Exploring depth psychotherapy counseling.

Offered on-campus, the post-graduate certificate in Depth Psychotherapy (DP) evaluates issues of meaning, values and a just existence from a community and cultural perspective. The DP courses highlight the communal nature of the world and the powerful influences of both inherited and evolving cultural and ecological realities and narratives. The stories that shape us and the stores we create directly impact the psychological wellbeing of individuals, families and communities. The DP curriculum looks to human imagination, feeling, intuition and community dialog as essentials in addressing the basic mental health needs of our times.

The certificate is a planned program of study which includes six courses offered in an on-campus format during evenings or weekends to accommodate work schedules and allow students to complete the program in one calendar year. It is designed for community professionals with a master’s degree in counseling or closely related area of clinical psychotherapy who meet the requirements for admission to the certificate program.
