Through an ongoing collaboration with the Center for Kehilla Development in Jerusalem, we have developed a series of workshops for clergy in how to serve as first responders for mental health needs within religious communities. Specific topics include current information about the prevalence, severity & impact of mental disorders; an introduction to the principles and practices of evidence-based treatments such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT); the relevance of spirituality/religion to mental health; and in-depth lectures about scrupulosity (religious OCD), psychosis, self-injury, and community-based prevention of sexual abuse. Please contact us for more information or to arrange for a workshop (groups of 10 or more participants only, please).
