The Education Committee discusses the mindfulness, ethics of self-care, and spiritual practices in psychotherapy

By Ed Etzel, PhD

The Education Committee (EC) is always seeking interested professionals and students to serve as an EC members. Please contact the EC Chair on this matter. Recently, the EC communicated with editor of our new journal concerning offering CEUs for readers of the new journal. Input on this suggestion are welcome. Members are reminded of the APA Online Academy apa.org/ education/ce that offers abbreviated training to include Power Point slides on topics of interest. Currently, some interesting offerings to include: Foundations of mindfulness, Ethics of self-care, Spiritual practices in psychotherapy, Perfectionism and stress coping - among many other topics for CE credit. The Chair facilitated the compilation of a list of useful "core" readings for interested D47 members and others. Any D47 members who might want to suggest some oftheir own recommended resources are welcome to send them to Ed Etzel.

These resources will likely be posted on the D47 web site in the future. Be well! - Ed Etzel
