Ph.D. in Depth Psychology with an Emphasis in Psychotherapy
Pacifica Graduate Institute’s Ph.D. in Depth Psychology with Emphasis in Psychotherapy is a training program that is centered on the psyche.
Informed by Jungian and psychoanalytic thought, integrating the best offerings of current psychological theory and exciting new findings that enrich our understanding of mind and body, this program challenges its students to find and develop their own unique talents as therapists, and to participate in re-imagining psychotherapy for the 21st century.
