The Department of School Counseling and School Psychology offers the Clinical Counseling Certificate, which equips candidates with an in-depth understanding of the numerous issues and pressures facing students and their families today. The Clinical Counseling Certificate is offered as a four-course elective sequence:

Semester 1
EDCO 571Introduction to Clinical Practice: Basic Skills3
EDCO 572Psychobiology and Psychopharmacology3
Semester 2
EDCO 573Addictions, Assessment, and Interventions3
EDCO 574Introduction to Clinical Practice: Advanced Skills3

Admission requirements for the Clinical Counseling Certificate’s four-course sequence require students to have a master’s degree in counseling, clinical psychology, or a related field. Taking these four courses will not ensure students meet eligibility requirements for the LPCC designation in the state of California; each student is responsible to adhere to specific education and experience requirements, as well as take the required examinations, in order to obtain licensure. It is recommended that students visit the California Association for Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors (CALPCC) for the most current and accurate information about LPCC licensure requirements. Contact a faculty advisor in the Department of School Counseling and School Psychology for more information.
