How We Came About
We are the Caucus on Spirituality, Religion and Psychiatry of the American Psychiatric Association (APA).
Succeeding the APA’s Corresponding Committee on Religion and Psychiatry as a group of members interested in the interface between religion/spirituality and psychiatry, we meet at the APA and IPS Annual meetings to foster communication and collaboration. Products of this collaboration include sponsored workshops and symposia at these annual meetings. In addition, we help to nominate candidates for the Oskar Pfister Award Lecture, co-sponsored by the APA and the Association of Professional Chaplains.
