David Van Dyke
David Van Dyke serves as Director of the Marriage and Family Therapy Program and Associate Professor of Marriage and Family Therapy at Wheaton College. He works with people in the relationships and systems that shape us all, specifically related to our relationship with Christ. Every person is constantly imbedded in multiple contexts (e.g., family, culture, church, society) that provide possibilities and constraints. These mutual-influencing areas between the individual and the contexts are the focus of Dr. Van Dyke’s teaching and scholarship. His areas of expertise are working with adolescents and their families, and integration of Christian faith and systems thinking. In addition to his teaching and scholarship, he works in practice at the Center for Family & Relational Health with couples and families in Wheaton. In his personal time, he likes traveling with his family, kayaking with his wife and exploring family history.
