2021 Certificate Program

The Psychotherapy & Spirituality Institute is offering 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 holistically inform their practices through the study of the key intersections between spiritual wisdom and psychological insight.

Students will consider a wide array of topics relevant to practice – including intimacy, family life, diversity, 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. 18-CEC’s are available to NYSED certified LMSWs, LCSWs, LMFTs, LMHCs and LCATs. Graduates of the summer certificate program will become PSI alumni and program affiliates.

  • Developing a range of spiritual assessments and interventions
