[[Master’s Program]] Individuals who are seeking to prepare for a career in mental health counseling will find Warner’s master’s program a great way to jump start their career. Our master’s program is registered with the Office of Professions in New York State, and our graduates are eligible to be licensed as mental health counselors in New York. (An exam and 3,000 hours of post-graduate experience are also required for licensure.) Students are introduced to the fundamentals of diagnosis, assessment, treatment planning, and intervention. The contribution of developmental and contextual forces to mental health challenge is emphasized and students are encouraged to explore a critical understanding of contemporary systems of mental health delivery. The curriculum underscores the importance of intervention, wellness, advocacy, and diversity in counseling. Graduates work as mental health counselors in various health, human and social service, and community agencies, and possibly after gaining experience, in private practice.

[[Counseling]] All of our counseling students have one thing in common: They are passionate about helping others. If you, too, feel the urge to connect with people and help them in good and bad times, consider counseling. As a school or community-based mental health counselor, you’ll be helping individuals, families, organizations, and communities make changes that will lead to growth and peace. At Warner, we will teach you how to work one-on-one with individuals and with groups, and we’ll explore the important role that counselors play in advocating for systems in schools and organizations that promote health, development, and well-being. At the same time, we’ll ask you to do some personal work, so that you are in a good place and know yourself well enough to assist others. You’ll do this with a combination of classroom and field work experiences that put human development theory into practice.
