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.

Students in 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 they build with their peers. Being able to look past different cultures and views in the classroom helps students to be able to venture into outside communities and serve as effective counselors. This process gives students the confidence they need to reach out to those communities of need that they may have not been able to reach before.

Accreditation
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.

What is Clinical Counseling?

Clinical Counseling is a master’s level mental health profession that applies counseling and psychotherapeutic techniques to identify and remediate cognitive, mental, and emotional issues, including personal growth, adjustment to disability, psychosocial and environmental problems, and crisis intervention. The MA Clinical Counseling Program integrates the principles of mental health recovery-oriented practice.

Training Model
Students develop practitioner skills in diagnosis, treatment planning, and psychological interventions with individuals and groups. The program uses academic, experiential, research-based clinical practice approaches and direct community service learning in coursework and field placements. Integrating a strengths-based and resilience perspective, the program fosters critical consciousness and reflective thinking as students learn counseling and consultation skills found to be effective with a variety of mental health issues. Students gain multicultural competence and a strong foundation in social justice advocacy to empower the clients and communities they will serve.

Research Training
As part of the social justice advocacy training, students will engage in a two-semester collaborative community research project in the Research Methods and Masters Project courses. This will culminate with students submitting a grant proposal to support community mental health services.

Course Schedule

The Clinical Counseling master’s program is offered on two campuses: San Francisco and Fresno. In San Francisco, most courses are offered in the afternoons and evenings. Courses in Fresno are offered in the evenings and on weekends. Field placement schedules often depend on the individual clinic or agency where each student is placed, and therefore vary depending on location.

Self Growth Experiences

Faculty, staff and supervisors have professional, ethical obligations to evaluate and ensure the interpersonal competence of trainees. Students will at times be required to participate in learning activities that require different levels of self-disclosure. This can include, but is not limited to, exploration of one’s beliefs and values and the potential impact of one’s disposition toward the backgrounds and histories of a community, clients, peers, faculty, and supervisors.

We strongly recommend that all students complete 20-30 hours of personal growth counseling with a licensed mental health professional in individual and/or group counseling or psychotherapy prior to graduation.
