The School Counseling Credential program is a two-year course of study that reflects an integration of local program needs, the campus mission, and the direction provided by the National Standards and National Model of the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) and the National Career Development Guidelines (NOICC). The program is designed to train competent practitioners who are prepared to be leaders in building comprehensive, results-based school counseling programs that serve the needs of all pupils. The program provides training in mental health services using an integrated model designed to serve marriage and family therapists, school counseling and school psychology students. The school counseling students, however, will receive additional training and experience to prepare them to effectively perform the functions of a school counselor. The School Counseling Credential program includes specific training in guidance program models, guidance program development/implementation, and in the comprehensive and developmental school guidance curricula for academic, career, and personal/social development. Students also learn team building, management, and accountability for a comprehensive guidance program.

Erratum to the following Pupil Personnel Credential, School Psychology Internship and School Psychology Specialization:

Pupil Personnel Credential: School Psychology Internship and School Psychology Specialization

Credential Requirements

This combined credential program is offered by the Clinical Child/School Psychology faculty.

The school psychologist is a clinical child psychologist who functions within the school organization. The school psychologist provides consultation and services for enhancement of the cognitive, social and emotional development of children and adolescents within the school environment; provides programs for the development of the staff; has responsibility for the prevention, assessment, and remediation of the behavioral and learning difficulties of children; and often becomes the primary resource for the emotionally troubled children and their parents. The school psychologist serves the schools as the expert in psycho-educational measurement, program evaluation, and research.

School Psychology Internship (95 units)
