Overview

The term “pneumiatry” is used in various senses.  However, unless stated otherwise, it is used in its standard sense (see “Terminology” section below).  Pneumiatry, regardless of the applicable sense, is a scientific discipline.  It is sometimes referred to as “psychiatric Christianity” because, in one usage, it is:

The first behavioral science (science of the mind) that is perfectly consistent with every principle found in the sacred writings of the Christian faith.

In this usage, pneumiatry is:

The first truly Bible-based psychiatry in history

The sciences of “pneumiology,” “pastoral anthropology,” “pneumiatry,” “pastoral anthropiatry,” “anthropiatry,” “psychiatric pneumiatry,” and “pneumiatric psychiatry” were established by Dr. Michael J. Bisconti following primarily in the tradition of Dr. Carl G. Jung.  Note that this association with the tradition of Dr. Jung is one that emerged after these sciences had been fully developed and is, at best, minimal.

“Unipsychiatric Theory”

Dr. Michael J. Bisconti is the discoverer of unipsychiatric theory (unified field theory of the human psyche).  For the first time in history, a single theory explains how different therapists (psychiatrists, psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, Freudians, Jungians…) are able to believe in differing theoretical constructs regarding the nature of the human psyche.  A key principle of unipsychiatric theory is Dr. Bisconti’s historic proof of:

The infinite malleability of intersubjective reality

Unipsychiatric theory is presented in Dr. Bisconti’s psychiatric magnum opus, his three-volume work Unified Field Theory Of The Mind: The Unified Field Theory Of Pneumiatric Psychiatry (located on the original [homemade] website of the L. F. Nexus; login required).

Institutional Practice

The following pneumiatric institutes, clinics, hospital, and centers are currently in operation in very rudimentary forms.  The websites for these institutional entities are under construction.

The Pneumiatry Institute website is now a skeleton of its former self since almost all of its resources have been moved to Chicago Christian University.
