MA in Counseling Psychology
The Somatic Psychology concentration at CIIS is one of three accredited academic programs in the United States that prepares students to use both conventional and body-oriented approaches to psychotherapy.
Students learn a counseling approach that combines traditional practice and understanding with attention to the crucial role of the body in the structure and process of the psyche. Students participate in a vibrant academic community where learning includes both didactic and experiential practices leading to the ability to work with clients holistically and effectively.
Students are introduced to various body-oriented approaches to psychotherapy, and the cultivation of body/psyche in a variety of non-Western modalities is also explored. The Somatic Psychology curriculum includes a carefully supervised practicum counseling experience. Students may apply for training at the Center for Somatic Psychotherapy, which is a counseling center devoted to practicing body-oriented psychotherapy.
Students at other practicum sites are supervised by program-approved supervisors
The coursework meets the requirements for licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) or as a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC).
