The Norman Vincent Peale Awards for Positive Thinking
Celebrating Mental and Spiritual Health
Blanton-Peale Institute & Counseling Center is proud to host and present the Norman Vincent Peale Awards for Positive Thinking. Dr. Peale, after whom the awards are named, founded Blanton-Peale, along with Dr. Smile Blanton. Dr. Peale authored the groundbreaking book, The Power of Positive Thinking. Dr. Blanton, a psychiatrist, was psychoanalyzed and trained by Sigmund Freud. Together, in 1937 they founded Blanton-Peale, combining psychology and spirituality – two disciplines that had been considered at odds with each other.
The Norman Vincent Peale Awards Gala is a night to celebrate mental and spiritual health, destigmatize mental health challenges, and raise funds that are crucial to our promise to turn no one away due to an inability to pay. The generous support of our donors enables struggling New Yorkers to find healing, growth and transformation through their work with a Blanton-Peale therapist
Our evening together on November 9, 2020 will be an inspiring and celebratory evening of “Mental & Spiritual Health: Healing, Growing, Flourishing.” We look forward to remembering Blanton-Peale’s history and to sharing with you the future we see ahead of us. A future of growth and transformation.
