A masters degree in psychotherapy program takes two to three years and seeks to impart knowledge to students on a number of areas, all intended to provide the students with the techniques that are necessary in the improvement of an individuals’ overall mental health.

The masters program is an appealing program for people who are interested in pursuing careers as therapists, counselors, or psychotherapists. With mental illnesses more common than people tend to think, a masters degree in psychotherapy ensures that it provides the society with competent medical professions to handle the mental illness cases in the society. Some of the various theories taught to students in the program include: trauma theory, intersubjectivity theory, self psychology, and memory systems theory. These theories are taught with a focus that is centered around self, the emphatic mode of listening, unconscious traumatic memory systems and notions of boundary formation.

A masters degree in psychotherapy prepares graduates for careers in a variety of fields. One of the main fields the graduates are prepared for is counseling. The theoretical aspects are balanced with the practical application of the techniques taught in the program.
