The main reason why schools like the University of Sedona grant degrees in Transpersonal Counselling is for the same reason they offer Metaphysical Psychology. Transpersonal and Metaphysical psychology are not regulated in most places. I can call myself Metaphysical Psychology therapist or transpersonal counsellor without a license. The day APA regulates Transpersonal Psychology the same way Clinical, then University of Sedona will call it New Age Psychology, Positive Psychology or any other unregulated term. Bottom line is that many seminars provide the credentials for people to offer services that normally require 10 or more years of training in less than a year. And because of their religious nature, APA or other professional associations cannot regulate their offerings. If unaccredited seminars would really be interested in training ministers, they would not care about giving degrees that clearly are intended to deceive people. Let's say that one day the University of Sedona decides to change their PhDs into a certificate of metaphysical ministry, let's see how many people would care about getting these certificates. If the people were really interested only in the spiritual teachings, they would not care about the PhD titles but the reality seems to indicate otherwise. Even Doctors of Divinity, it is not ethical to offer a one year program as a Doctor of Divinity. They can just call them certificates of divinity but my guess is that they will not sell many of these because people get them not because the learning but as ego boosters.
