The Center for Research in Psychotherapy and Religion (CPR) is committed to the empirical and theoretical study of psychotherapy and religion and their interaction. The goal is to improve the quality of treatments, the training of therapists, and the mental health delivery system through research and scholarship. CPR focuses on the relationship of psychotherapy process and outcome; the appropriate role of religion in psychotherapy; and the impact of public policy on mental health reform. The center is committed to high caliber clinical outcome and process research that addresses practical issues facing therapists on the front-line of treatment delivery, and CPR aims to be a national resource for information on religiously sensitive therapy and a venue fir training graduate students and post-doctoral clinicians. Moreover, the center promotes scholarly research that encourages public policy that is supportive of and sensitive to matters of religion and spirituality.
