Dr. Curt Thompson is a psychiatrist in private practice in Falls Church, Virginia. He graduated from Wright State University School of Medicine and completed his psychiatric residency at Temple University Hospital. He is board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, and his clinical focus has been the treatment of adults, adolescents, and families. Dr. Thompson is actively engaged in learning and education as he supervises clinical employees and facilitates ongoing education groups for patients and colleagues. Throughout his career, his main focus of clinical and research interest has been the integration of psychiatry, its associated disciplines, and Christian spirituality. For the past several years, that interest has taken a more specific turn to addressing how new findings in the emerging field of interpersonal neurobiology reflect important tenants of Christian faith, and now are providing opportunities to reflect on, understand, and experience that same faith in fresh, trustworthy ways.  He has specific expertise in the area of interpersonal neurobiology, and is now training other clinicians in the same material.

A continental breakfast will be provided at morning check-in, and snacks will be available at the mid-morning and mid-afternoon breaks. Please register early for the 2014 Spring Counseling Summit. Please contact the CCU Counseling Center with any questions at 513-244-8193 (phone) or (e-mail).


The 2014 Spring Counseling Summit will feature an all-day training session that features Dr. Curt Thompson, which is titled “Integration: An Interpersonal Neurobiological Approach to Shame, Addiction, and Spiritual Well-Being.” This workshop will explore fundamental aspects of interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB); define the basic features of shame and addiction, and their interlocking neurobiological functions; and identify mindfulness-based spiritual practices that enhance the psychotherapeutic process of healing.
