Curt Thompson, M.D.Curt Thompson, M.D., is a psychiatrist in private practice in Falls Church, Virginia. He graduated from Wright State University School of Medicine and completed his psychiatric residency at Temple University Hospital. He is board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. His clinical focus has been the treatment of adults, adolescents, and families. He is actively engaged in learning and education as he supervises clinical employees and facilitates ongoing education groups for patients and colleagues. Throughout his career, his main focus of clinical and research interest has been the integration of psychiatry, its associated disciplines, and Christian spirituality. He is a frequent speaker on the topic at workshops, conferences, and retreats. For the past several years that interest has taken a more specific turn as he has gained expertise in the emerging field of interpersonal neurobiology. Thompson believes that the findings in interpersonal neurobiology reflect important tenets of Christian faith that enable us to reflect on, understand, and experience that same faith in fresh, trustworthy ways. He is now training other clinicians in the same material. He and his wife, Phyllis, are the parents of two teenage children and reside in Arlington, Virginia. He serves as an elder at Washington Community Fellowship in Washington, D.C. His duties there have included preaching, teaching, and oversight for the fellowship's healing prayer ministry. He and his wife (a licensed clinical social worker) frequently provide premarital counseling services for couples in their congregation.
