Testimonial about a past conference, LPC-Intern, Patricia Harris, EdD said: "I am so glad to be part of CPA now as a new member. This was my first conference experience and it's been a true blessing. I work in a private practice and I needed the support and a way to integrate my Catholic spirituality. I have found all the knowledge, support and prayer that I have needed in this conference and I will be back. I am so glad that God opened the door when I asked and He answered by showing me the CPA."
CPA Background: About ten years ago a few Catholic therapists started meeting together to mutually support each other living out their Catholic faith in their professional work. They delighted in finding other like-minded therapists who had a similar dream of finding, networking, and applying their Catholic faith to their profession. They then formed the Catholic Psychotherapy Association and currently have about 200 members. Members enjoy networking with other Catholic therapists, opportunities for conferences and continuing education units, and receiving prayer support and wisdom from other therapists.
