Courses, short workshops, and professional education in psychology, theology, and culture

Holistic formation and vocational training are lifelong endeavors. As a professional—and as a member of society—your strongest tool is a deep understanding of yourself.

We welcome alumni, friends, and the public to develop their skill and knowledge through a range of professional development options. Experts from various theological backgrounds, disciplines, and methodologies lead short but robust training opportunities to support your personal and vocational development.

Many of our academic course offerings, conferences, and events are available as Continuing Education Units (CEU), which meet the requirements of Licensed Mental Health Counselors by the Washington State Department of Health. If you practice outside of Washington, be aware of the requirements for continuing education in your state or professional organization.
