The institutes are led by USM Psychology Professor William Gayton, Ph.D. During the past 20 years, Professor Gayton has been instrumental in the creation, promotion, and execution of these intense and fascinating educational programs.
The institutes consist of three-day intensive classes (Wednesday-Friday) for college students seeking academic credit or for community professionals seeking certification and professional development opportunities. The institutes offer CEU's for teachers requiring re-certification, as well as for participants seeking Board of Psychology or Social Work CEU's.
The educational focus of these unique programs is to bring together a tremendous team of academic experts to facilitate a discussion of theory and practice. The institutes are intended to appeal to mental health practitioners, health care professionals, physicians, physical therapists, nursing students, psychologists, counselors, social workers, human service workers, coaches, athletic directors, and athletes.
Open to all majors, no prerequisites. For registration information, visit Psychology Institute webpage.
