About Us

Our History

A nonprofit educational, counseling, training and research center, Phillips Graduate Institute traces its origin to the 1950s when Clinton E. Phillips, Ph.D., pioneered the application of family systems theory and the initiation of family therapy at the American Institute of Family Relations.

In 1971, Dr. Phillips and T. David Jansen, D. Min founded the California Family Study Center (CFSC) as the only freestanding graduate program in the country dedicated solely to the field of human relationships. Built upon the family systems model, the graduate program in Marriage and Family Therapy attracted a diverse population of students brought together by a shared passion for making a difference. As the program gained momentum, it quickly became known as a leader in mental health higher education across the profession. In 1996, in recognition of his innovative leadership, the Board of Trustees honored Dr. Phillips by changing the name to Phillips Graduate Institute.
