Founded in 1980, the Cape Cod Institute is a summer-long series of week-long courses taught by leading contributors to knowledge and practice in the field of psychology and leadership. The CE courses and seminars are for educators, mental health, behavioral, leadership and management professionals at all levels - and for members of any profession who apply behavior science knowledge to practice.
The Institute’s workshops and certifications, on a broad spectrum of topics, range from trauma to mindfulness, from anxiety to diversity, are taught by leading thinkers and doers and are attended by practitioners from throughout North America and every continent. The Institute was the first in its field offering interactive education and in-person learning with thought leaders and master teachers, at a pace and in a setting that fosters learning. Classes take place in the morning hours of a five-day week, leaving the remainder of the time free for study and leisure, and for networking with colleagues in a setting of striking natural beauty.
The Cape Cod Institute was founded by Gilbert Levin, Ph.D. while a professor at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Gil is a clinical and social psychologist who has been a researcher, teacher, and program developer for more than 50 years. At Einstein he was an active teacher of medical students and psychiatric residents and led a college wide initiative to bring the social and behavioral sciences to bear on medical education and research. In 1979 he founded one of the nation’s first health psychology doctoral programs. He is now professor emeritus in the departments of epidemiology and psychiatry. In 2017, Gil stepped into an advisory role at the Institute, passing the Chief Executive title to his son, Alex Levin. Alex has had a strategic and technical role at the Institute since 2003, working closely with Gil and the rest of the team. Alex has a technology background, and worked at early internet companies like Prodigy and Meca Software, and spent many years building financial applications for General Electric.
The Institute is administered by Cape Learning Network, LLC. CLN's mission is to make a difference in the lives of people, organizations, and communities by providing excellent, timely and lively education. The courses that comprise the Cape Cod Institute are sponsored and accredited by Cape Learning Network, Professional Learning Network and by the Milton Erickson Foundation.

Our primary mission at Between Sessions Resources is to bring mental health professionals practical evidenced-based tools to use with their clients. But we’re also concerned with what YOU do between sessions, and so we decided to build a community of partners who offer other services to therapists and counselors, such as training, supervision, e-learning books, practicebuilding ideas, and more. Each week we’ll be featuring several of our partners on this blog. If you’d like to share your resources with our community, please sign-up.
