A variety of spiritually integrated psychotherapies have been developed during the past two decades; however, the database and scholarly literature describing their implementation and documenting their effectiveness is relatively small. If spiritually integrated psychotherapies are to gain equality and influence in the mainstream healthcare professions, their claims must be submitted to the scrutiny of empirical research.

Professional literature and training resources are needed to make these approaches more accessible to mental health professionals, graduate students, and trainers. We invite you to collaborate with members of Bridges by contributing to existing research, writing,and training projects or by inviting collaboration on your own current work.
