William Whitney joined the faculty at Azusa Pacific in 2014. His areas of expertise include the integration of psychology and theology, the spiritual and religious development of emerging adults, theological anthropology, and group psychotherapy. His recent book, Problem and Promise in Colin E. Gunton’s Doctrine of Creation (Brill Publishers, 2013), discusses how the doctrine of creation helps conceptualize interdisciplinary work between theology and other subjects. Whitney practices as a therapist at La Vie Counseling Center where he sees couples, individuals, and runs a short-term process group. He is currently a board member for the Group Psychotherapy Association of Los Angeles, and serves as a consultant for the Thrive Center for Human Development at the Fuller Graduate School of Psychology.
