Seymon Hersh pages on philosophy as counseling. The key note of the NPCA has always been that philosophical and psychological forms of counseling are complementary and mutually supportive avenues for helping people to confront their problems of living. Thus, from its inception, it has sought to bring philosophers and mental health practitioners including social workers, psychologists, mental health counselors, psychiatrists, and psychiatric nurses together to share ideas and make inroads to more efficacious modes of helping.
The NPCA does not maintain that philosophical counseling is a substitute for psychological counseling. Today, more than ever before, with the economic downturn and the rising need for affordable therapy, philosophical counselors have an opportunity to lend a hand. Philosophical training alone does not equip someone to be a successful and qualified philosophical counselor , however. The NPCA, through its team of affiliated philosophers and mental health practitioners, have the ability to help philosophers seeking to become philosophical counselors to acquire the additional skills that are needed.
With its affiliation with the Logic-Based Therapy Institute , the NPCA now has the facility to offer primary and advanced certificate training programs in Logic-Based Therapy LBT , a modality of philosophical counseling that develops and applies the philosophical aspects of cognitive-behavior approaches, including the rigors of logic and the vast domain of philosophical theories, to help people address their problems of everyday living.
If you are a licensed mental health practitioner who is interested in expanding your practice to include the benefits of a philosophical approach, then we cordially invite you to become a member of the NPCA. Last, if you are a philosophy student or a student pursuing a career in mental health , then you are welcome to become a student associate.
