Master of Psychotherapy and Spirituality Art Therapy
St. Stephen's Collegeststephenscollege.ca
The Master of Psychotherapy and Spirituality (MPS) program develops professional counsellors and psychotherapists who are well grounded in the integration of psychological and spiritual knowledge as a holistic foundation for effective therapeutic practice. This program is open to people from all faith traditions.
The MPS is a unique degree program that has been developed in response to an expressed need for formal graduate counselling training that integrates psychology and spirituality. This academic program blends theoretical knowledge and clinical skills with particular emphasis on the individual student’s ability to integrate diverse learning perspectives with their personal growth, and to implement this integration into effective clinical practice. The MPS program has been designed for those who see professional counselling as both an aptitude and calling, and who want to include spiritual awareness and perspectives in their therapeutic understanding as well as their skills development.
