Core Faculty (Part Time) – Integral Counseling Psychology Program Job Details:

Location: San Francisco, CA Category: Faculty Positions Posted On: Tue May 16 2023 Job Description:

The Integral Counseling Psychology (ICP) Program of the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) is accepting applications for two part-time faculty positions (.66) in our Weekend Program (ICPW). The Integral Counseling Psychology Master of Arts program educates future psychotherapists by centering student development in the three pillars of psychology, spirituality, and social justice. Through experiential, contemplative, theoretical, and transformative learning, students deepen self-awareness and hone clinical skills in coursework and practicum placements. Inspired by integral yoga, the program aspires to graduate students versed in socially engaged spirituality, relational and liberatory approaches, and critical consciousness.

Although job candidates need not specialize in all three pillars, successful candidates will demonstrate a reverence for these three pillars in all aspects of the job. One of the hallmarks of the ICP program is personal and transformative growth through experiential, contemplative, and theoretical learning. This includes collaborative discussions, community-building practices, mindfulness practices, and reflective and academic writing, where students combine inner experience and personal development with preparation to work as a therapist.

Major responsibilities include teaching 12 units per academic year, advising students, attending faculty and university meetings and information sessions, conducting admissions interviews, attending orientations and graduations, service on departmental and university-wide committees, and ongoing participation in scholarship and publication.

The ICP program is offered in both a traditional weekday and an intensive weekend format, both in in-person formats. This position is in the weekend program. This means all classes will be a part of the weekend program only and faculty must be available to teach in-person for all class sessions. The weekend program begins with an eight-day retreat each August, followed by one weekend per month between September and May. Weekend schedule flexibility and availability will be important.

We are accepting applications for two part-time core faculty positions. The priority deadline for applications is August 30, 2023, for positions that start Spring 2024 (January 2024). We will continue to accept applications until the positions are filled. Please contact Anna Benassi Program Co-chair at [email protected] for more information.
