The diploma in Spiritual Care and Psychotherapy* will build on your previous education and experience to teach you a unique form of therapy that utilizes spiritual and psychological understandings of healing and growth. Whether you want to become a therapist, or expand your knowledge of research and best practices in spiritual care and psychotherapy, this diploma will help you meet your professional and career goals.
The diploma is intended for practicing professionals who are looking for further educational opportunities. The diploma without additional graduate level education will not qualify a student to apply for professional certification or become a member of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. Students who are interested in entering the field of Spiritual Care and Psychotherapy should make application directly to the Master of Arts (MA) in Theology: Spiritual Care and Psychotherapy.
This diploma can be completed as a full- or part-time student in a minimum of one year and a maximum of two years.
The diploma consists of six half-credit counselling courses that can be taken from the current Waterloo Lutheran Seminary course offerings or from other faculties at Laurier (with permission from the instructor). All courses within the diploma are elective courses, allowing the greatest degree of flexibility for course selection to meet your needs.
