Dr. Randall Lehmann Sorenson, 51, Rosemead Professor of Psychology and licensed psychologist, died Friday morning, January 21, 2005. Randy was a brilliant scholar and clinician, a much loved colleague, teacher, and mentor, a devoted husband and father, and a faithful Christian. Randy had been an annually contracted, part-time faculty member in Rosemead for 13 years and served as a clinical supervisor in the Biola Counseling Center for 8 years prior. So Randy had been an integral part of the Rosemead graduate training program for over 20 years. Due to his part-time appointment, Randy may not be known by very many within the wider Biola community; however, he presented a very strong voice for integration of faith and field across the psychological scholarly community.
Randy held both a PhD in clinical psychology from Fuller and a PsyD in psychoanalysis from the Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis. Besides his faculty position at Rosemead, Randy also taught for the Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis and carried a thriving private practice through Doulos, Inc. His vita includes over 35 publications in journals such as Psychotherapy, Psychoanalytic Dialogues, Journal of Psychology and Christianity, Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, and Journal of Psychology and Theology; about 50 scholarly presentations at conferences of the American Psychological Association and the Christian Association for Psychological Studies, as well as invited speaking engagements across the country. Randy’s most recent book, Minding Spirituality, was published in 2004 by the Analytic Press.
Randy’s instruction and mentorship were eagerly sought by Rosemead graduate students. He engaged both mind and heart and extended students’ work into the scholarly arena via co-authorship in both publications and conference presentations. Randy’s commitment to Christ and to excellent scholarship in glory to God resonated throughout his interactions with us and with many others in the psychological community. His warm and engaging personality in classes as well as within the faculty will be sorely missed. (From http://www.rosemead.edu/news_events/)
