Eco-Health Concentration

The Eco-Health Care Concentration & Certificate

The unique focus of this concentration is on eco-health, ecopsychology, environmental illness, and the creative arts as a source of healing, strength, insight, and hope. The Eco-Health Care Concentration provides students with an opportunity to expand their understanding of psychology and the psychological, emotional, physical, cognitive, and spiritual needs of human beings, while they explore the impact of ecopsychology and eco-health approaches on Creative Arts Therapy, psychotherapy, and medical and healthcare practice.

Concentration Requirements:

ICAF and ICAT candidates must complete the following four General Education courses:

  • ECO 01  Professional Development: Eco-Health
