Course Descriptions

 

Aging Long-Term Care and Grief Sharon Mijares

This course encompasses aspects of the psychological problems in the geriatric study of aging including disorders of old age and infirmities, as well as their application in long-term care and sociocultural considerations. In addition, the psychotherapeutic issues in addressing issues associated with AIDS/terminal grief counseling are discussed. (4 units).

 

Academic Writing the Human Sciences *Required for all entering MA and PhD students. Ji Hyang Padma

This first course upon embarking on a CIHS education is designed to provide an introduction to critical interpretation of scholarly research and academic writing, though the lens of human science history and systems. We will review the perspectives of human science including such pioneers as William James, Roberto Assagioli, Carl Jung, William Braud, Charles Tart, Candace Pert, Stanley Krippner, Ken Wilber, Roy Bhaskar and Dr. Motoyama. Through this course students will develop fluency in APA writing style, writing composition, and engagement with scholarly references.

 

Topic of Special Interest: Consciousness Based Medicine, Randy Fauver

TBA

 

Counseling and Communication Skills, Roger Cavnaugh

Conducting effective counseling/guidance in the healing arts requires specialized skills and abilities on the part of a counselor. This core course emphasizes the fundamental aptitude for active empathic listening and responding. This course addresses the skills associated with the complex, task of grasping the point and meaning of another’s communication, which can be overlooked in traditional counseling training. (4 units)

 

Integral Spiritual Coaching, Michelle Dexter

This course is designed to educate students in a life coaching process that assists clients in integrating their spiritual nature into every aspect of their life. Professionals working from this perspective bring authenticity to their work by integrating their own spiritual nature into their daily personal and professional life. Therefore, this course will not only be informative, but necessarily experiential as well. (4 units)

 

Sociocultural Interventions and Strategies, Nick Bustos

Social psychology research has explored the diverse sociocultural influences on psychological life and action and has demonstrated that individuals are far from independent centers of initiative. This course illustrates the extent and nature of social and cultural influence that need to be taken into consideration in cross-cultural counseling and discusses appropriate techniques.

 

Substance Abuse, Sam Aganov

The course examines the extent and patterns of use and abuse of illegal, social and medical psychoactive substances and the psychosocial factors and policies that contribute to the etiology of addiction in modern Western societies. The types of therapy and rehabilitation programs as well as their short and long-term efficacy will also be discussed, along with the implications for developing an effective social policy.

(4 units)

 

Study of East/West: Metaphysics and Healing, Mali Burgess

The course explores metaphysics and healing practices among Eastern and Western religious traditions. The course explores Eastern and Western teachings through reflection, experiential exploration, dialogue, and the deepening of awareness. (4 units)

 

Human Development and Archetypes, Tamara Goldsby

The course provides the background to human development based on the six Core Archetypes of Humanness that manifest through the lifespan. Understanding of these archetypes helps inform the study of human development, including infant and child development. Why do we respond to our environment the way we do? A study in the unconscious archetypes integrated

with a traditional line of inquiry into psycho-emotional development creates an in depth course of study.

 

Pranic Healing, Mary Clark

This course provides both theory and practice preparing students to confidently interact with subtle energy to promote mental and physical health and well-being. Upon completing the course, along with a practicum, the student may take the credentialing exam in this modality. A certification fee of $100 is required. (4 units).

Introduction to Biophoton Research Gaetan Chevalier, Thomas Brophy *Intensive Lab Class format

This laboratory course presents the basic concepts of electromagnetic radiation light, photons, and the electromagnetic spectrum.  Sources of photons in nature and biology (biophotons) are considered.  Students will learn to operate a sensitive photon counter and conduct experiments in the dark and EM-shielded room. Students will design and implement an original research project with the photon counter, keep a laboratory log book, and deliver an experiment write-up and analysis.

Part I:  Laboratory Intensive

Photon DetectionWhat are the physical processes involved in photon detection?  Mechanically, how do photon counters work?  How does the specific photon detection equipment at CIHS work, and how is it operated?  How can we use basic physics knowledge to calibrate the detectors?  What levels/fluxes of photons are we capable of detecting, and distinguishing from “noise”.  Hands on calibration experiments will be conducted by the students.

Experimental Project and Biophoton Theories:  Students will develop a well-posed scientific question that can be addressed using the photon detector.  Students will design and implement an experimental procedure, to address their posed scientific question, and maintain a laboratory log book of the procedure, results, and analysis.

Part II:  Understanding Electromagnetic Radiation, and biophotons.

Lecture/presentations, and selected reading materials (either available online or distributed in class), and tailored to the backgrounds of the students, will be covered in order to develop a working knowledge of the following:  What is light?  What is the electromagnetic spectrum?  Why is light “quantized” as photons?  How are frequency and energy of photons related?  Why is the speed of light = c?  Why does an attempt to understand light involve Special Relativity?  What are sources of photons in nature?  In popular usage, what are common uses of “light” metaphorically to the physics meaning of the word, and why should we distinguish the two types of usage?

 

Various theories of biophotonic processes (in humans and biology in general) will be surveyed, including postulated relation of biophoton activity with consciousness and/or meditative/yogic practice. Students will contextualize their experimental results within selected theories.

 

Senior Project

The project is undertaken as an independent research study in consultation with their Program Director. Students will be required to present their completed work in a 40-page paper.

 

MA Thesis

A proposed topic (theoretical or research based and/or appropriate case study) that has been approved by a faculty member and academic dean can be undertaken, presented, and accepted by the supervising faculty member.
