Summary: The relation between Psychology and Practical Theology – aspects of the mutual value of this relation This article focuses on issues of the praxis in Practical Theology. As far as the extent of the praxis is concerned, attention is directed to praxis as the psychological disposition of people. The interaction between Scripture and praxis is investigated, incorporating the views of several exponents in this field of study. The conclusion arrived at is that in practical-theological research, the value and function of the praxis, in the sense of the psychological disposition of people, are to be sought on a level between the functions of clarifying and the setting of norms; between reality and truth and between sources on reality and the Source of truth.
