Transformative Counseling Post-Graduate Certificate

Degree Overview

Offered on-campus, the post-graduate certificate in Transformative Counseling (TC) evaluates issues of meaning, values and a just existence from a community and cultural perspective. The TC courses highlight the communal nature of the world and the powerful influences of both inherited and evolving cultural and ecological realities and narratives. The stories that shape us and the stores we create directly impact the psychological wellbeing of individuals, families and communities. The TC curriculum looks to human imagination, feeling, intuition and community dialog as essentials in addressing the basic mental health needs of our times.

The certificate is a planned program of study which includes 18 graduate credits (six courses). Certificate course work is offered in evening or weekend intensive formats so that students may complete the course work within one calendar year. This certificate is designed for community professionals with a master’s degree in counseling or closely related area of clinical psychotherapy who meet the requirements for admission to the certificate program.

Current graduate students in the Master of Arts in Counseling and Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy programs may also be admitted to the TC certificate program concurrently during their master’s degree coursework. The TC certificate cannot be awarded to current students until the semester following graduation from the master’s degree program and completion of the certificate coursework.

Total Credit Requirements: 18 credit hours
