Dr. Bernard Tyrrell, S.J., earned two Masters degrees, one in Philosophy (Gonzaga University, awarded 1958) and another in Theology (Santa Clara University, awarded 1966) and a Ph.D. in Philosophy (Fordham University, awarded 1972). He is a member of Phi Beta Kappa and has received numerous awards including the Alpha Sigma Nu Award for books published in social and physical sciences (Christotherapy II, 1982). Dr. Tyrrell is a member of the American Academy of Religion, Catholic Theological Society, and an Associate Member of the National Guild of Catholic Psychiatrists. He was on the Board of Directors for the First International Congress of Logotherapy and currently holds emeritus status on the Gonzaga University Board of Trustees.

Dr. Tyrrell has lectured on Christotherapy at universities, in parishes, at retreat centers and to physicians, nurses, spiritual directors, counselors, and lay people. Presently, he is a professor of Philosophy and Religious Studies at Gonzaga University, Spokane, Washington. He teaches Christotherapy and is developing what in effect will be Christotherapy III. He is also working out course offerings and lectures for presentation on the Internet. He is a member of the Society of Jesus, a tax exempt order, and does not profit from the sales of books, course presentation, or donations offered in support of the development of Christotherapy.

According to Dr. Tyrrell, Christotherapy is a work in process. Though the core ideas and methods described in the first two books (Christotherapy published in 1975 and Christotherapy II in 1982) remain valid, there are issues touched upon in the two books that are dated and in need of additional clarification /modification. Still, Christotherapy has remained in print in the United States or other countries for the last quarter of a century. And now, the Internet will bring knowledge of Christotherapy to a world wide audience that is increasing exponentially day by day.
