The Psychotherapy & Spirituality Institute offers a summertime continuing clinical education certificate program in spiritually-informed psychotherapies. This program gives qualified professionals providing mental health or pastoral care services an opportunity to undertake structured and sustained study of key intersections between spiritual wisdom and psychological insight.
In a seminar setting, students will consider a wide array of topics relevant to practice – including intimacy, family life, cultural diversity & ethics, addictions, conflict, grief, and trauma – incorporating spiritual perspectives into each area. A brief final integrative paper will allow students to apply what they have learned to their own work.
This program is meant to enrich professionals’ clinical practice and deepen their understanding of how spiritual dynamics figure in holistic care. 15-CEC’s are available to NYSED certified LMSWs, LCSWs, LMFTs, LMHCs and CASACs. Graduates of the summer certificate program will become PSI alumni and program affiliates.
