Position Summary:

The Department of Counseling Psychology is primarily a graduate department with an instructional program offering the master's degree (M.S.) in counseling and the doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in counseling psychology. The Department of Counseling Psychology is also a contributor to a new collaborative Health Promotion and Health Equity undergraduate major. The master's and doctoral programs are intended to provide a closely- integrated didactic experiential curriculum for the preparation of counseling professionals.

The doctoral degree, consistent with the APA's scientist-practitioner model of training, emphasizes the integration of counseling and psychological theory and practice with substantive development of research skills in the domains encompassed by counseling psychology. The department emphasizes the integration of multiculturalism, diversity, and social justice issues into counseling psychology and is committed to multiculturalism broadly- defined in teaching, research, and practice. Current department faculty have scholarly expertise in the following areas: psychotherapy process and outcome, educational and vocational development, community-based interventions, child development, and research methods with particular attention to multicultural issues (e.g., ethnic identity development and experiences, LGBTQ issues, social class, homelessness, immigrant and refugee families).

The Department of Counseling Psychology's Counseling Psychology Training Clinic (CPTC) offers sliding scale psychological services to UW-Madison students and Dane County residents. The CPTC is administered and staffed by the faculty, staff, and students in the Department and serves as one of the primary training sites for our master's and doctoral students. The clinic serves a diverse clientele for individual, couple, and group therapy services and provides direct mental health support and outreach to underrepresented students through an innovative community support effort funded by the Office of the Vice Provost for Diversity and Climate.
