If you are a mental health provider who is interested in learning how to implement Christian CBT in your clinical practice, I would be happy to consult with you. Consultation differs from supervision in that you remain legally and ethically responsible for your patients. My consultation is based on the empirical work on Christian CBT that I published in the book Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Christians with Depression: A Tool-Based Primer.

Interested in Online Training
in Spirituality and Mental Health?

My colleagues and I created an exciting new training program for mental health providers, and we’d love to have you participate. Spiritual Competency Training in Mental Health (SCT-MH) is a multi-disciplinary online program designed to train mental health providers in basic spiritual and religious competencies. The goal of the program is to equip providers with greater confidence and competence in helping clients with religious/spiritual issues.

Mental health providers and trainees of all disciplines, clergy, and other professionals are welcome to participate. You can earn 6 CE credits upon completion of the program.

The training is online and self-paced. It takes six to eight hours to complete, can be done on your own time, and consists of a number of engaging resources and learning activities.

The modules cover a number of key topics:

  • Common stereotypes about religion/spirituality (RS);

  • The diversity of RS expressions;

  • Why it is important to address RS in treatment;

  • The importance of the therapist’s own RS attitudes, beliefs, and practices;

  • How to assess RS;

  • How to help clients access RS resources, and how to respond to RS problems that arise in treatment.

The training costs $69, which includes 6 CE credits sponsored by the Maryland Psychological Association.
