Program Description

Ethereal Doctor of Psychology in Grief Counseling

Are you interested in a career as a grief counselor? There is a high demand for this profession in the job market. People worldwide need grief counselors to help them deal with trauma or painful events that happened to them in their lives. Because of this, you won’t have trouble finding employment as a grief counselor if you have the proper education credentials.

American International Theism University has a Doctorate Degree in Grief Counseling program available to students who currently possess a Master’s Degree in Grief Counseling or an equivalent subject. If you meet this requirement, you can get your Doctorate Degree in Grief Counseling in one year. We’ve created an online platform where students can take multiple classes over the internet and earn their Doctorate Degree in Grief Counseling much faster.

The courses taught in our Doctorate Degree program include Psychotherapy, Grief Counseling, Treating Complicated Grief, Ethical Issues in Grief Therapy, Treatment Planning in Grief Therapy, Trauma and Loss, Terminally Ill, Grief Counseling Groups and so much more. At the end of the program, you will have to write your Doctoral Thesis in Grief Counseling. After you do that and receive a passing grade, you will be awarded a Doctorate Degree in Grief Counseling.

Why is it important to earn your Doctorate Degree? Although a Master’s Degree in Grief Counseling can certainly impress employers, you could always take one step further by impressing them with a Doctorate Degree. There aren’t too many professional grief counselors who can call themselves doctors. They usually stop their education after a Master’s Degree because they’re so busy starting their careers and getting them off the ground.

Well, you can still start your career and study to become a Doctor of Grief Counseling at the same time. That is the luxury in which an online education gives to our students. The American International Theism University is 100% accredited and authorized to award Doctorate Degrees in Grief Counseling. There is no difference in value between a Doctorate Degree earned online, and a Doctorate Degree earned in-person. Your diploma will not indicate that the degree was earned online.

Employers just want to know that you have the knowledge to work for them as a professional grief counselor. Once you show them your Doctorate Degree from American International Theism University, they will be more than convinced.
