Welcome to SEPI
The Society for the Exploration of Psychotherapy Integration (SEPI) is an international, interdisciplinary organization whose aim is to promote the exploration and development of approaches to psychotherapy that integrate across theoretical orientations, clinical practices, and diverse methods of inquiry. Since effective psychotherapy must be rooted in both clinical observation and empirical verification, SEPI seeks to bring clinicians and researchers together in unprecedented degrees of active collaboration, so as to enable clinicians to learn and utilize the findings of cutting edge research, and for researchers to learn from the observations of clinicians working with the issues that arise in the actual practice of psychotherapy. In promoting dialogue between therapists of differing theoretical orientations and between clinicians and researchers, SEPI aims to advance our understanding of the sources of effective therapeutic change and to meet the needs of the growing ranks of integrative therapists.
SEPI is also mindful of culture as a fundamental context and understands that cultural variation, including views of psychotherapy and the degree of its acceptance and development, are multi-determined. SEPI welcomes into the dialogue of psychotherapy integration the participation of members of all cultural identities whether defined by regions, countries, religions, gender or other factors.
As an international organization, SEPI has members in the following countries:
Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, China, India, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Republic of Singapore, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States of America
Dr. Marvin R. Goldfried - Psychotherapy Integration: Past, Present, and Future
Join us for a Webinar on November 18
SEPI members may register without cost
The Society for Psychotherapy Research and Society for the Exploration of Psychotherapy Integration together present this webinar.
It has been more than 30 years since Dr. Goldfried has been interested and actively involved in promoting, researching, and putting into practice the integration of different approaches to the practice of psychotherapy. Although most of his efforts, and those of his colleagues, have primarily been devoted to closing the gap among different theoretical orientations, many of them more recently have begun to shift their attention to the important issue of closing the gap between research and practice. The interest is not only in enabling clinicians to learn and utilize the findings of cutting edge research, but for researchers to learn from the observations of clinicians working with the issues that arise in the actual practice of psychotherapy. This webinar will provide an overview of these two approaches to psychotherapy integration, discuss what is being done to integrate practice and research, and hopefully will allow for a lively interaction with the participants.
