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 Free Online Training
in Spirituality and Mental Health?

My colleagues and I created an exciting new 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 (MD, PhD, Masters level) of all disciplines are welcome to participate. Free CE and CME credits are available upon completion of the program.

The online training takes six to eight hours to complete and consists of a number of engaging resources and learning activities. If you are eligible to participate, you will complete a pre-training questionnaire (~20 mins). You’ll then have access to the online program for 2 weeks. Once you finish the program, you will complete a post-assessment questionnaire (~20 mins) in order to receive your free CE or CME credits.

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.

If you are interested in participating, please complete the eligibility screen on this website. Feel free to share this posting with your colleagues!
