Incorporating Integrative Therapies in a Fragmented World

Dr. Juliet Rohde-Brown, Ph.D., Chair of the Ph.D. In Integrative Therapy and Healing Practices Program, and Featured Faculty Panel: Dr. Lionel Corbett, M.D., and Dr. Fanny Brewster, Ph.D, MFA

This world is full of uncertainty and fragmentation. How we remain present with the element of not knowing has implications for our mental, physical, and spiritual health and how we engage with others. A panel of faculty from the Depth Psychology: Integrative Therapy and Healing Practices doctoral specialization will discuss the meaning of integration and the way in which their teaching is informed by a variety of ways of knowing. Perspectives on therapeutic approaches that rely on nurturing the capacity to live symbolically will be included in the presentation as well as ways in which depth psychology is called to ancestral wisdom and to diversity and inclusion.
