Founders Day



Cummings Graduate Institute for Behavioral Studies (CGI), a private nonprofit online institution, was founded on October 20, 2014 in the state of Arizona and welcomed our first incoming cohort of DBH students in June 2015. As the only university in the world focused exclusively on education in the growing field of integrated behavioral healthcare, CGI takes pride in celebrating the innovative vision of our founders on the anniversary of our incorporation, hereby known as Founders Day.

October 20, 2018 marks the 4 exciting years of growth and achievement for Cummings Graduate Institute for Behavioral Studies. CGI invites is community of students, alumni, faculty, staff, board members, and supporters to join us in the virtual festivities on Founders day.

The “four questions” of the refocused psychotherapist [in the Biodyne Model] and the concept of the “onion/garlic” psychodynamic enabled me to not only conceptualize a case and plan treatment more rapidly, but to rise to a new level of professional confidence in meeting the behavioral care needs of my patients.
