He’s Not Threatened: You Can Have Jesus and a Therapist Too

As African-American Christians, often times when we face difficult times, we turn towards our faith as a healthy means of coping and healing. This session explores the tension that may be experienced when church, alone, is not providing the support and healing needed to function and thrive. Presenters will address the myths and stigmas that arise as barriers to the utilization of formal mental health care, provide insight into when formal mental health care may be warranted, and tips to successfully locating a mental health professional. This session aims to empower attendees to not check their faith at the therapist’s door, but to instead use it in combination with empirically validated treatment to move them into healing.
