Spiritually Integrated Psychotherapy

I am currently intending to study Spiritually Integrated Psychotherapy at Basel University in the Psychology department.

Are there any other therapists or counsellors who share a similar interest who might like to engage in some discussion on line (and in time in person) about this? My major focus at the moment is the considerable work that has been done on integrating Buddhism and psychotherapy. I would however be interested in any type of religious / therapeutic integration.

I would also like any feedback that anyone could offer re studying for a PhD at Basel. I understand that the psychology department is taught in English at PhD level. Several other departments also do this. Does anyone have personal experience of this?

And does anyone belong to an English Speaking Sanga in Basel and can they recommend it?

No academic interest, only personal interest in spirituality and meditation

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Tournier


Paul Tournier (May 12, 1898 October 7, 1986) was a Swiss physican and author who had acquired a worldwide audience for his work in pastoral counseling.
His ideas had a significant impact on the spiritual and psychosocial aspects of routine patient care, and he has been called the twentieth century's most famous Christian physician.

I've read almost all of his books and they were really good. He could be heard on the radio on several topics too.
I wished there were more of his kind around and less of those pseudo-sophisticated-make me rich please-wanna be shrinks.

This is a good example, I think, for a type of religious/therapeutic integration.

No, not as such.
Obviously everybody studies more or less the same basics at University and then specialises in something, does a thesis or whatever and then adds studies and degrees in other fields which complements in whatever direction one wants to go.

(phew ... sorry Paddy cher, couldn't put it better, shall I try again in French?)

Thank-you! I will google Paul Tournier and have a look at his work later this evening.
