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. We want to do our part to change this dynamic.
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.
The PACT Institute Equity Scholarships will award:
At the PACT Institute, we recognize that all communities benefit from equal access to mental health services. To play an integral part in reaching this goal, the therapists who train with us must reflect the diversity of our society.
Scholarships will be awarded to clinicians from underrepresented groups who are licensed and pre-licensed marriage and family therapists, professional counselors, social workers, psychologists, and psychiatrists.
To qualify for attendance in the PACT training, a pre-licensed clinician must (a) be in the final year of graduate school, (b) actively see clients as a supervisee and/or intern, and (c) have a supervisor’s approval to attend the training.
