Psychotherapy in the Age of Artificial Intelligence

Navigating the Present
Preparing for the Future

A  7-hour Self-Study Course

“We are pretty much at the first step [with Artificial intelligence and mental health]."

There is no sense in sticking our heads in the sand and pretending that this is not going to stick around. It isn’t some fickle fad. It is going to permanently change, transform, and disrupt mental health therapy as we know it.

Lance Elliot

 World-renowned expert on Artificial Intelligence (AI)

ArtiFicial Intelligence is TRansforming Psychotherapy.
Like it or not.

As highlighted in the quote above, dismissing AI’s influence on the mental health field as a passing or inconsequential trend ignores that it is going to fundamentally reshape therapeutic practices.

Its ability to analyze vast amounts of data is already marking a significant shift from traditional therapy methods. And ongoing developments are happening faster than any technology we’ve seen before.

AI is revolutionizing the accessibility, efficiency, and effectiveness of mental health services.


If you wish to stay at the forefront of the psychotherapy field, it’s crucial to stay informed about AI and its evolving role in mental  health, both for now and for the future.

You certainly don’t want to be left behind.

By learning about AI and where it’s headed, you can use its ability to provide innovative and effective treatment, improve client outcomes, ensure ethical management and application of new tools, streamline your workflow, and save time.

Additionally, it’s important to understand AI’s limitations and anticipate future developments in the field as they increasingly become woven into psychotherapy practice.

"Having previously taken a course with the Mind Body Training Institute, I signed up because I trust that you offer high-quality material."

It’s impossible to ignore the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on the world and on the psychotherapy field.

The course content was not only interesting and informative but also incredibly helpful. I learned a lot and appreciate your dedication to staying on top of this crucial topic.

The comprehensive list of resources, insightful interviews, and highly effective demonstration videos were particularly impressive. It’s unbelievable that these AI tools already exist—I was amazed… and this is just the beginning!

This course is essential for therapists. AI is a reality. We can’t ignore that it’s impacting mental health care very fast. We must stay informed and be prepared.
Thank you for offering the course.

Juliet Austin, M.A., formerly a psychotherapist based in Vancouver, Canada, has over 25 years of experience helping therapists create scientifically-backed website and sales page content and build successful practices.

Clinton Power has been a relationship therapist in private practice since 2003. He works with clients online in Australia and overseas and in-person from his office in the NSW Northern Rivers. Clinton created and owned the Australia Counselling Directory before he sold it in 2019.

Juliet and Clinton co-founded the Mind Body Training Institute in 2016 and remain co-owners. They are deeply interested in the continuously evolving intersection of AI and mental health, which they find both fascinating and concerning. While they realize the exact future of AI and mental health is unknown, they understand that AI is here to stay and will only become more advanced in the months and years to come.

While concern about the ongoing development of generative AI is legitimate...psychologists should accept AI as a reality and work with rather than against it.

" ...apprehension [about AI in mental health] is very much justified. I get it. There are going to be some failures as well as some successes. But I don’t think this is going away. The potential benefits are far too great to ignore. "

Muhammad Mamdani

“We need the clinical community to wake up and embrace responsibility of these [AI] technologies. It would be easy to dismiss how good they are, how quickly they bake themselves into pillars of society, until it’s too late."

Frequently Asked Questions

As we’ve indicated on this page – AI is here to stay whether you agree with it or not. Whether you like it or not.

There are definitely reasons to be concerned about AI, and we cover these issues in the course. However, one thing is for sure…

AI in psychotherapy is NOT going away.

Instead, it’s going to continue to advance at rapid speeds.

It’s only a matter of time before AI is widely integrated into therapeutic practice.

The sooner you learn about what is happening in the field and how people are using it, the more equipped you’ll be.

Further, as more people become aware of these tools, they are going to expect therapists to be using the most up-to-date technologies.

Also, the more therapists are involved in using the tools and providing feedback, the safer and more helpful the tools will be.

Some tools are available now but must be used cautiously as they have limitations, as we discuss in the course.

However, many of these tools are bound to be perfected in the coming months and years.

Other tools are still in development, and others will be created as AI technology evolves.

Millions of people are already using these tools, so it behooves you to know what they’re using and how they’re using them.

You can then inform clients about their limitations and guide them in using them safely.

This course is 100% self study. You’ll go through the 7 hours of materials at your own pace.
