Course Descriptions

 

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

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.

 

Subtle Energy Devices and Research

This laboratory survey course overviews the following electrophysiological “subtle energy” related devices.  The AMI, Apparatus for Meridian Identification, invented by Dr. Hiroshi Motoyama the founder of CIHS;  The GDV/EPI, Gas Discharge Visualization/Electro Photonic Imaging, Bio-Well and Sputnik which are devices invented by Konstantine Korotkoff;  The EIS, Electrode Interstitial Scanner, device invented by Albert Maarek; and a conventional Biofeedback system.  The devices will be demonstrated and studied as to how they operate electronically and physiologically.  Students will complete an independent laboratory study and writeup.

 

Subtle Energy System I: Consciousness, Dynamics & the Subtle Body

The subtle body is a dynamic system unique to each individual yet universal in nature.

This course focuses on selected approaches to the dynamics of the subtle body system.

The course explores the etheric, astral, mental, and causal bodies, the subtle senses the soul and the supersensible, the essential role the subtle body plays in health and healing, and the complex yet fundamental way subtle systems illuminate the forms and functions of life.

*Lab Fee, $120, required at the time of course registration

 

Introduction to Consciousness Studies (BIS students)

The course draws upon investigations and models concerning the nature, types, and levels of consciousness, drawn from various religious traditions, yoga, mysticism, spirituality, shamanism, Jungian psychology, and parapsychology. It also explores the nature of transcendent consciousness, or super consciousness from spiritual traditions, as well as the practices used in the various traditions to attain these states.

 

Consciousness Studies

The course explores paradigms of the nature of consciousness drawn from science, philosophy, social sciences and transpersonal studies, which include various religious traditions, spirituality, yoga, Jungian psychology, and parapsychology.

 

Neuroscience / Psychology & Spirituality

The course covers the structure and function of cells and interconnections that comprise the nervous system and the behaviors that arise from them. The course will explain how information enters the nervous system through our senses, is processed in the central nervous system, and is output through the motor system and autonomic system. The course includes emotional and cognitive behavior and the biological bases of mental health/illness. The biological basis of energy psychology will also be addressed.

 

Forms of neuropathology and of non-neurological illnesses that affect the brain can produce detrimental psychological changes in affect, thought, and behavior. Mistaking psychological consequences of somatic disease for psychopathology is a substantial problem in medicine, psychiatry, and clinical psychology. The course examines somatic illnesses that may masquerade as psychopathology and familiarizes students with techniques for detecting neuropathology, and distinguishing between somatic and psychopathology.

 

Human Sexuality II: Advanced Energetic Consideration

This course will explore various forms of sexual expression, psychosexual wounding, healthy sexuality, conscious sexuality development and evolution, and the relationship between spirituality and sexuality.  Students will engage in exercises designed to explore their sexuality, sexual psyche, and sexual development.  The course will also include various sexual philosophies, models of sexual expression, conscious sexual development, and psychosexual/psychospiritual healing.

 

Psychology of Mind/Body Energy

Updating

 

Psychology of Personality

The psychology of personality examines several broad approaches to personality development and organization relevant to research and clinical assessment. Behavioral, psychodynamic, transpersonal, and cognitive-behavioral and trait theories are reviewed. This course views the approaches in historical, philosophical, practical, and methodological perspectives, and considers the roles of biology, society, culture, and interpersonal environment in shaping personality. Substance Abuse: Assessment, Intervention, and Treatment.

 

Introduction to Qualitative and Quantitative Research

The Research Methods course provides a brief introduction to various forms of research methods, both quantitative and qualitative. An overview is presented of the quantitative and qualitative research methods and designs applicable to the systematic analysis of the varieties of medical treatments and human experiences. Scientific problem-solving will be emphasized to include observational techniques and measurement tools, coding, analytic strategies, and reporting of research. The course will encourage students to focus on research that has been used in their fields of interest, and to develop a research proposal for a topic of their choice.

 

Topic of Special Interest: Clinical Aspects of Violence Prevention in Organizations and the Creation of Safe Communities, and a Cohesive Culture,

A fundamental challenge of our times is to overcome the inertia, lack of vision, and partisanship that allows the continuing creation of a divisive culture and institutional practices that fuel violence and division. This class explores how the clinical aspects of violence prevention are reflected in the institutional policies of the workplace and of schools as well as in our larger culture. The class will provide productive insights into how to move our institutions and way of life towards an integral consciousness that can be the foundation for a way of life that embodies our aspirations for safety, peace and justice.

This class draws upon my own experience as an activist and community organizer, as a researcher and trainer in school violence prevention, as a local elected official in my local community, and as an experienced psychologist and healer. Credit is available for all CIHS students as an elective. Community members and those in the helping professions who are interested in violence prevention, peacemaking and building community are invited to audit this class.

 

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.
