There will be a reception at the end of the day for networking and conversation.

Women Veterans Tell Their Story

In Our Own Voice is a play-in-monologues drawn from interviews with women veterans written by Beverly Coyle and produced by PSI. The production is intended to help expand our awareness of the experiences of women who have served in our military. In recent years, it has been staged across the country. Visit our Women Veterans Project page for more information on the project.

“The Spirit of Healing” in the Spotlight

The Interfaith Center of New York recently interviewed presenters in the conference it co-sponsored with the Psychotherapy & Spirituality Institute and the Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services in June 2015. One faith leader featured in the ICNY spotlight is PSI Managing Director Kelly Murphy Mason, who spoke about “where the spirit of healing is at work” in people’s recovery, through the individual process of psychotherapy, as well as through shared participation in spiritual communities.
