Welcome to the Counseling Psychology Program!

  • Welcome Message

    The Program in Psychological Counseling is dedicated to the preparation of psychological counselors who facilitate the normal and optimal development of individuals, groups, and organizations that is culturally relevant and psychologically appropriate across the lifespan. Our students are taught to use strategies of prevention, intervention, and remediation to assist others in developing effective coping skills and responses to their environments.

    Program Statement About Recent Events 
    The Counseling Psychology program at Teachers College was saddened to hear the  recent decisions in Ferguson and  New York City .These events make it evident that, as a society, we continue to battle with violence, oppression and injustice that is targeted toward minority individuals, and in these instances towards communities of color. The Counseling Program is committed to the protection and dignity of all individuals in society and in particular communities who have suffered systematic and repeated injustices through time. 

    Unfortunately events like these remind us that we still have a long way in achieving social justice and equity in society. Only with continued efforts for peace, liberation and wellbeing for all individuals can we truly hope for a better tomorrow. As a program we recommit ourselves to fighting oppression, violence and injustice and hope that one day safety and dignity is a right for all individuals and not merely the privilege for a few.
