Adler University’s Master of Counselling Psychology: School and Youth Concentration program provides a non-thesis option for students interested in a practitioner-based master’s degree credential, and empowers students with clinical coursework that reflects contemporary challenges counsellors of children and adolescents face. 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, behaviour analysts, case managers, correctional 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).
