CSPP Clinical Counseling Program Students

Clinical Counseling Masters Program - San Francisco

FOCUS: MENTAL WELLNESS

Professional counseling is a vibrant field with excellent career growth opportunities. Unlike other mental health treatment approaches, counseling focuses on wellness and prevention rather than pathology.

CSPP’s clinical counseling master’s program integrates a strengths-based and resilience perspective to foster critical consciousness and reflective thinking, developing practitioner skills in diagnosis, treatment planning and psychological interventions with individuals and groups.

EMPOWER CLIENTS THROUGH MULTICULTURAL COMPETENCE

The Clinical Counseling master’s program uses academic, experiential and research-based clinical practice approaches as well as direct community service learning in coursework and field placements. It also develops multicultural competence and a strong foundation in social justice advocacy to empower the clients and communities they will serve.

The students of the Clinical Counseling Program are able to break down the walls of race, gender and age to build a community between themselves. Many students speak of not only the education they receive through this program but also the relationships built between their peers. Being able to look past different cultures and views in the classroom helps students to be able to venture into outside communities that are in need of counseling. The course provides students the confidence they need to reach out to those communities of need that they may have not been able to reach before.

ACCREDITATION AND STANDARDS

The Clinical Counseling MA curriculum incorporates the educational requirements set out by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences, the Masters in Counseling Accreditation Council (MCAC) and the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Programs (CACREP) 2009 Standards.

GRADUATE CAREER-READY

All students graduate positioned to pursue the Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) license in California and most other states.
