Graduate Certificate in Spiritually-Informed Psychotherapy
The Graduate Certificate in Spiritually-Informed Psychotherapy (GCSIP) is an introductory program which may be taken either as a stand-alone certificate or as a ladder to the Master of Psychotherapy and Spirituality (MPS). The GCSIP provides a flexible, yet structured, course of study for the adult learner who wishes to explore spiritual concepts and therapeutic practice. It is open to persons who are interested in the integration of psychological and spiritual knowledge, and to those who want to include spiritual awareness and perspectives in their therapeutic understanding and skill development. This program is open to people from all faith traditions.
The GCSIP may be used as a ladder into the Master of Psychotherapy and Spirituality (MPS), Master of Psychotherapy and Spirituality specialization in Art Therapy (MPS-AT), the Post-Master’s Art Therapy Certificate (PMATC), or the Master of Theological Studies (MTS) at St. Stephen’s College. For more information on this laddering process, please consult with the Department Chair/Associate Chairs of the desired program, and refer also to the ‘Laddering Graduate Certificates and Diplomas into a Master’s Degree’ policy in the Academic Policies section of the Calendar.
The GCSIP does not allow for professional certification.
