Join us as Lawrence Beech distills and shares his wisdom of integrating spirituality into psychotherapy.

In this one-hour presentation and break-out group experience, you will:

  • Gain an understanding of shared values underlying the diversity of multifaith traditions, rituals, and practices.
  • Deepen knowledge of the distinctive vocabulary, rituals, and practices of diverse faith traditions.
