28th Annual Psychotherapy & Faith Conference

Screen Shot 2019-08-15 at 10.54.03 AM.png

This November, our conference will address substance use and addiction, which challenges members of the faith community as well as mental health clinicians. Together, faith leaders, psychotherapists, and other clinicians will learn ways to build a supportive community and help each other in helping individuals bridge isolation and overcome despair and unmanageability of the symptoms they experience. Clergy, who are often “first responders,” and clinicians will be provided resources with the goal of fostering more productive synergy for complimentary efforts to aid people with addiction and substance abuse that impairs key areas of their life and health.

A collaboration with Baylor College of Medicine, The Menninger Clinic, and The Council on Recovery, this conference brings together practitioners from all areas of mental healthcare to hear discussion on the intersection of religion, spirituality, and mental health.
