Dr. Curt Thompson

Curt Thompson, M.D., is a psychiatrist in private practice in Falls Church, Virginia and founder of Being Known, which develops teaching programs, seminars and resource materials to help people explore the connection between interpersonal neurobiology and Christian spirituality which lead to genuine change and transformation.

Dr. Thompson is the author of Anatomy of the Soul (2010), which demonstrates how insights from interpersonal neurobiology resonate with biblical truths about God and creation—validating the deep human need for meaningful relationships as a key to a life of hope and fulfillment. He has also produced a video series entitled Knowing and Being Known: The Transforming Power of Relationships which provides a detailed journey through Dr. Thompson’s discoveries on these themes.

Thompson 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, and in addition to clinical supervision he facilitates ongoing education 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.

For the past several years, that interest has taken a more specific turn as he gained expertise in the emerging field of interpersonal neurobiology. Dr. Thompson believes the findings of interpersonal neurobiology point to important tenets of Christian faith that enable us to reflect on, understand, and experience that same faith in fresh, trustworthy ways. He is now creating a platform for educating clinicians, individuals, and groups through training materials, seminars and other resources.
