GAIN REAL-WORLD EXPERIENCE SERVING THE COMMUNITY
One of the original precepts behind the founding of the California School of Professional Psychology (CSPP) was the need for a strong integration between academics and hands-on work skills. Both the Clinical Counseling MA program in San Francisco and the Counseling Psychology MA program in Mexico City provide students with rich opportunities to gain supervised clinical experience in a variety of settings.
SAN FRANCISCO – BENEFIT FROM UNIQUE BAY AREA RESOURCES
Students in the Clinical Counseling master’s program conduct a minimum of 700 hours of direct and indirect supervised clinical experience counseling individuals, families or groups.
The San Francisco Bay Area provides exceptionally rich and diverse field placement opportunities. Clinical Counseling students utilize resources of the CSPP Psychological Service Center in Oakland and other field practica in the surrounding communities to complete the required supervised clinical training.
MEXICO CITY – UNIQUE EDUCATIONAL LOCATION
Students in the Counseling Psychology master’s program are trained to develop core clinical competencies, with particular emphasis on applying psychological and systemic theories, in counseling children, couples and families.
One of the largest and most dynamic cities in the world, Mexico City offers a valuable opportunity to experience a truly globalized environment. Counseling Psychology students complete their supervised clinical training experiences at the California Clinic on campus and in a variety of mental health agencies throughout the city.
