ABSTRACT This article was presented as a paper at a seminar organised by the Theology Faculty of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. The author attends to the mis-encounters between psychology and theology from a theoretical perspective, and deals with the challenges a faculty of theology faces today from a practical perspective. The major mis-encounters take place in the areas of the theological search for truth, which are translated in an overestimation of the cognitive aspect over the affective one, fear to the "sin of thought", and the tendency to minimise the role of the instinctive strengths in our behaviour and thought. Among the challenges of the Faculty of Theology, the article discusses the lack of answers suitable for the university youth’s reality, and makes some reflections over the institutional belonging of the Faculty of Theology and its consequences for the academic development. The paper finishes developing a proposal of multi-disciplinary work, based on the concept of "consensual sense" by W. Bion
