The 2022 Catholic Psychotherapy Conference will revisit the foundations of our understanding of the human person according to Catholic anthropology. It is time for the Catholic Psychotherapy Association to be a more visible pioneer in the remarriage of truth and sound psychological practice. The year 2022 marks 20 years of the Catholic Psychotherapy Association engaging in this work as a community of mental health professionals.
Conference presentations will answer the question “what is Catholic psychology and psychotherapy?” from a multidisciplinary perspectives. Particular attention will be given to topics related to ethics and the education, supervision, and continued formation of mental health professionals.
As we celebrate, we will renew focus on the Eucharist as the center of our faith and the living representation of how God takes something so ordinary - bread - and transforms it and elevates it. If He can do this with bread, imagine what He can do with the work of the Catholic Psychotherapy Association? He can take the ordinary work of our profession, transform it and elevate it to be a living, working mission of healing and restoration of the mental health profession.
Inspiration Verse: Romans 12:2
“Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may prove what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”

Patron Saint of students, universities, Pray for us!
"Since therefore grace does not destroy nature but perfects it, natural reason should minister to faith as the natural bent of the will ministers to charity."
— Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica, Part 1, Question 1, Article 8, Response to Objection 2.
