Postgraduate Training Program
The Southeast Institute for Group and Family Therapy Postgraduate Training Program offers a unique opportunity for personal and professional growth. If you are ready to immerse yourself in an enriching environment that offers both nurture and challenge, we have a program designed just for you.
We created the one-year Postgraduate Training Program for professionals with an advanced degree in a discipline related to the study and practice of psychotherapy. This program is for those psychotherapists working with children, individuals, couples, families, and groups who want to deepen their personal journey to expand their professional journey. To that end, we offer an experiential program that builds on your strengths, cultivates your inner wisdom, fosters confidence, and offers personal healing.
You will be challenged to grow and develop resources to become competent therapists and more powerful agents of change — in your life, in your work, and at all levels of society.
Southeast Institute for Group and Family Therapy has a nearly 50-year history of creating models for personal, professional, and social change. Vann Joines, PhD, and Emily Keller, PhD, Director and Co-Director of Southeast Institute are both dedicated to living authentically and inviting society to align with its essential truth — that all people have worth, value, and dignity.
By becoming a scholar in our Postgraduate Program, not only will you be joining our legacy of change-makers, you will get around 200 hours of therapy and interpersonal supervision and around 148 hours of CE credits (NBCC and APA; Some RPT) for $7995!
Separately, the same programs cost a total of $15,835.
Postgraduates save $7840 for a year of psychotherapy training!
The Postgraduate Training will increase to $8995 in the 2018-2019 academic year. Because most postgraduates continue for two years, those who sign up this year at $7995 will lock in that price for the 2018-2019 year!
Play Therapy Training is a New Addition to the Postgraduate Program
Even if you don’t work with children, you will benefit from the play therapy training. Dr. Keller has designed the programs to be experiential and to promote self discovery and healing for all participants. Furthermore, she incorporates theory so that those therapists working with adults, couples, families, and groups can easily translate the play therapy skills into their work.
For personal growth, postgraduates enjoy around 200 hours of therapy and interpersonal supervision with:
- Weekly group therapy with Dr. Joines and Dr. Keller (Meets Tuesdays from 4:30 – 6:30 PM)
