At the California Institute for Human Science, Students Benefit From A Holistic Approach to Clinical Psychology

As a friend of CIHS, you know that our mission as a Mind-Body Consciousness university bridges science and spirituality. We are proud to highlight our MA and Ph.D. programs in Clinical Psychology. The academic course load merges metaphysics and the study of mind-body-spirit to provide students with a holistic educational foundation. 

Students at CIHS will be prepared for scientific research, practitioner roles and doctoral studies through the clinical psychology program. They will learn how to understand the multidimensional human spirit and apply transdisciplinary research, theory, and praxis for effective counseling in traditional and non-traditional settings. 

The Ph.D. program includes state course requirements for licensure and personalized elective opportunities, and it features a traditional psychology curriculum with a greater emphasis on consciousness and spirituality for holistic wellness. Classes unique to the program include: Mind-Body and Energy is Psychology, Sociocultural Influences and Intervention Strategies, Introduction to Energy Psychology, Pranic Healing, Psychology of the Chakras, and many more.

“Students who undergo study in the clinical psychology program are better able to act as stewards of humanity because they’re able to view people and the world at large through a broader lens of understanding,” Dr. Thomas Brophy, President of CIHS, said. “Incorporating the mind-body-spirit connection in clinical psychology study truly sets this program apart and better prepares students for real-world challenges.”

The Center for Lifelong Learning Presents: EFT and Your Relationship with Risk
Tuesday, February 22nd, 6pm PST

Upcoming webinar! Join us to explore your relationship with risk and how Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) can transform the barriers keeping you from achieving your goals. During these times of uncertainty EFT is a valuable tool to support change. Join Michelle Leuschen to learn and explore the many possibilities EFT has to offer!
How often have you thought to yourself, “If only I wasn’t afraid to take that risk, I could reach my goal or dream”. For instance, “If I wasn’t afraid to open my heart, I could have that relationship I’ve been wanting.” Or, “If I wasn’t afraid to ask for a raise, I would be able to buy that boat I’ve been dreaming about”. Have you ever considered which comes first, risk or trust? Do you find yourself needing to trust before you risk, or do you risk something in order to trust? And consider how closely risk and vulnerability are linked, without one, how can we have the other? Isn’t being vulnerable truly a risk? The common denominator is fear, and in a world where fear often rules our conscious and unconscious behavior, we may find ourselves reluctant to trust, to be vulnerable, or to take the risks we need in order to expand our life. Fear of risk often keeps us from a bigger life, a life of more growth and possibility.
In the class, EFT and Your Relationship with Risk, we will explore the impact that fear has on our ability to risk. Participants will learn how to apply Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT, tapping) to determine whether or not their fear is a wise signal, or if their fear is keeping them from a “high value” risk. The power of the course will be when participants experience for themselves how EFT can reduce or eliminate their fear. REGISTER HERE
