SK-A-4081 Faculty: Bryan Wittine, PhD, LMFT 10 CEUs possible approved for MD, PhD, LCSW, MFT & RN With the rise of meditation, prayer and other spiritual practices, and the fact that nearly 48% of the American population reports having had some kind of mystical or religious experience, is there room in psychotherapy for spiritual inquiry? What do therapists need to know if they are called to offer guidance to those on a spiritual path? Topics in this course will include: methods of spiritual inquiry and their use in psychotherapy; dual and nondual perspectives on spirituality and their implications for mental health and well-being; archetypal images of inner guidance from East and West; archetypal patterns of mystical experience; spirituality as a defense and defenses against spirituality; and dreams and the contemplative life. In addition to Dr. Wittine’s lectures and case presentations, participants are invited to share clinical material from their own casework to enhance our conversations. headshot_BryanWBryan Wittine, PhD, LMFT, is a Jungian psychoanalyst in private practice in Marin County where he consults with therapists on depth psychology and spirituality.
