China Cultural Immersion Program

California School of Professional Psychology (CSPP) invites you to partake in our China Cultural Immersion Program that brings you to three of the most historical places in China: Beijing, Xi'an and Shanghai. All graduate students or graduates of psychology or other mental health programs are welcome. Licensed mental health professionals may receive 24 hours of CE credit for attending.

Experience China as we navigate through cultural and historical landmarks. Along with the program, you will get a chance to visit with professionals from local mental health institutions (e.g., hospital, university, etc.). The program is designed to enrich your understanding of cross-cultural psychology in China through an immersion experience that allows you to attain first-hand knowledge of the differing social, political and environmental atmosphere.
