Course Description

Transpersonal Psychology is a field or school of thought in psychology centered on the spiritual aspects of human life. The term Transpersonal Psychology was first introduced in the 1960s by psychologists such as Abraham Maslow and Victor Frankl.

Transpersonal therapy is transformational in that it explores the whole person with special attention to how states of consciousness contribute to such an approach. This course will review eight core aspects of transpersonal therapy and applications.
