Spiritually Integrated Psychotherapy Training, Maryland

ACPE’s Spiritually Integrated Psychotherapy (SIP) Training helps mental health practitioners develop greater competence and confidence in working with spirituality as part of psychotherapy. The SIP Training consists of 10 3-hour workshops and is a specialty training for persons who have previous training in psychotherapy. All SIP Trainings are targeted toward practitioners who live and work in proximity to the Trainer, but during the pandemic, the trainings are offered online, via Zoom, and are open to participants from any location. Persons who complete the 30-hour training are eligible to work toward ACPE Certification in Spiritually Integrated Psychotherapy. 

This training will “open” online Easter Monday, April 5th, 2021 and conclude on Monday, May 31st, 2021.  Over the course of eight weeks, participants will read SIP content, engage with one another in online discussion postings, submit reflective assignments, and complete online quizzes to obtain CE certificates for each SIP chapter.  Access to the leader will include email, course messaging, independent Zoom meetings, or conversations by phone as needed.  
Two 3-hour synchronous Zoom meetings will be scheduled on the following Saturdays:
• April 10, 2021 from 9 AM to Noon (EDT)
