2017  Integration Symposium
Relational Integration and Psychotherapy
Steven Sandage, PhD
Boston University

Wednesday, February 15, 2017 – Friday, February 17, 2017
Lecture: 10:00 am – 10:50 am
Panel responses: 11:00 am – 12:00 noon

About the Symposium: What are the key relational dynamics that can facilitate constructive change in integrating spirituality and mental health? How do the dynamics of diversity and justice play into relational approaches to psychotherapy? What implications from both trinitarian theology and trauma theology can we draw to help open space for healing and growth?

These are some of questions that Dr. Steven Sandage, Albert and Jessie Danielsen Professor of Psychology of Religion at Boston University, will address at our 2017 Integration Symposium on relational integration and psychotherapy—joined by Fuller faculty members from a range of disciplines who will offer their responses and engage in dialogue. Join us for three days of provocative discussion, learning, and networking.

Additional Workshop: Psychologists Writing for Ministry Audiences
This free two-day writing workshop is for psychologists who would like to make their research and ideas more accessible to a broader ministry audience by writing for major periodicals. Led by Christianity Today editor Drew Dyck, this hands-on, interactive writing lab will take place February 15 and 16 in the afternoon. Dyck will discuss how to write for a Christian ministry periodical and facilitate writing exercises. Participants will leave with an outline for an article, ideas for engaging readers, and a timeline of steps to seek publication.
