Teaching & Research Interests

Glenn McCullough joined the faculty of Emmanuel College in 2021 and is currently serving in a joint appointment with Knox College, having previously taught courses in world religions and psychology at Seneca College, Toronto, and courses in spiritual care and psychotherapy at Knox College, Toronto. He is an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in Canada and a practicing psychotherapist. His research interests include the spiritual, philosophical, and historical roots of various psychotherapeutic modalities; sleep, dreams, and dream interpretation in various cultural and religious contexts; biblical, theological, and interfaith traditions of Sophia; Christian and comparative mysticism; and theory and method in theology and religious studies. His doctoral research on dreams and the spiritual roots of psychodynamic therapy, which he is currently editing for publication, was generously funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, and earned a SSHRC Storytellers award. He lives in Scarborough with his wife, Rachel Tulloch, and their three kids, Cole, Ashlyn, and Caleb.
