of the Catholic Psychotherapy Association

Hyatt Regency Pier 66, Fort Lauderdale, FL | September 21 – 23, 2017

The Catholic Psychotherapy Association National Conference is the foremost gathering of Catholic mental health professionals in the nation.  As Catholic  psychotherapists, clergy, and related professionals, we strive to bring healing and wholeness to “divided” hearts in our broken world by developing and supporting psychological theory and best practices in mental health consistent with the teachings of the Catholic Church.   This year’s theme,  “Healing Divided Hearts in Our World”, addresses the disorder in today’s secular understanding of the human person while emphasizing  healing offered through psychotherapy, the Catholic Church,  and in particular, devotion to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.  During this 100th Anniversary of Fatima, we invite you to come and connect with your peers from around the country and share knowledge and experiences with others.  Learn about the latest developments in mental health practices from leading experts in our profession including Dr. Ken Pargament who will give two presentations on Spirituality Integrated Psychotherapy. There will be daily Mass and Adoration, in addition to networking opportunities, and new exhibits.   Enjoy sharing a meal with colleagues during the luncheon and the CPA 10th Anniversary Celebration banquet.  We hope many of you can join us for the Pre-Conference Day of Reflection focusing on the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary led by Monsignor John Esseff and Mother Adela Galido, Servants of the Pierced Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
