Format: Campus

Program Description:

Students interested in the M.A./Ph.D. Depth Psychology program with an emphasis in Somatic Studies have a variety of interests, experiences, and callings that have led them to believe that in order to study the psyche one must give primary attention to the body--its sensibilities, movements, symptoms, and many ways of healing. Prospective students come from many different backgrounds--some with established healing practices, some with a passion for researching this new field, and some with a desire to move forward in their study of depth psychology with the lived experience of the body as the primary focus. Students in the Somatic Studies specialization: • Read, interpret, and critically reflect upon the theories and traditions of Depth Psychology, remembering the body and recalling its voice • Develop the capacity and skill to maintain awareness of and connection to the unconscious • Learn techniques and practices of dream work, body movement, and active imagination as healing practices • Develop literacy in the emerging domain of neuroscience as it applies of Depth Psychology and somatic studies • Develop skills in research and writing that will support their efforts to articulate and promote effective healing practices • Participate with likeminded scholars and healers in the expansion of a new exciting field This program is offered in a low-residency format. While on campus students have the opportunity to participate in a traditional graduate setting, with lectures, presentations and one on one interaction with the faculty and other cohort members.
