The AAP Psychology PROGRAM

3-Year Certificate Program: a Foundation in Anthroposophic Psychology

The core of our teaching: a comprehensive psychology recognizing body, soul, and spirit comes in nine seminars (3 seminars per year for 3 years).

New 3-Year Certificate Program start date has been postponed until August 3, 2022.  Click HERE to learn more and see the schedule.  Registration Instructions for Seminar 1 can be found HERE.

REGISTRATION IS CLOSED.  We welcome you to join us in 2025 for the next 3-Year Certificate Program.

Additional on-line sessions with Faculty members between each seminar are available to Cohort participants and Interns!

On-line learning: In between the seminars, we will host live internet conference calls (Zoom or something similar) wherein materials will be reviewed, questions of clarification can be asked, and some new materials presented. We prefer face-to-face real-time meetings with participants. However, the internet format can be very useful for concept-building, for putting questions to faculty from the last seminar, and for hearing from others about their areas of expertise. Each call is expected to include 20 minutes of presentation by a faculty member, then 20 minutes of discussion (and, of course, these parameters can vary). On-line learning can be helpful, and we will train you in how to work with the distortions and deceptions of this medium, in order to achieve maximum benefit.

Each seminar includes:

  • Anthroposophic psychology concepts and practice
  • NBCC-level blocks for those seeking CEs
  • Self-care and self-development
  • Art and Movement, including eurythmy

Each of the nine carefully designed seminars includes a balance of experiential exercises, lectures, artistic response, movement, individual contemplation and the richness of human relationship.


Psychotherapy Certification Program

Pre-requisite:  Graduated from AAP's 3-Year Certificate Program in Anthroposophic Psychology or equivalent from an Anthroposophic Psychotherapy training recognized by IFAPA (International Federation of Anthroposophic Psychotherapy Associations).

How can an anthroposophic understanding of the human being enrich and transform the practice of psychotherapy?

The Association for Anthroposophic Psychology is now offering a certification program in Anthroposophic Psychotherapy beginning in 2023.  The program is designed for licensed clinicians who have already completed AAP's three-year foundation studies in anthroposophic psychology.  One of our goals is to build a community of clinicians working out of anthroposophic psychology.  Together, we can discover how to apply an anthroposophic understanding of the human being in the psychotherapeutic encounter.
