PSI has taken an interdisciplinary approach to mental health and spiritual wholeness for more than 40 years.  Our six-week, 12-module, 18-hour course will explore the many ways spiritually informed approaches can improve treatment outcomes across a range of mental-health disciplines.  The teachers are all licensed professionals with a substantive background in handling both spiritual and clinical concerns. The PSI faculty include LCSWs, LMHCs, an LMFT, and an LP. They come from a range of faith backgrounds, including Buddhist, Christian, and Jewish.

While the PSI faculty is a multidisciplinary one, great care is taken to underscore that spiritually-informed psychotherapy may only be done within each professional’s scope of practice. NY State LMSWs, LCSWs, LMFTs, and LMHCs are eligible for 18.0 CE’s; NY State CASACs are eligible for 15.0 CE’s. Overall objectives of the program include better acquainting licensed mental health providers with spiritually informed approaches and also in assisting them in determining how those can best be incorporated into their mental health practice.

Classes will meet each Wednesday from June 21-July 26, 2017 and run from 9:00am-12:00pm, with a break between the two weekly modules. Classes will be held at the PSI office downtown at 120 Broadway, 38th Floor, NY, NY 10271. PSI is proud to once again partner with the Interfaith Center of New York to offer this program for its second year.
