Luther program recognized by CRPO

Martin Luther University College, formerly Waterloo Lutheran Seminary, is pleased to announce that its MA in Theology program, in the field of Spiritual Care and Psychotherapy, was recently recognized by the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO).

Kristine Lund, director of Luther's Spiritual Care and Psychotherapy programs, said recognition by the professional registration body will give students, and prospective students, confidence that the time and effort they spend studying at Luther will provide them with a solid foundation for pursuing registration from CRPO.

"Our programs have been well-respected by professionals in our field for quite some time," Lund said. "We welcome the CRPO's recognition as an endorsement of our efforts to provide students with the skills to help people work toward emotional and spiritual well-being."

Lund said Luther streamlined its master’s program to achieve CRPO recognition.

"We are delivering the essential courses we always have," she said. "They are simply structured in a clearer, more focused way."

The majority of Luther's approximately 170 students are enrolled in Spiritual Care and Psychotherapy programs at the graduate diploma, MA and PhD levels. It is the master’s level program that has been recognized.

Anyone who is interested in Luther's MA-level program is invited to attend an information session at the school on Tuesday, Aug. 28. For details, or to register, visit the online listing.
