Adler University’s Master of Arts (M.A.) in Counselling Psychology: School and Youth Concentration program prepares students with comprehensive knowledge, skills, and real-world experience to provide therapeutic services for children, adolescents, and their families across a wide range of settings. Students gain a strong foundation in counselling theories and methods and are trained to be self-reflexive, socially responsible clinicians.
Students gain the knowledge and skills to create real change for youth and adolescents, and our diverse faculty brings together rigorous classroom learning with individualized mentorship and hands-on professional experience.
Graduates work as psychotherapists, counsellors, case managers, guidance counsellors, and in many more positions. Our innovative program aligns with the requirements of the registering bodies for master’s level counsellors in British Columbia and Canada (the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors and the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association).
