About

“Doctoral students and faculty at LIU Brooklyn campus are hard at work in their research, clinical experiences, and academic coursework, but you won’t hear frantic footsteps and harried voices when you approach the Psychology Department on the 8th floor. Walking through the light wooden doors of the LIU Clinical Psychology program, you are greeted by modern glass-walled rooms, soft lights, and students gathered cozily on couches in thoughtful and engaged conversation. It’s the things that you may overlook on first glance - a faculty’s hand on a student’s shoulder offering advice on the research design of a study; a second-year student peering over the stats book of a first-year student explaining a data set; a friendly joke and nudge passed between professor and graduate assistant as they exchange morning greetings. As a graduate student in the LIU community, these supportive relationships distinguish the program in poignant ways. The pressures of competition amongst peers are nonexistent; instead, an atmosphere is born of common goals, collaborative work, and nurturance, as students and faculty alike push themselves towards excellence as scholars and clinicians.” – a doctoral student...

PhD in Integral and Transpersonal Psychology

Our Integral and Transpersonal Psychology (ITP) program is one of the few in the world to offer an online PhD in whole-person approaches to psychology. Our program is also unique in its research-oriented approach dedicated to systematic knowledge-building and the advancement of the field.

Whole-person psychology expand the horizons of conventional Western psychology to include mystical and spiritual approaches that transform human consciousness. It also considers psychology as part of a comprehensive framework that includes the living systems of body, community, society, and the world as interconnected processes of evolution in a living, breathing cosmos. From this perspective, scientific work can be pursued with equal rigor as standard approaches, but it becomes possible to ask new and compelling research questions that lie close to the heart of what it is to be human....
