ABOUT CIIS

Located in the heart of San Francisco, the California Institute of Integral Studies was the first accredited university in North America to offer programs that connect the insights of Western psychology with Eastern spirituality. The PsyD Program, which currently enrolls over 150 full-time and part-time students, is carefully designed to prepare students for practice-focused careers in clinical psychology. A practitioner-scholar training model provides broad and general education in clinical psychology that, in addition, integrates depth-psychological, societal, ecological, and spiritual dimensions of human experience into the curriculum. Our distinctive approach to clinical psychology training is guided by a vision of clinical practice that emphasizes a holistic and relational approach to the human condition. We teach students the value of open inquiry into self and other. At the center of this inquiry is the whole person who exists in relationship with other persons, with communities, with cultural meaning systems, and with nature. Consistent with the visionary CIIS mission, we view the educational process itself as holistic and relational, and we aspire to "walk our talk" as a learning community - one that is creative and transformative on both personal and professional levels.
