Year in Review: Counseling & Clinical Psychology

Through its four degree programs -'" the M.A. in Psychology & Education, the Ed.M. in Psychological Counseling, and two Ph.D. programs, in Counseling Psychology and Clinical Psychology (APA-accredited) -'" the department prepares students to investigate and address the psychological needs of individuals, families, groups, organizations, institutions and communities, with a growing emphasis on multicultural competencies.

This year:

The faculty developed programs in Sexuality, Women & Gender and Bilingual Latina/o Mental Health Counseling. The former has since been approved by the New York State Department of Education. The SWG initiative reflects a broader effort to mainstream these three areas as a focus in course offerings across all Teachers College departments. The bilingual certificate program will help prepare doctora lfellows funded by TC's new Graduate Psychology Education training grant from the federal Health Resources and Services Administration. The grant aligns with the Affordable Care Act to closely ally medical caregivers and those in the mental health fields. The TC fellows will initially train at TC's Dean Hope Center for Educational and Psychological Services, directed by Dinelia Rosa.

Other offerings in earlier-stage development by the department include a master's degree program in Social Justice & Community Well-Being and a credentialed Alcoholism & Substance Abuse Counselor program.

A new Spirituality Mind Body Summer program debuted on the Teachers College campus, bringing 33 students fromas far away as China andWales together with visiting neuroscientists, religious leaders and heads of values-driven businesses.

The world's first Psychoanalytic Fair, convened by the department, drew 500 practitioners and representatives from 33 prestigious institutes. The event was organized by Aurelie Athan, who serves as Director of TC's M.A. program in Clinical Psychology, and master's degree student Marie Hansen, founder of an on campus inter-disciplinary group that promotes psychoanalytic thought.
