Let me introduce myself. My name is Phil Monroe and I am a Christian Psychologist. For the past 17 years I was the Director of the MA Counseling and related programs in the Graduate School of Counseling at Biblical Seminary. One of my projects was to create the Global Trauma Recovery Institute, to train those interested in facilitating trauma recovery in cultures outside their own. Check out my page “Global Trauma Recovery Institute” introducing you to my most recent adventures in teaching and training online and around the world.
My clinical experience spans 27 years and diverse settings (outpatient private practice, church-based, residential, jail, and community mental health). Currently, I do clinical work with Diane Langberg, PhD & Associates.
July 2017 marked a change for me. I am now the Taylor Visiting Professor of Counseling and Psychology at Biblical Seminary in light of my new job as Director of Training and Mentoring at the American Bible Society’s Mission: Trauma Healing.

More personally, I am a husband (to Kim) and a father (to Sam and Jared), a gardener, a New Englander in exile, and a die-hard Red Sox fan.
