We welcome the Rev. Dr. Pamela Cooper-White as our keynote speaker this fall. She was named the Christiane Brooks Johnson Memorial Chair in Psychology and Religion at Union Theological Seminary in New York in 2015.
Dr. Cooper-White holds PhD degrees from Harvard University and The Institute for Clinical Social Work, Chicago; an MA in Pastoral Counseling from Holy Names University, Oakland, CA; a Master of Divinity from Harvard Divinity School; and a Bachelor of Music Magna cum Laude from Boston University. Dr. Cooper-White is a certified clinical Fellow in the American Association of Pastoral Counselors (AAPC), a National Board Certified Counselor (NBCC), a member of the International Association for the Psychology of Religion (IAPR), and a Research Associate of the American Psychoanalytic Association. She currently serves on the Steering Committee of the Psychology, Culture & Religion Group of the American Academy of Religion (AAR), and on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Pastoral Theology.
Dr. Cooper-White is the author of five books and numerous scholarly articles and anthology chapters in pastoral theology, with a special focus in the areas of postmodern, psychoanalytic and feminist theory and ethics in dialogue with both theology and clinical practice. Her recent works have delved into multiplicity of God and persons, intersubjectivity, and the use of the therapist’s self as an instrument for pastoral care and psychotherapy. Her current research interests include sacred space, architecture, and the psyche; and the study of religious, spiritual, and existential themes in the history of psychoanalysis.
