Cambridge Inter-Faith Programme

 

Visiting Scholar Glen Milstein (CUNY) addressed the Faculty of Divinity's Inter-Religious Relations seminar in October 2021, generating fertile discussion alongside respondent Dr Andrew Davison. Those interested in Dr Milstein's ongoing work in this domain may be pleased to hear that he is one of four speakers at the 2022 Spirituality and Mental Health conference, organised by Metro Atlanta. 

The other speakers are Dr Lisa Miller (Columbia University: "The spiritually awakened brain"), Dr Emmanuel Lartey (Emory University: "Healing begins in the pulpit") and Dr Miraj Desai (Yale University: "Partnering with the African American Church for Mental Health and Racial Justice"). Drawing on research in psychiatry, counselling, and psychology, the speakers will forward the case that "Faith-based therapy works". Dr Milstein will speak on the topic "Responding to emotional distress and pandemic-triggered trauma".

For full details of this online event, scheduled for Saturday 29 January 2022 (3-7pm GMT), please visit the Metro-Atlanta Faith-based Mental Health Initiative's event page (on Eventbrite): https://www.eventbrite.com/e/faith-based-therapy-works-tickets-240676007417
