“Buddhist Psychology” – Russell Pyle ’03

& Center for Interfaith Engagement, Homecoming.

Russell James Pyle ’03, psychotherapist and PhD student in counselor education at the University of New Mexico, presents on Buddhist psychology.

From Russell:

“With the rise of the mindfulness movement in psychotherapy, there has been a renewed interest in the wisdom psychology of Buddhism. Buddhist principles can be beneficial to the process of healing for patients with a variety of mental health symptoms. This presentation [identifies] those principles and subsequent interventions as well as how they have been employed in my work with recently released ex-offenders.”
