Brookhaven Institute for Psychoanalysis and Christian Theology (BIPACT)



About Brookhaven Institute


The Brookhaven Institute for Psychoanalysis and Christian Theology (BIPACT) operates through the sponsorship of the Society for the Exploration of Psychoanalytic Therapies and Theology (SEPTT). The mission and vision of SEPTT guides the development of BIPACT:


SEPTT educates clinicians in the practice of psychoanalytic psychotherapy in dialogue with Christian theology. In this capacity, it seeks to promote community between Christian academics, clinicians and clergy who are dedicated to psychoanalytic therapies, relationality, and theology.


BIPACT is administered through the agency of Brookhaven Center. Marie Hoffman, a co-director of Brookhaven Center, is the Executive Director of BIPACT. Other qualified persons from the membership of SEPTT are appointed to carry out the functions of the institute. A public member at large will serve an advisory capacity to assure attunement to the public interest. BIPACT is also committed to respecting and safeguarding the rights of each candidate. BIPACT will not discriminate with regard to sex, age, race, national origin, religious or sexual orientation, or physical disability.  The ethical guidelines of the American Psychological Association will direct BIPACT policies and practices.
