Faculty of Psychology

 

The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be. All our dreams can come true.

 

Psychology is a relatively new science that is in constant evolution. There are many therapies and approaches within psychology that have not been properly addressed by the traditional university and that can be studied through Bircham International University distance learning degree programs.

The requirements for the psychotherapy professional practice vary depending on the country. The practice of psychology is generally monitored by professional associations supervised in some extent by the government. Membership into these associations is, in certain cases, voluntary or even unnecessary depending on the psychotherapeutic approach used. PNL, Gestalt, Psychoanalysis, Psychotherapy, Counseling do not often require any official accreditation. BIU advice to any professional psychotherapist is to verify if his or her counseling approach requires any regulation. A BIU distance learning degree program constitutes a good way to provide a solid support to your career as a professional psychotherapist.

More importance is given to what is being experienced at each moment than what happened and/or should have happened. In the Gestalt psychotherapy, both the therapist and the client communicate. The difference in their perspectives opens the door for further experimentation and dialogue. The goal is for the client to become aware of his actions (what he is doing and how he is doing it) and his being (how he can change himself and how to appraise and accept it). More info...

By modeling behavior, John Grinder and Richard Bandler were able to discern the thinking patterns that resulted in an individual's success.

What emerged from their work constitutes what is currently known as NLP. More info...
