Lynch School of Education and Human Development Counseling Psychology

We aspire to cultivate the highest level of competence in our students to conduct rigorous and cutting-edge research, to refine their clinical skills based in multiple theoretical orientations, and to ensure that all students have opportunities to advocate for social justice through their research, clinical work, teaching, and outreach. Our aim is to produce the next generation of counseling psychologists who are poised to make critical advances in our field that expand beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries and clinical settings.

Our scientist-practitioner training model emphasizes a developmental contextual perspective with attention to the intersectionality of multiple forms of diversity, and a firm commitment to social justice and community-based practice.

Students emerge from our program with training experiences that make them highly competitive to attain positions in academia, mental health organizations, and other related occupations across community contexts.
