Notice: As of September 1, 2020, The Professional School of Psychology has no longer granted academic degrees—after providing these services for 41 years. It continues to operate as an educational and research institution, providing workshops and certificate programs, while conducting related psychological research projects and supporting publication of psychologically related documents in the Library of Professional Psychology and Ash Point Publishing.
There are several ways in which you might want to become acquainted with The Professional School of Psychology. You can read a brief account of the History of the School — starting with service to human service providers working in San Francisco, California during the late 1970s. You might instead (or in addition) want to read a summary description of the Educational Models on which the school is founded.. You might also want to review the commitments made by leaders of the school regarding its mission — as embedded in the Charter of The Professional School of Psychology. At a more personal level, you can read one of the statements written about PSP by our President. Each account offers a somewhat different perspective on our school. Each of us views the school in our own unique manner!
If you have the time and interest, there is yet another way in which to become acquainted with us and gain a deeper sense of our shared commitment to innovative adult education. One of our graduates, along with our president, have prepared an essay regarding four models of adult education and have set the groundwork for the several different ways in which we continue to deliver education and training in psychology to mature, accomplished adult learners through workshops and certificate programs. This essay is called: Four Models of Adult Education.
