    Personal profile

    Personal information

    My name is Ruard Ganzevoort, and I am Professor of Practical Theology at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. My main areas of interest are pastoral theology and psychology, psychology of religion, narrative approaches, trauma, and popular culture. I have published or edited 16 books and more than 130 scientific or professional publications. I was president of the International Academy of Practical Theology from 2007-2009 and am currently president of the International Society for Empirical Research in Theology. Since June 2011, I am also a member of the Upper Chamber of the Dutch national parliament for the Green party GroenLinks.  

     

    Research

    My research focuses on the lived religion, how people shape their relationship to the sacred and how they relate to the tradition(s) from which they draw. I'm working on projects in the field of religion and trauma, sexual diversity, spiritual care, and religion in popular culture.
