The Institute of Psychology, founded in 1971 at the Pontifical Gregorian University, aims to prepare specialists in psychology who integrate the spiritual and psychological dimensions in the apostolic and educational activities where they are responsible, as Spiritual Directors in Seminaries, as vocational formators, and as educators etc.

In this way the Institute seeks to respond to the invitation of the Second Vatican Council:

"In pastoral care, appropriate use must be made not only of theological principles, but also of the secular sciences, especially of psychology and sociology. Thus the faithful can be brought to live the faith in a more thorough and mature way" (Gaudium et Spes, n. 62).

The Institute offers a vision of the human person and of the Christian vocation which, taking account of Christian values and of the importance of subconscious motivation, serves as a solid base from which to help others to grow in their personal vocation.

The graduates of the Institute - by now over 450 in number - work throughout the world as formators and educators and in other positions of responsibility.
