IMHS Metaphysics Institute – Premier Metaphysical University, Metaphysical Studies, Metaphysics PhD Degrees

#

I always knew I wanted my degree, but the traditional setup of college was a drag to me and every semester there was always an additional class that was required or an increase in tuition or both. I feel as if this program is designed for people like me who want to expand their thinking and be challenged without feeling dumb or getting into debt. I am extremely grateful for a degree program that allows me to simply think and to be myself. —Britney Bryant, USA

IMHS is Fresh, Innovative, and Contemporary: [ Read More ]

Metaphysics is about more than just the abstract; it is also about a successful life. The abstract will certainly stimulate your thinking and can lead to great spiritual development, but for spiritual development to be effective and meaningful, it must be activated by practical life-skills; powerful everyday tools that will enable you to have better relationships, better communication skills, better critical thinking skills, and more. IMHS gives you both the spiritual development and the practical life-skills you need for a balanced, successful life!

IMHS is Powerful and Cutting-Edge: [ Read More ]

The IMHS curriculum is based on the Life Leadership Paragon TM. an exclusive and elegant model for success that has changed countless lives for the better. It is only taught at our schools. For more than a decade, this model has been carefully crafted and developed into a powerful, cutting-edge system for personal growth and spiritual enlightenment. The Life Leadership Paragon TM also serves as the foundation for Life Leadership Coaching TM. a blend of life coaching and transpersonal spiritual counseling which is also only taught at our schools. Students specializing in Holistic Life Coaching or Spiritual Counseling will really appreciate this creative and highly effective approach to helping others!

IMHS Gives You the Training and Skills You Need: [ Read More ]

In addition to spiritual development and practical life-skills, IMHS actually gives students the skills they need to be successful in their chosen areas of specialization (major). Many of our students take additional courses in their areas of interest beyond the ones required for graduation because they have come to know that our courses are comprehensive and beneficial to their personal and professional development. IMHS graduates are well-equipped to go out and make a positive difference in the world!

IMHS is Objective and Grounded: [ Read More ]

Rather than obscure, fringy, and highly esoteric concepts, IMHS approaches metaphysics in an objective, grounded, and real-world manner while still keeping the door open to the great mysteries of consciousness and our Universe. As humanity evolves, many people are leaving the confines of old religious and social notions and seeking new paradigms that focus on the value and worth of the individual. This is why IMHS teaches a human-centered spiritual philosophy which does not surrender one’s power to anyone or anything else. It empowers, encourages, and builds people up. It refreshes the mind, spirit, and soul!

Genuine, Bona-Fide, and Legal Degrees: [ Read More ]

Our degrees are absolutely genuine, legal, and “real.” IMHS is not a diploma mill. Our degrees are non-secular (religiously-based) in nature and require effort on the student’s part. Non-secular degrees are neither better nor worse than traditional degrees; they are simply used for different purposes. Therefore, students can rest assured that the degree they earn is completely legal and “real,” and the title of “Doctor” can be used in front of their names. This applies to nearly every country in the free world–especially countries that protect religious freedom.

Metaphysics for the 21st Century: [ Read More ]

With the many demands of life in this day and age, most adults simply do not have the time to spend several years getting a degree. Nevertheless, many busy adults would like a degree to enhance their lives and careers. Therefore, we have simplified and streamlined our Metaphysics PhD program by offering Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Doctoral degrees in an accelerated format that takes less time to complete thus allowing students to begin using their degrees sooner. And the best part is that our degree program provides an excellent learning platform that is concentrated, comprehensive, and affordable. We think you’ll find this 21st Century approach to getting your Metaphysics PhD degree a refreshing change from the past century!

Counseling PhD Programs

Nobody says you need to write a doctoral dissertation to be licensed as a counselor. Nobody says you need to do ground-breaking research either. For some, though, it is a calling. Across the United States, professional counselors are licensed on the basis of a master’s degree. Many professionals, though, opt to study at the doctoral level. The Council for Accreditation of Counseling & Related Educational Programs (CACREP) lists 63 doctoral programs in its directory: the vast majority conferring PhDs, some granting EdDs.

CACREP Accredited PhD in Counseling Program :

Capella University offers four online CACREP – Accredited Graduate Programs in Counseling including the CACREP accredited PhD in Counselor Education and Supervision. SMaster’s specialty tracks include Mental Health Counseling, Marriage and Family Counseling/Therapy, Addiction Counseling, and School Counseling. Click here to contact Capella University and request information about their programs.

For some highly educated candidates, the doctoral degree is the first counseling degree (though there may already be a string of initials beside their name). For many, though, the doctoral degree is a continuation of counseling studies. Many counseling PhD programs only admit students with master’s degrees in counseling or closely related fields.

Here is a look at some types of counseling PhD programs and the professional goals you may achieve.

Counselor Supervision and Education PhD Programs

Counselor supervision and education is a common designation. The PhD level internship typically includes hours spent supervising master’s candidates and teaching graduate level courses.

Some jurisdictions set educational requirements for counselor supervisors higher than those for counselors. A PhD in counselor supervision and education can be a chance to go beyond the minimum.

This can be the ticket to more than just a tenure-track faculty position –some professionals even conduct research in the counselor education arena. A group of three at Regent got a head start as doctoral students when they worked on a project comparing the experiences of students of online and traditional CACREP-accredited counseling programs (http://www.regent.edu/acad/schcou/admissions/profiles/phd_profiles_grant.htm ).

CACREP lists all doctoral level counseling programs as “counselor education and supervision” but notes that there are actually many specialties possible. Indeed, many PhD students are carving out their own niches. Browse the student profiles of Idaho State University’s Counseling and Counselor Education and you’ll find diverse interests (http://www.isu.edu/hpcounsl/doctoral.shtml#third ). One student includes among her interests sand tray therapy, creative interventions with adolescents, and blending Eastern and Western philosophies. Another is interested in counselor supervision as well as adventure counseling and using music in counseling. Yet another, experienced in counseling mentally disabled sex offenders, counts mindfulness, advocacy, and supervision as “scholarly interests”.

Capella University offers one of the very few online General Counselor Education and Supervision Ph.D. programs. Click Here to contact Capella University and learn more about their program.

Pastoral Counseling PhD and PhDs in Related Fields

Some master’s level practitioners pursue degrees in counseling and pastoral care or pastoral counseling so that they can integrate spirituality into their professional practice.

Others advance the pastoral counseling field without providing direct care. If suitable mentors are available, PhD students may focus their dissertation on pastoral counseling issues even if the track does not specify “pastoral care”; this is more likely to be the case at a university with a spiritual or religious focus. One PhD candidate at Regent University focused on Honduran mental health needs as identified by counseling students at a religious seminary http://www.regent.edu/acad/schcou/dissertation/

Mental Health Counseling PhD Programs

The PhD in mental health counseling is an opportunity to distinguish yourself in a particular area of the field, for example, grief counseling.

In addition to becoming an expert in the clinical arena, you may become a leader in professional organizations.

At Pace University, in addition to passing a comprehensive examination and writing and defending a dissertation, PhD students create a developmental action plan which can include presentations, publications, research, and mentoring. One of their first tasks is to begin a professional portfolio; this portfolio is updated as they achieve professional goals.

A professional portfolio is necessary if you aspire to be a diplomat or fellow of the American Psychotherapy Association. Attaining such status does more than just provide a sense of personal accomplishment. Accolades are an asset if you want to present your findings… and want to be heard.

He is also chair of the Physiome and Systems Biology Committee of the International Union of Physiological Sciences.

    Dr. McCulloch’s lab uses experimental and computational models to investigate the relationships between the cellular and molecular structure of cardiac muscle and the electrical and mechanical function of the whole heart during ventricular remodeling, heart failure and arrhythmia. Current interests include developing multi-scale models of myocyte excitation-contraction coupling mechanisms and their regulation by PKA and CaMKII. Dr. McCulloch’s group has also scaled cellular level models of these processes up to the tissue and organ scales to investigate mechanisms of arrhythmias and ventricular dysfunction associated with targeted gene defects and congestive heart failure. Genetically engineered mice are an important model system for developing and validating these computational models. Important phenotyping techniques in the mouse include optical electrical mapping, isolated muscle mechanics testing and magnetic resonance imaging. The lab is also developing new methods to generate patient-specifc models of the failing heart for clinical use. A second major area of research in the lab has been the role of cytoskeletal and membrane proteins in cardiac myocyte mechanotransduction mechanisms and how defects in costameric and z-disk protein complexes can alter mechanotransduction and lead to dilated cardiomyopathy.

    What Is Positive Psychology?

    Updated May 06, 2016

    Positive psychology is one of the newest branches of psychology to emerge. This particular area of psychology focuses on how to help human beings prosper and lead healthy, happy lives. While many other branches of psychology tend to focus on dysfunction and abnormal behavior. positive psychology is centered on helping people become happier.

    Martin Seligman and Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi describe positive psychology in the following way: We believe that a psychology of positive human functioning will arise that achieves a scientific understanding and effective interventions to build thriving in individuals, families, and communities.

    Over the last ten years or so, general interest in positive psychology has grown tremendously. Today, more and more people are searching for information on how they can become more fulfilled and achieve their full potential. Interest in the topic has also increased on college campuses. In 2006, Harvard s course on positive psychology became the university s most popular class. In order to understand the field of positive psychology, it is essential to start by learning more about its history, major theories and applications.

    The History of Positive Psychology

    Before World War II, psychology had three distinct missions: curing mental illness, making the lives of all people more productive and fulfilling, and identifying and nurturing high talent, Seligman wrote in 2005. Shortly after WWII, the primary focus of psychology shifted to the first priority: treating abnormal behavior and mental illness .

    Healthy Mind

    Learn the best ways to manage stress and negativity in your life.

    During the 1950s, humanist thinkers such as Carl Rogers. Erich Fromm. and Abraham Maslow helped renew interest in the other two areas by developing theories that focused on happiness and the positive aspects of human nature.

    In 1998, Seligman was elected President of the American Psychological Association and positive psychology became the theme of his term.

    Today, Seligman is widely viewed as the father of contemporary positive psychology. In 2002, the first International Conference on Positive Psychology was held. In 2009, the first World Congress on Positive Psychology took place in Philadelphia and featured talks by Martin Seligman and Philip Zimbardo.

    Important People in Positive Psychology

    Major Topics in Positive Psychology

    Some of the major topics of interest in positive psychology include:

    Research Findings in Positive Psychology

    Some of the major findings of positive psychology include:

    • People are generally happy.
    • Money doesn t necessarily buy well-being; but spending money on other people can make individuals happier.
    • Some of the best ways to combat disappointments and setbacks include strong social relationships and character strengths.
    • Work can be important to well-being, especially when people are able to engage in work that is purposeful and meaningful.
    • While happiness is influenced by genetics, people can learn to be happier by developing optimism, gratitude, and altruism .

    Applications of Positive Psychology

    Positive psychology can have a range of real-world applications in areas including education. therapy, self-help, stress management. and workplace issues. Using strategies from positive psychology, teachers, coaches, therapists, and employers can motivate others and help individuals understand and develop their personal strengths.

    Understanding Positive Psychology

    In a 2008 article published by Psychology Today . the late Christopher Peterson, author of A Primer in Positive Psychology and professor at the University of Michigan, noted that it is essential to understand what positive psychology is as well as what it is not.

    Positive psychology is. a call for psychological science and practice to be as concerned with strength as with weakness; as interested in building the best things in life as in repairing the worst; and as concerned with making the lives of normal people fulfilling as with healing pathology, he writes.

    He cautioned, however, that positive psychology does not involve ignoring the very real problems that people face and that other areas of psychology strive to treat. The value of positive psychology is to complement and extend the problem-focused psychology that has been dominant for many decades, he explained.

    Entering students with a solid preparation are encouraged to consider taking the examination in their first year of full-time study. All students must take the examinations in order to be allowed to register for coursework beyond 36 points of credit; it is recommended that students attempt to take the examinations well before this deadline. Graduate Assistants are required to take the examinations during their first year of study.

    For further details, consult the page on the written comprehensive exams .

    The Oral Preliminary Examination

    This examination is usually (but not invariably) taken after two years of full-time study. The purpose of the examination is to determine if the candidate has acquired sufficient mathematical knowledge and maturity to commence a dissertation. The phrase “mathematical knowledge” is intended to convey rather broad acquaintance with the basic facts of mathematical life, with emphasis on a good understanding of the simplest interesting examples. In particular, highly technical or abstract material is inappropriate, as is the rote reproduction of information. What the examiners look for is something a little different and less easy to quantify. It is conveyed in part by the word “maturity.” This means some idea of how mathematics hangs together; the ability to think a little on one’s feet; some appreciation of what is natural and important, and what is artificial. The point is that the ability to do successful research depends on more than formal learning, and it is part of the examiners’ task to assess these less tangible aspects of the candidate’s preparation.

    The orals are comprised of a general section and a special section, each lasting one hour, and are conducted by two different panels of three faculty members. The examination takes place three times a year: fall, mid-winter and late spring. Cooperative preparation of often helpful and is encouraged. The general section consists of five topics, one of which may be chosen freely. The other four topics are determined by field of interest, but often turn out to be standard: complex variables, real variables, ordinary differential equations, and partial differential equations. Here, the level of knowledge that is expected is equivalent to that of a one or two term course of the kind Courant normally presents. A brochure containing the most common questions on the general oral examination, edited by Courant students, is available at the Department Office.

    The special section is usually devoted to a single topic at a more advanced level and extent of knowledge. The precise content is negotiated with he candidate’s faculty advisor. Normally, the chosen topic will have a direct bearing on the candidate’s Ph.D. dissertation.

    All students must take the oral examinations in order to be allowed to register for coursework beyond 60 points of credit. It is recommended that students attempt the examinations well before this deadline.

    The Dissertation Defense

    The oral defense is the final examination on the student’s dissertation. The defense is conducted by a panel of five faculty members (including the student’s advisor) and generally lasts one to two hours. The candidate presents his/her work to a mixed audience, some expert in the student’s topic, some not. Often, this presentation is followed by a question-and-answer period and mutual discussion of related material and directions for future work.

    Summer Internships and Employment

    The Department encourages Ph.D. students at any stage of their studies, including the very early stage, to seek summer employment opportunities at various government and industry facilities. In the past few years, Courant students have taken summer internships at the National Institute of Health, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and NASA, as well as Wall Street firms. Such opportunities can greatly expand students’ understanding of the mathematical sciences, offer them possible areas of interest for thesis research, and enhance their career options. The Director of Graduate Studies and members of the faculty (and in particular the students’ academic advisors) can assist students in finding appropriate summer employment.

    What Is Health Economics?

    Health Economics is an applied field of study that allows for the systematic and rigorous examination of the problems faced in promoting health for all. By applying economic theories of consumer, producer and social choice, health economics aims to understand the behavior of individuals, health care providers, public and private organizations, and governments in decision-making.

    From economic modeling to policy analysis, I am confident that the skills I have gained throughout the year will stay with me throughout my life. I am beyond lucky to have been at this incredible school alongside inspiring classmates, learning from professors who are true experts in this field. The MHS in Health Economics here at Hopkins is by far the best thing I could have done to start my career.

    The MHS in Health Economics
    Program at Hopkins

    Health economics is used to promote health through the study of health care providers, hospitals and clinics, managed care and public health promotion activities. Health economists apply the theories of production, efficiency, disparities, competition, and regulation to better inform the public and private sector on the most efficient, or cost-effective, and equitable course of action. Such research can include the economic evaluation of new technologies, as well as the study of appropriate prices, anti-trust policy, optimal public and private investment, and strategic behavior.

    Health economics can also be used to evaluate how certain social problems, such as market failure and inequitable allocation of resources, can impact on the health of a community or population. Health economics can then be used to directly inform government on the best course of action with regards to regulation, national health packages, defining health insurance packages and other national health programs.

    Faculty of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School are currently conducting research on a wide variety of topics including the impact of health care, health insurance and preventative services on health lifestyles as well as providing research and advice to governments around the globe to enable a more effective and equitable allocation of resources. Further information on faculty retreat can be found on individual faculty research pages.
