CPA Conference 2024

Addressing the etiology and treatment of various disruptions affecting the intimate communion of love and life between a man, woman, and their family.


The 2024 Catholic Psychotherapy Association Conference will visit our understanding of  the role marriage and family have in human flourishing in accordance with God’s plan for our salvation. We will review the foundations of our understanding of the human person, the complimentary between man and women, and the becoming of one flesh that the marriage covenant establishes. Particular focus will be given to ways in which human brokenness is made manifest within relationships and vocational states. Current issues affecting the human person(s) within the Sacrament of Marriage and their family will be discussed from the integrated perspectives of scientific literature, clinical practice and Catholic anthropology.

Catholic mental health and affiliated professionals must be formed, informed, and equipped to address familial concerns in ways that are ethically sound, empirically supported, faithful to Catholic anthropology, and practically feasible. The conference will address the etiology and treatment of various disruptions affecting the intimate communion of love and life between a man, woman and their family. Particular attention will be given to topics related to etiology (medical, psychological, social, and spiritual), evidence-based treatment and ethical and legal precautions relevant to the Catholic psychotherapist. 

The Catholic Psychotherapy Association aims to serve the Church by addressing psychological and relational issues within marriage and family systems. This also includes ways in which practitioners may assist individuals in living their vocation to the fullest, and restoring communion and participation in the Church.
