An established, highly regarded graduate counseling program for the working student that focuses on ethics, diversity and social justice
The Community Counseling Program is based on the belief that effective counselors have a sense of personal identity and understand the process of identity formation that governs their ethics; a commitment to social justice and work with diverse populations; are grounded in counseling skills that are compatible with any theoretical orientation and can integrate these into an evolving theoretical foundation; and that they can cope effectively with the stress of a demanding profession and develop the professional and personal support systems to sustain them.
The Community Program prepares students for work in various community settings, such as youth service agencies, mental health centers, psychiatric hospitals, and correctional facilities. Community counseling program objectives are:
