Theocentric Psychology Program, as developed by Dr. Masters, founder of the IMM University System, focuses on awakening to the innate potentials for benefiting a person’s life by focusing on Universal Presence or God at the center or nucleus of consciousness within oneself. It is not a practice of, nor seeks to replace, behavioral, clinical psychology or psychiatry dealing with mental illness or acute dysfunction.
Theocentric Psychology seeks to greatly enhance or add to the lives of those who are relatively well adjusted but intuitively know that they have a greater potential within themselves to bring forth and live more fulfilling lives.
This could be in occupational or career pursuits, creativity and the arts, athletics, love within one’s life, as well as the God Presence Benefits of inner peace and happiness that is lasting. A Theocentric Psychology doctoral degree program best serves those whose focus is on the value of attaining enlighten-ment and/or the application of the KNOWINGNESS that enlightenment brings to all major areas of one’s life.
These in-depth teachings are designed to have a therapeutic value as a byproduct of exposure to them. In the ministerial context, the learning from the program’s contents can be applied as enhancements in your work in educational counseling and/or in a life-coaching environment as well as any other professional work with the public. The degree designation, PsyThD. Doctor of Theocentric Psychology, will be especially helpful to those in our ministry who specialize in one-on-one pastoral counseling and coaching work.
