Let me introduce myself. My name is Phil Monroe and I am a Christian Psychologist. From 2000 to 2017 I was the Director of the MA Counseling and related programs in the Graduate School of Counseling at Missio Seminary (formerly 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. Currently, I am the Taylor Visiting Professor at Missio.
From 2017 to the present I spend a chunk of my time representing the Trauma Healing Institute at American Bible Society. I have held multiple roles there, director of training and mentoring, director of materials development and director of THI. It was an honor to represent them as a trainer in 19 countries and to help contextualize core materials for use by church leaders around the world.
My clinical experience now spans 32 years and diverse settings (outpatient private practice, church-based, residential, jail, and community mental health). Currently, I am the owner of Langberg, Monroe & Associates and partner with Dr. Diane Langberg to care for our clients.
