Catholic Psychotherapy Association National Conference

Sep 21, 2017 to Sep 23, 2017 - from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM - English

The Catholic Psychotherapy Association National Conference is the foremost gathering of Catholic mental health professionals in the nation. As Catholic psychotherapists, clergy, and related professionals, we strive to bring healing and wholeness to “divided” hearts in our broken world by developing and supporting psychological theory and best practices in mental health consistent with the teachings of the Catholic Church.

This year’s theme, “Healing Divided Hearts in Our World,” addresses the disorder in today’s secular understanding of the human person while emphasizing healing offered through psychotherapy, the Catholic Church, and in particular, devotion to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

To see a flyer with the day's schedule, go to:

The conference will start with a Day of Reflection - a retreat focusing on the Two Hearts, in honor of the 100-year anniversary of the Fatima apparitions. It will be led by Msgr. John Esseff and Mother Adela Galindo, SCTJM-Servants of the Pierced Hearts of Jesus and Mary. At the end of the retreat, attendees will have an opportunity to consecrate themselves, their families and their practices to the Two Hearts. Within this year’s theme of Healing Divided Hearts, we will offer presentations focusing on integration of spirituality in psychotherapy, with dynamic keynote speakers and breakout sessions. Presentation topics will cover a wide range of interest, all in the light of our Catholic faith.
