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.


  1. I am very thankful to those who have helped to form this Caucus and looking forward to the good things that may come out of these discussions.

  2. We will be meeting next at the upcoming IPS Meeting, Saturday, October 6th, 2-3 PM in the Sheraton New York and Towers, Lenox Ballroom, second floor. The agenda includes formation of a nominating committee to propose candidates for election to the Executive Committee in the spring. Harold Koenig will be delivering the Oskar Pfister Award Lecture at 8 AM Sunday morning. I hope to see many of you there!
