Buddhism and Contemporary Psychology Certificate Program
M. Editor | May 21, 2010
The Institute of Buddhist Studies is pleased to announce an certificate program, the Buddhism and Contemporary Psychology Certificate Program.
The interface between Buddhism and psychotherapy is an increasingly important one, both for individual psychotherapists and for the practical integration of Buddhist teachings into contemporary Western society. While once the dialogue was carried on between two different groups of specialists — psychotherapists and Buddhist practitioners —today that dialogue is frequently carried on within the same person. There is also an increasing number of clients who are committed Buddhists seeking to work with psychotherapists who understand their worldview. Whether they are themselves committed to Buddhism, clinicians may wish to deepen and expand their practice as psychotherapists through a rigorous study of the Buddhist teachings.
