The program discusses the limitations of traditional talk therapy and psychotherapy and uses philosophical wisdom to cope with life's struggles; be it a specific problem and/or general depression. The application of Kant's categorical imperative to solve a relationship problem and/or Hindusim to handle a midlife crisis as though they balms for different body parts may sound controversial to introspective people. However, the true message here resides in the necessity for everybody to have their own philosophy because a meaningless life is unworthy or at least hard to carry on. In this context, this program proves invaluable for those lonely people struggling with their problems in an incoherent world.

Human Development
This course introduces the theory, the empirical research, and the applied issues in developmental psychology. It discusses the social, psychological, cultural, emotional, and spiritual aspects of development and stresses on the applications of these theories to counseling. Students are encouraged to revisit their own developmental path.
Academic Supervisor : Catherine Wanjiru Gachutha

Religion
This course offers an academic study of religion and emphasizes the following topics: common dimensions of religious experience, the interaction of religion and culture, theoretical accounts for religious belief and experience, the religious responses to archetypal problems of human experience, and the religious expression in myth, ritual, symbol, and social organization.
Academic Supervisor : Richard Kaplan

The Search for Meaning
This course focuses on the relationship between problems and the meaning individuals seeks in life. Distinction is made between philosophy and spirituality. It explores the stages of psychological and spiritual development of the individual and the methods for evoking meaning and purpose in life.
Academic Supervisor : Francisco Yuste Pausa

Philosophic Trends
This course explores the foundations of the major philosophical trends and their representative philosophers. It addresses the practical similarities and differences between these philosophers and the methods they use to solve human problems.
Academic Supervisor : Carmen Ramirez Hurtado

Spiritual Wellness
This course distinguishes between religion, theology, and spirituality. It discusses the developmental stages of an individual spirituality and its relationship with health from the world religions perspective. It evaluates the effectiveness of the practices used in spiritual wellness and investigates how spirituality affects people lives.
Academic Supervisor : Richard Kaplan

Philosophy of Mind
This course examines the central problems of mind philosophy from a multi-disciplinary perspective, including the mind-body problem, the nature of mental states, intention and representation, sensation and consciousness, and related topics.
Academic Supervisor : Elena Lorente Rodríguez

Soul Therapy
The course suggests that traditional talk therapy and psychotherapy have their limitations. It recommends using philosophical wisdom as a way to cope with life, whether it be a specific problem and/or or general depression. Applying Kant's categorical imperative to a relationship problem and then Hindusim to a midlife crisis; as though they were creams for different parts of the body may strike thoughtful people as contrived. The real message is that it is necessary to have your own philosophy, because the unexamined life is not worth living (or a least a lot harder,). This course may prove invaluable to people who feel as though they are alone, struggling with their problems, in an incoherent universe.
Academic Supervisor : Philomena Wavinya Ndambuki
