Visit East-West Psychology Ph.D. Curriculum to see a Dual Ph.D./Certificate Program sample schedule. Comprehensive Examinations During the final year of coursework, doctoral students enroll in two comprehensive examinations designed to demonstrate the student’s knowledge in the program area. For their first comprehensive examination, students take an Advanced Seminar where they need to show mastery of their area of specialization in both an oral presentation and a research paper. The second comprehensive examination takes place at the last Research Colloquia taken by the student, and takes the form of a methodological reflection essay discussing the research method to be used in the dissertation. Alternative Multi-Paper Dissertation Format In addition to the standard format for doctoral dissertations, the department allows for the use of an alternative format that consists of three peer-reviewed papers (two of which must have been published or accepted for publcation; the other is to be either published, accepted for publication, or under review) as the main basis for the dissertation. Students wanting to pursue the multi-paper dissertation format are assessed by the faculty program committee on a case-by-case basis. As with the traditional dissertation, a dissertation proposal is submitted, a committee of three members is formed, and a dissertation defense is held according to existing policies. Ph.D. Full-Time Sample Schedule Duration: Two years of coursework plus dissertation. Note: Students who do not have a background in East-West psychology are required to take up to 12 additional units of courses drawn from the EWP core courses and directed electives, minus equivalencies. Sample: Emphasis on Ecopsychology/Transpersonal Psychology (plus 3 additional units from EWP core courses) Teaching Assistantships A limited number of paid teaching assistantships is available every semester. Possible responsibilities include facilitation of experiential learning, teaching portions of the class, working with students outside the classroom on projects, miscellaneous administrative and logistic tasks, providing feedback to the faculty member on student learning and perceptions, and reading student papers and giving feedback (but not as the only reader). EWP Internships An internship is an opportunity to integrate career-related experience into an academic education through on-the-job training rather than merely employment. Internships are typically a means for students to gain practical experience in their chosen field in a supervised professional work environment.

PhD in Integral and Transpersonal Psychology

California Institute of Integral Studies
Online & Campus Combined Full time September 2017 USA San Francisco

Transpersonal psychology is a transformative psychology of the whole person in intimate relationship with a diverse, interconnected, and evolving world. [+]

PhD in Integral and Transpersonal Psychology Transpersonal psychology is a transformative psychology of the whole person in intimate relationship with a diverse, interconnected, and evolving world. It pays particular attention to states of consciousness associated with spiritual, mystical, and other exceptional human experiences that seem to promote healing, transformation, and connection to the larger world. As a psychology situated in community and world, transpersonal affirms the value of social action and ecological stewardship. Because our relationships are global, a transpersonal approach challenges the false norms of a psychology that is situated in any one meaning frame. Transpersonal’s initial mission to include more than one valid state of consciousness can now be extended to embrace many ways of being human as reflected in culture, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, spiritual path, and ways of knowing. The integral vision of a whole-person psychology can blossom into a psychology of humanity that celebrates our differences as much as it honors what we hold in common. The notion that spirituality is an aspect if the human being apart from any specific religion is an idea that comes directly from transpersonal psychology, and it was the first field to examine the practices of Eastern spirituality, such as mindfulness, from a psychological perspective. Transpersonal was also the first psychology to study psychedelics, a field that is now coming back to the attention of mainstream researchers. As an outgrowth of humanistic psychology, it is part of the movement that almost single-handedly invented the field of personal growth and development. As a whole-person psychology, it resonates with the values and perspectives of the complementary and alternative medicine movement, which has become a major force in healthcare. Integral psychology is concerned with exploring and understanding the totality of human consciousness and personality. It seeks to unify the personal, interpersonal, and transpersonal dimensions of human experience to achieve wholeness of personality, multicultural harmony, and collective transformation. Integral psychology was first developed by Indra Sen based on the practical and transformative aspects of Sri Aurobindo’s integral yoga psychology. Later formulations of integral psychology were offered by CIIS founder Dr. Haridas Chaudhuri, who developed his own unique approach, and others including Brant Cortright, who has developed a synthesis of Sri Aurobindo’s thought with the three major streams of Western psychology—behavioral, psychoanalytic, and humanistic-existential—in the context of integral psychotherapy. Career Outcomes There are three main groups of students for whom this degree is well suited. One such group is those with an existing profession who wish to advance their education and contribute to the development of better research and scholarship in their professional areas of work, such as psychotherapists, social workers, psychologists, counselors, consultants, activists, organizers, leaders, teachers, researchers, nurses, physicians, lawyers, or others in fields related to personal development, social change, or environmental protection. Another group consists of individuals who are entrepreneurially oriented, and who may wish to use their degree as the basis for consulting or writing and teaching in the public arena about their area of expertise. In addition, some students wish to pursue a PhD as a means to more fully developing their personal gifts and potentials. Apply to the PhD in Integral and Transpersonal Psychology Applicants must have a master's degree from a regionally-accredited institution either in an area of the humanities such as psychology, sociology, anthropology, or education, or in a field that is directly related to their proposed area of dissertation study.

Clinical Psychology (PsyD) Program at CIIS

Campus Full time Part time 3 - 4 years September 2017 USA San Francisco + 1 more

Doctors of Philosophy in Clinical Psychology in California in USA. The Clinical Psychology (PsyD) Program at CIIS The PsyD Program at CIIS is unique. Located in the heart of San Francisco, ours was the first accredited university in North America to offer programs that connect the insights of Western psychology with Eastern spirituality. We continue today to present a dynamic clinical psychology curriculum that combines the latest scientific research with the world's great wisdom traditions. We believe that such a synthesis permits deep understanding of the human condition, as well as insight into the most effective ways of helping those in need. The PsyD Program is carefully designed to prepare students for practice-focused careers in clinical psychology. As a member of the National Council of Schools and Programs of Professional Psychology (NCSPP), our practitioner-scholar training model provides broad and general education in clinical psychology that, in addition, integrates depth-psychological, societal, ecological, and spiritual dimensions of human experience into the curriculum. Full time students who enter the program with Regular Standing (those who enter with a BA) typically take three to four years to complete coursework. This is followed by the internship, which takes one year if it is a full-time internship (about forty hours a week), two years if it is a part-time internship (about twenty hours a week). The dissertation also follows coursework and, while it is possible to complete the dissertation in one year, students typically take two years to complete and write up their research. Realistically, a full time student admitted with Regular standing can expect to complete the degree in five to seven years, depending on their choice of internship and the nature of their dissertation project. Advanced - standing students (those who enter with a Master's degree in Psychology, or the equivalent) have the option of completing the program in four years, with three years of reduced-load coursework and concurrent dissertation work, followed by one year of internship. The majority of Advanced Standing students take four and a half to five years to complete the degree Our distinctive approach to clinical psychology training is guided by a vision of clinical practice that emphasizes a holistic and relational approach to the human condition. We teach students the value of open inquiry into self and other. At the center of this inquiry is the whole person who exists in relationship with other persons, with communities, with cultural meaning systems, and with nature. We believe that psychological suffering often has to do with the fracturing of these crucial relationships. Consistent with the visionary CIIS mission, we view the educational process itself as holistic and relational, and we aspire to “walk our talk” as a learning community – one that is creative and transformative on both personal and professional levels. Our course offerings reflect the broad-minded, integrative perspective pioneered at CIIS decades ago. Alan Watts, a leading figure in the transmission of Eastern spirituality to the West, described the American Academy of Asian Studies (which later became CIIS) as “one of the principal roots of what later came to be known, in the early sixties, as the San Francisco Renaissance." During that time, the Bay Area became synonymous with new currents in psychology that continue to transform the field. Like CIIS’s founders, our faculty and students continue to work at psychology’s cutting edge, in its deepest traditions, and toward the project of realizing our most profound human potentials. CIIS is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges Senior College and University Commission (WASC-SASC). The PsyD Program is a member of the National Council of Schools and Programs of Professional Psychology (NCSPP). Graduates of the PsyD program at CIIS are eligible for licensure as psychologists in California and many other states. The San Francisco Bay Area is at the forefront of change in psychology, especially at CIIS. We welcome you to come visit us and learn more about the CIIS/Bay Area psychology experience. Clinical Psychology (PsyD) Program Licensure Graduates of the PsyD program at CIIS are eligible for licensure as psychologists in California and many other states. In fact, over the last five years, according to the EPPP published data, CIIS students scored higher on the national examination than graduates of any APA approved PsyD program in the Bay Area. Apply to the Clinical Psychology (PsyD) Program Emphasizing preparation for clinical practice this program combines rigorous scholarship, supervised clinical experience and practica and internships. PsyD students fulfill a diversity and identity competency requirement by taking three courses connecting clinical practice with culture and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, and religion and spirituality. For field experience students can apply to over 90 community agencies, serving a diverse mix of clients. Additionally, they have access to the Institute's exciting array of public programs. Our training philosophy comprises four components: learning in a multicultural context, which integrates practica and classroom work a relational model of learning and training significant reflection on one's clinical practice broad range of scholarship Admission Requirements Admission Application Non-refundable $65 Application Fee Degree Requirement: An undergraduate degree (BA, BS, or the equivalent) from an accredited college or university in Psychology or 12 semester units/18 quarter units of Psychology course work Academic Prerequisites: 12 semester units/18 quarter units of Psychology course work including a Statistics course. Transcripts: Official transcripts from all accredited academic institutions attended within the United States. Transcripts must arrive in their official, sealed envelopes. Minimum GPA of 3.0 at the undergraduate degree-granting institution - for final 60 semester units or 90 quarter units of course work. Academic Writing Sample: A writing sample of eight to ten pages (typed, double-spaced) that demonstrates your capacity to think critically and reflectively and demonstrates graduate level writing abilities. A sample that uses outside sources must include proper citations. You may submit copies of previous work, such as a recent academic paper, article, or report that reflects scholarly abilities. Two Letters of Recommendation: Letters of recommendation will be accepted from academic advisors, professors, professional supervisors, or someone able to attest to your maturity, motivation, and ability to undertake the work required for the PsyD Program.

Autobiographical Statement: A four-to-six page (typed, double-spaced) self-reflective, lifespan autobiographical statement discussing your values, emotional and spiritual insights, aspirations, and life experiences that have led to the decision to apply to the PsyD program. International students and individuals who have studied at institutions outside the US and Canada may have additional requirements. Advanced Standing A limited number of Advanced Standing students who have completed an MA or MS degree in psychology (or equivalent) with a GPA of 3.25 and completed 500 practicum hours may be admitted each year. Advanced Standing students complete a reduced number of units in a program that is designed on a case by case basis depending on prior graduate coursework. Students admitted with Advanced Standing must complete all required courses at CIIS or demonstrate prior completion through submission and review of syllabi from prior coursework. Spring Admission into the Psychology Doctoral Program Once accepted into the PsyD program, a limited number of students have the option to enroll in some courses for the spring or summer semester before their Fall semester begins. With the approval of the PsyD department, students can enroll in selected courses prior to commencement of the fall semester, later to join the fall cohort. Students who employ this option reduce the number of courses required during their first and/or second years of study. This option may provide greater latitude to curriculum planning for individual students. Students who begin to take classes in the spring or summer semesters are considered members of the student cohort that officially begins in the fall semester of the year that they are admitted and will move through the practicum sequence with that cohort.

Sofia University
Campus Full time September 2017 USA Palo Alto

Our program combines experiential learning with serious academic inquiry and our graduates become transpersonal scholars, transpersonally-oriented therapists and healers, transformative educators, and change agents in various social and organizational contexts. [+]

If you are a self-motivated learner who grapples with the challenges of our time and seeks to make positive change in the world, this program is for you. Our program combines experiential learning with serious academic inquiry and our graduates become transpersonal scholars, transpersonally-oriented therapists and healers, transformative educators, and change agents in various social and organizational contexts. Coursework includes intensive inquiry in transpersonal philosophy, theory and research; a research methods sequence that prepares students for dissertation work on a chosen topic; and integrative and transformational educational experiences of community-building and applied learning through retreats and a community praxis sequence. This on-campus program provides the container for you to be a part of a diverse learning community. Our program offers five concentrations: Consciousness and Creativity Studies Behavioral Science Ecopsychology Somatic Psychology Research Methods in Psychology Members of our faculty publish in diverse areas of inquiry including exceptional human experiences, consciousness studies, creativity, comparative religions, and the interface of cultural studies and transpersonal psychology. Our distinctive balance of scholarly study, experiential learning, and professional development supports the work of bringing transformational concepts and practices into the world in a manner that promotes personal growth, social change, and healing in a variety of settings. What does this prepare you for? Students who complete their doctorate in transpersonal psychology go on to various professional endeavors. Those with prior professional lives often incorporate transpersonal principles into an existing practice. Along with a chosen specialization, many graduates develop a new calling after completion of the program including work as coaches, spiritual guides, educators, and change agents in nonprofit, government, and corporate environments. Consciousness and Creativity Studies Philosophers and scientists have explored the concept of consciousness for millennia, but only now do we know enough about the brain to make scientific progress on even the most basic questions. Of course much remains mysterious and probably always will. At the same time, everyone is familiar with the experience of heightened or expanded awareness and the concomitant feeling of greater connection with oneself and the wider world. Our Consciousness and Creativity Studies concentration is designed to provide a space for doctoral students to explore consciousness in its various dimensions while experimenting with spiritual technologies and creative processes that produce and are nurtured by it. Our exploration is rooted in academic inquiry, contemplative practices, entheogenic integration, and intersubjective encounters with members of our learning community. Behavioral Science The Behavioral Science concentration focuses on neuroscientific, behavioral, and cognitive psychology. In addition to these traditional topics, students are introduced to more innovative post-graduate disciplines such as neurotheology, neurophenomenology, and bioethics in the broader context of consciousness studies. Questions concerning neurological correlates of spiritual and religious experience and problems surrounding enhancement of the human brain through transformative technologies are also part of this concentration. Ecopsychology Ecopsychology approaches the human psyche as a phenomenon of nature and views all psychological and spiritual matters in the light of our participation within the life of the more-than-human world. This concentration explores the ways ecotherapy, environmental action, and ecologically responsible ways of life promote optimal mental health, well-being, and a sense of the transpersonal. Somatic Psychology Somatic psychology addresses the challenges presented to people’s lives by the rupture between the world of knowledge and the world of lived, embodied experience. It focuses on the body as the place of evolutionary intelligence, learning, and transformation. Drawing on both Eastern and Western perspectives, this concentration explores interactions between body processes and states of consciousness through a transpersonal psychological perspective. [-]
