About the Institute for Integrative Psychotherapy
The Institute for Integrative Psychotherapy is an International Academy offering a number of supervision groups, training programs, and intensive workshops for the practicing mental health professional. Please see the schedule of Workshops and Training Programs for information about current openings. Not all supervision groups, workshops or training programs are listed on this web site. Please contact each Faculty member directly about openings and registration requirements.
Based on the concepts and therapeutic methods developed by Richard Erskine, PhD, and members of the Professional Development Seminars of the Institute for Integrative Psychotherapy, the Faculty teach the integration of affective, cognitive, behavioral and body-oriented psychotherapies within a relational systems perspective. Building on each participant's knowledge and experience, we aim to enhance the unique therapeutic capacity of each psychotherapist and counselor.
The core concepts of Integrative Psychotherapy provide the basis for a systematic theory of personality and methods. These unique concepts are verified and enhanced through our teaching of psychoanalytic self psychology and object relations theory, Gestalt Therapy, Transactional Analysis, developmental theory, and physiological psychotherapies.
The Institute for Integrative Psychotherapy is approved by the American Psychological Association to offer continuing education for psychologists, by the National Board of Certified Counselors for counselors and by the American Board of Examiners in Pastoral Counseling for pastoral counselors. The Institute for Integrative Psychotherapy maintains responsibility for the programs.
