Learn to create more fulfilling relationships with PACT

The PACT Institute Frontline and First Response Scholarships

About the PACT Institute

Here at the PACT Institute, we are dedicated to helping couples thrive. We know when couples are healthy and secure, our communities are mentally, economically, and socially stronger. Therapy services play a critical role in giving couples the support they need to navigate life’s inevitable challenges. Unfortunately, some communities have limited access to these specialized services. And some communities are especially hard hit by COVID or other crises. We want to do what we can to help. 

The PACT Institute offers continuing professional development opportunities for licensed and pre-licensed mental health professionals. We train clinicians to successfully integrate a Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy® (PACT) in their clinical practices. PACT promotes secure functioning for couples and families. 

PACT graduates walk away with enhanced therapeutic skills and have seen significant growth and successful outcomes for their clients. We are excited about the opportunity to learn and grow as we chip away at the disparities within our field of practice.
