information on the Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation Pastores Dabo Vobis document of the church as well as the International Test Commission Guidelines on psychological tests as she addresses the major mistaken beliefs or myths of psychological testing in Africa. In this book also, the author also provide answers to some of the vital questions that formators, seminarians, novices, and aspirants have on the significance of psychological tests and how it complements their gift of vocation. With the view that the result of psychological testing does not in fact minimize the spiritual notion of the vocation to the priesthood or to the consecrated life, the author also provides the readers with more meaningful insight on the role and value of strength-based psychological assessments as it pertains to the overall selection process of priests, religious, or consecrated persons. Taken together, the goal of this book written by Dr. Angela A. Egbikuadje is to enlighten readers and to provide them with a more objective outlook on the numerous benefits and facts of psychological testing in a diverse and multicultural African society. Although this book will be most beneficial to formators and those in formation, it is a book for all priest, religious, and the consecrated because it addresses the different controversies regarding psychological testing practices and the vocation to the priesthood or to the consecrated life.
