2022 CPA Conference: Grace Transforms Nature 

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 and leader 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 perspective. 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 professions.

Archbishop Bernard A. Hebda welcomes the Catholic Psychotherapy Association conference to the Twin Cities and offers his prayerful support. Saint Thomas Aquinas, pray for us! Saint Paul, pray for us!
