Counseling psychology over and against clinical psychology focuses on the health of the client rather than pathology. I guess I have taken that framework to heart. My supervisor told me that I should be a little more willing to assume serious mental health problems in my clients. The good part comes here: my supervisor suggested that I should be less Arminian and more Calvinist when thinking about my clients' mental health. I'll forgive her for the slight and I accept her point. I'll also forgive her ignorance regarding the Lutheran view of depravity. If the effects of the fall on the reason and intellect are referred to as the Noetic effects, what are the effects of the fall on the emotions?
