Toni Goertz Introducing PSI

POST-TRAINING ENGAGEMENT

Graduates of our two-year programme would be equipped to facilitate healing and give counseling support to pastoral agents and others suffering from depression, trauma, confusion, burn-out, mid-life crisis, addiction, sexual abuse, and crisis on account of sudden loses or life transitions. Apart from serving as Therapists for those in distress, graduates of the P.S.I. programme would be a useful resource in Seminaries, Formation Houses and Vocation Committees of Dioceses and Religious Congregations.

OVERALL VISION

The overall vision is to bring spiritual healing, personality integration and peace to those in difficult life situations, as well as foster enhanced self-awareness and ongoing personal growth and transformation among pastoral agents and the entire Christian faithful.

TRAINING CENTRES

The first Training Centre of the Psycho-Spiritual Institute is located at the Marist International University in the Karen area of Nairobi, Kenya.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Admission is open to candidates with a minimum of First Degree in the Psychological Sciences. Candidates with no background in Psychology, but with a good degree in any of the Sacred or Social Sciences may however be considered for admission - with the understanding that in the course of the two year programme, they will pay for and undergo each Summer time a six weeks’ “Bridging Course” that has been designed to make up for the shortfall.

PSI provides for two broad categories of students: Residential and Non-Residential. The former refers to in-campus students who pay for tuition as well as room and board, while the latter refers to off-campus students who find themselves their own accommodation within Nairobi and pay only tuition fees and other minor charges. This is however very stressful for the candidates as the course is designed to be full-time, and fully engaging!

METHODOLOGY

Drawing from the best of the Christian spiritual tradition, and using up-to-date psychotherapeutic tools, approaches and methodologies for healing troubled minds, and taking into cognizance the peculiar African historical, religious and sociological context, PSI offers high quality professional training in an environment of faith and Christian devotion, for those who wish to function as Psycho-Spiritual Therapists and Christian Counsellors in various ecclesiastical jurisdictions and institutions across English speaking Africa. Towards this end, top level experts in Psychotherapy, Christian Anthropology and Christian Spirituality are being sourced from various institutions within and outside Africa to bring their training and practical exposure to bear on the Psycho-Spiritual Therapy training programme. Above all, the training dynamics at PSI places a lot of premium on personal spiritual growth and wholesome personality integration and transformation.
