“Counselors here in California’s Central Valley region are in demand and often work long hours in isolation. Due to work and other factors, many therapists forget to prioritize connecting and consulting with other mental health professionals,” said Dr. David Paul, system-wide director of Alliant’s clinical counseling programs. “This event is designed to help LPCCs catch up with friends, colleagues and local organizations while building a network of professional support.
Alliant’s California School of Professional Psychology has consistently been awarded with top accreditation and elite faculty members, helping to give graduate students the best education possible. CSPP offers degrees in general psychology, organizational psychology, educational psychology, counseling psychology, and more, and first and foremost aims to bridge the gap between mental and physical health.
