Ph.D. in Depth Psychology with an Emphasis in Psychotherapy

Format: Campus

Program Description:

This doctoral specialization cultivates an integrative approach to professional development in the art and science of therapeutic practice. Working with leading faculty, Pacifica students engage in a journey of personalized education that fosters advanced therapeutic skills and practices, and which supports them in making important and original scholarly contributions to their fields.

For established and emerging practitioners, we invite you to join a diverse group of academic and practice-oriented professionals who are called to deepen their therapeutic work through an integrative study of healing based on the visionary aspects of depth psychology. Become a part of a learning community focused on exploring the critical connections between psychology, spirituality, and healing.

We welcome students with a deep personal calling to their therapeutic work, individuals with profound curiosity about themselves and the world, and lifelong learners devoted to a transformative engagement with the numinous, the psyche, and the natural world.

In three-day residential learning retreats surrounded by the natural landscape of Pacifica’s Lambert campus, students and faculty work together to integrate essential healing traditions and contemporary research—drawing from indigenous and ancient practices, multicultural and contemporary perspectives, and emerging science on human experience and consciousness.
