Public Programs at Pacifica Graduate Institute
Pacifica is dedicated to cultivating and harvesting the gifts of the human imagination so that these insights may be brought to bear upon the personal, cultural, and planetary concerns of our era. As with the Graduate Degree Programs, Pacifica's Public Programs explore the fields of psychology and mythological studies through the lens of depth psychology. Programs cover a wide range of topics from humanities and culture to counseling and clinical psychology.
The Public Programs Department offers lectures, seminars and conferences designed for the adult learner who is interested in the subject matter but not necessarily interested in pursuing a graduate degree. Most of the public programs offer continuing education units for professionals in the field. These events are open to the general public with the intention of bringing Pacifica's educational resources to the wider community. Held at Pacifica's Campuses, the programs feature Pacifica faculty and well-known guest presenters.
Continuing Education Credit
All public programs offer continuing education credits for Marriage & Family Therapists, Licensed Clinical Social Workers, and Registered Nurses. Some programs provide hours for Psychologists.

Also for MFTs and LCSWs (provider #PCE 2278) as required by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences. Pacifica Graduate Institute is approved by the California Psychological Association to provide continuing education for psychologists.
