Catholic Evidence-Based Practices Promote Imitation of Our Lady Who is the Perfection of Nature Transformed by Grace

Presented by Brigette Erwin PhD 

Saturday, April 30th 10:30am - 12:00pm: Lecture and Q&A 

1.5 CEUs 


Our Lady Full of Grace is nature transformed and elevated into the perfect model of what Catholic psychotherapy should strive to achieve. Specific criteria for evaluating evidence-based practices have been developed such that recommended treatments are available for many psychiatric disorders. For the ministry of healing in Catholic psychotherapy to be transformed and elevated by God’s grace so that our Lady’s virtues are best imitated, it is important that Catholic psychotherapists utilize evidence-based practices, that studies of Catholic psychotherapy treatments increase, and that developments in Catholic psychotherapy are disseminated in Integratus, the flagship journal of the Catholic Psychotherapy Association.

Target Audience: Practitioners (psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, counselors, marriage and family therapists) and students 

Course Content Level: Intermediate

Learning Objectives: 

  • Describe evidence-based interventions, consistent with tenets of Roman Catholic formation, for several of the most common psychiatric disorders.
  • Apply evidence-based practices to promote our Lady’s ten principal virtues.
  • Describe Integratus, the flagship journal of the Catholic Psychotherapy Association, and to describe the importance of conducting studies of Catholic psychotherapy treatments integrated with Roman Catholic doctrine and publishing in Integratus to improve implementation of Catholic evidence-based practices.
