    A Note from Workshop Presenters: We are excited to offer this advanced intermediate-level workshop!  The workshop's primary audience is psychologists that conduct psychological evaluations of clergy applicants and clergy in the Catholic Church. Students, clergy, and masters-level mental health professionals are also welcome and would benefit from the workshop. When considering registering, please keep in mind that this workshop will have an interactive, hands-on format to thinking through how to construct effective clinical interviews and reports that pay particular attention to identifying and addressing limitations in psychosexual maturity. In order to foster a rich learning environment, participants should be aware they will be talking in small groups to review assessment data from de-identified cases to practice crafting practical recommendations. On camera participation is strongly encouraged to maximize small group cohesion, processing, and interpersonal comfort. This workshop will be dealing with sensitive information regarding psychosexual material in a clinical context, which may be surprising or triggering for some participants and may require discretion. 


    The material in this day-long training builds upon the 2018 webinar, Assessing Sexuality and Sexual Behavior in Clergy and Clergy Candidates, by Dr. Shannon Mullen, Ph.D CSAT(https://www.catholicpsychotherapy.org/event-3725210). We recommend participants to view this on-demand workshop before starting this intermediate-level workshop. In addition, participants may also find the introductory-level workshop by this group of presenters to be helpful in their clinical development:  Psychological Evaluations of Seminary Applicants: Moving from Common to Best Practices https://www.catholicpsychotherapy.org/event-4054588

    Presenter: 

    Sister Patricia Barnette LPC

    Sr. Patricia Marie Barnette is a Sister of the Good Shepherd, living in Danville, PA at the present time.  Her main ministry is counseling, having an active professional counselor license in two states, Florida and Pennsylvania. Since the late 1980’s, she has been involved in counseling women who are seeking healing after an abortion. When Project Rachel began in the mid 1980’s, she felt a call to get involved in this work of mercy. That led her to get a Master degree in Counseling Psychology from Temple University. In addition, Sister Patricia also counsels adults, couples, and single mothers. 

    The sisters helped to start a post-abortion healing ministry in the Midwest in 1990, which Sr. has been a part of since 1995. She has volunteered as a counselor for Project Rachel in the dioceses of Baltimore, Palm Beach, Orlando, St. Augustine and Harrisburg. A year ago, Sr. Patricia had a book published by Pauline Books and Media titled “God’s Mercy Awaits You – Find Healing After Abortion.”

    Sr. Patricia has also given training sessions to priests and counselors on the aspect of trauma as it relates to post-abortion healing, as well as talks at a number of National Right to Life Conventions.
