Religion & Spirituality: Challenges and Opportunities in the Patient/Therapist Relationship

2010 APT Annual Fall Program

Presenter:  Pilar Jennings, Ph.D., psychotherapist, psychoanalyst and researcher at Columbia University Center for the Study of Science & Religion.

Dr. Jennings received her Ph.D in Psychiatry and Religion from Union Theological Seminary, and received her analytic training from the Harlem Family Institute in New York.  She earned a Masters in Medical Anthropology from Columbia University, and a Bachelors in Interdisciplinary Writing from Barnard College of Columbia University.  Dr. Jennings is a long-term practitioner of Tibetan and Vipassana Buddhism, and has studied with senior teachers in both traditions.

Dr. Jennings seeks to offer an intimate look at how Eastern and Western healing modalities have begun to cross-pollinate for contemporary spiritual practitioners and clinicians attuned to the mutually informing worlds of psychotherapy and spiritually.
