Location: San Francisco, CA Category: Faculty Positions Posted On: Fri Sep 16 2022 Job Description:

The Integral Counseling Psychology (ICP) Program of the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) is accepting applications for two full-time faculty positions. The ICP program prepares students for the State of California MFT and LPCC licenses and a career in doing counseling and psychotherapy.

Teaching, advising and administration in the graduate program allows faculty members the opportunity to exercise broad-ranging intellectual curiosity; to work collaboratively with colleagues and students in formulating interdisciplinary inquiries; to develop and implement curriculum that addresses clinical theory and practice, cultural and contextual influences and factors (e.g., how cultural, gender and lifestyle issues shape people's experiences and concerns); and to create inclusive learning environments for students and faculty members.

The ICP program is offered in both a traditional weekly and an intensive weekend format. The weekend program begins with an eight-day retreat each August, followed by one weekend per month between September and May. Weekday and weekend schedule flexibility and availability will be important.

We are accepting applications for multiple full-time faculty positions. The application date is rolling and will remain open until all positions are filled. If you are curious whether positions remain open, please contact ICP Program Co-Chair, Anna Benassi at, for more information.
