1 University of Houston-Clear Lake GRADUATE STUDY IN BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES PROGRAMS IN PROFESSIONAL PSYCHOLOGY MASTER OF ARTS in CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY MASTER OF ARTS in FAMILY THERAPY SPECIALIST in SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGY School of Human Sciences and Humanities University of Houston-Clear Lake Houston, Texas (281) Revised December 2014 For Fall 2015 application

2 The graduate programs in professional psychology provide a breadth of background in academic theory along with specific course work and specialized training in one of three areas: (1) Clinical Psychology, (2) Family Therapy, and (3) School Psychology. The specifics of each program are described in detail in the pages that follow. Clinical Psychology and Family Therapy lead to the Master of Arts degree in the respective discipline and School Psychology to the Specialist in School Psychology degree (SSP). While completing a degree program does not automatically qualify the graduate for any specific license or clinical credential, many of our graduates meet the requirements for licensure in Texas as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC); a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT); a Licensed Specialist in School Psychology (LSSP); a Licensed Psychological Associate (LPA); or for a number of other professional credentials. For further information about credentialing, contact the Coordinator of Graduate Programs in Professional Psychology or the Advising office, School of Human Sciences and Humanities. Because enrollment is limited, admission is offered only to the most qualified applicants. The ordinary minimum standard for admission is at least a 3.25 grade point average, the prerequisite undergraduate psychology preparation for each program as listed in the program descriptions on the following pages and evidence of clinical aptitude. Application to all three programs also requires the general test of the Graduate Record Exam (current within the past five years). We prefer that applicants have all prerequisite courses completed at the time of application. Any applicant admitted who has not completed all prerequisites must do so within the first two semesters following admission to remain in good standing. The percentage of applicants accepted into the professional psychology programs generally ranges between 25% and 75% depending on the program. APPLICATION FOR ADMISSION AND SCHOLARSHIPS Applicants may apply to only ONE professional psychology program during any admissions period. There is an application fee for the program application as described below. The program application fee is in addition to the fee for university admission. A.

5 D. Additional Information regarding Applications. Any evidence of tampering with recommendations or transcripts could result in disqualifying the applicant from admission. Applicants should note that admission to graduate status at the university is not equivalent to admission to one of the professional psychology programs. In some cases, applicants may be notified of university admissions by the Advising office, School of Human Sciences and Humanities; any such communication refers only to acceptance into graduate status at the university based on the application for university admission described above in section B. This should not be confused with acceptance into one of the professional psychology programs. Applicants are not admitted into a professional psychology program until they receive formal notice from the program director that they have been accepted into the program. Applicants should direct any questions regarding the status of their application to the Coordinator, Graduate Programs in Professional Psychology. If a student is not accepted into a professional psychology program, he or she may apply for admission to another graduate program. Information regarding other programs is available in the Advising office, School of Human Sciences and Humanities. However, students pursuing other degrees should be aware of the information in the "Restricted Courses" section below. E. Scholarships. Limited scholarships for tuition and fees for professional psychology students are available on a competitive basis. Scholarships sometimes carry a waiver of out-of-state tuition for qualified recipients. For information on scholarships, applicants should contact the Scholarship Office, UHCL Scholarships, Office of Financial Aid, , RESTRICTED COURSES It is the policy of the professional psychology faculty that only students formally accepted into one of the professional psychology programs will be allowed to register for certain theory and practice courses in professional psychology which are required for mental health credentialing.

6 REVIEW OF PROGRESS Students are evaluated annually for academic progress and appropriate professional behavior and development. An unsatisfactory evaluation may lead to probation or, in extreme cases, termination from the program. The Policies and Procedures (or Handbook) for each program contain further information regarding these matters and may be obtained from the program director for each program. CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY The Clinical Psychology program prepares students to become mental health professionals and includes theoretical training and practical experience in psychological assessment and psychotherapy with emphasis on adults and couples. The program is a member of the Council of Applied Masters Programs in Psychology (CAMPP) and adheres to the academic and training standards of CAMPP. Graduates of the program regularly meet the requirements for licensure in Texas as a Professional Counselor and/or Psychological Associate (LPC and LPA). ADMISSIONS: Applicants must apply to the program as described above. Admission is competitive. The program accepts approximately 20 new students each year. The Clinical Psychology faculty review all applications and interview the top candidates to discuss their interest in the field and assess personal readiness for the program. In selecting candidates for the program, the faculty are concerned with (1) academic ability to complete graduate course work, (2) personal maturity and interpersonal skills necessary for mental health practitioners, (3) life experience and professional background which might enhance professional competence, and (4) motivation for and commitment to studying clinical psychology including appropriate career and professional goals. BEHAVIOR ANALYSIS (BA) CERTIFICATION: Students interested in pursuing BA certification along with the clinical psychology degree should consult with both their faculty advisor and the Director of the UHCL BA Program. PRACTICUM: Clinical Practicum is a two-semester sequence which is often the student s first professional training contact with real clients. It is conducted in the university s Psychological Services clinic under the supervision of a faculty supervisor, using two-way mirrors and audio- and videotaping. Practicum has two prerequisites that must be completed prior to registering for the course; see the university Catalog for further information. The program director will consult with each student as each begins the program to determine when the student will take practicum. The two-semester sequence can begin in any semester, including summer. INTERNSHIP: There are a number of facilities in the greater Houston area which provide internship training for students in the program. An intern spends 500 hours, spanning a minimum of two semesters, in a mutually selected facility where he/she is supervised by an appropriately credentialed clinician, preferably a licensed psychologist. Recent internship facilities include the Harris County Psychiatric Center (affiliated with University of Texas Medical School), University of Houston Counseling and Psychological Services, the University of Texas Mental Science Institute, and Texas Department of Criminal Justice, as well as a number of other hospitals, agencies and clinics. Internship may include the summer term. SCHOLARSHIPS: For information on scholarships, see the Scholarships section above. PREREQUISITES: Graduate admission to the university. The program requires five prerequisite undergraduate psychology courses (15 hours): Introductory Psychology, Abnormal Psychology, Social Psychology, Theories of Personality and one (3 additional hours) of upper-level psychology. Preference is given to applicants with all prerequisites completed. 2

8 RECOMMENDED SEQUENCE OF STUDY These are the recommended course sequences for full-time students. In sequences 1 and 2 students complete the program in two academic years but must register in the summer following admissions and the two summers thereafter. It is possible to complete the program in two years without attending the summer after admission by taking five courses in two long semesters, which is, however, a very heavy course load. Sequence 3 offers more flexibility regarding hours per semester and summer enrollment but requires a minimum of one additional semester to complete the degree.

12 SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGY Please note: the School Psychology Student Handbook contains further information regarding the program and its policies and procedures. Program Philosophy/Mission: The UHCL School Psychology program is based on the philosophy that all children can learn and that school psychological specialists privileged to work with children must be ethical, responsible, and competent in addressing each child s individual psycho-educational needs. To accomplish this, students must develop a foundation for school psychological services based on core knowledge and the ability to apply various skills in assessment, intervention, and consultation. The program provides theoretical knowledge and applied training in order to address the behavioral and educational problems of children and adolescents. Focus of Training: The UHCL School Psychology program is based on a collaborative, data-based problem-solving model of training. Specialists in school psychology are trained to engage in a variety of roles and functions as part of a broader education-based model of service delivery and as members of a multidisciplinary team. The major roles and functions involve assessment for learning, developmental, behavioral, and emotional conditions; planning, developing, and assisting in the implementation of academic and behavioral interventions based on assessment data; engaging in individual and group counseling; crisis intervention; consulting with parents, school personnel, and other professionals regarding learning and behavioral difficulties; and conducting activities designed to address both primary and secondary prevention, including inservice training and participation in problem-solving/rti school based committees. Competency in school psychology is measured through the NASP Standards of professional practice. These Standards are outlined in the School Psychology Student Handbook. Accreditation and Licensing: The UHCL School Psychology program is approved by the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP). As graduates of a NASP-approved program and upon successful completion of the national examination in school psychology, students are eligible for the Nationally Certified School Psychologist (NCSP) credential. Graduates also meet the training standards for the Licensed Specialist in School Psychology (LSSP), which is the license required for school psychology practitioners in the state of Texas. Students may also meet the training standards for the Licensed Psychological Associate (LPA) credential depending on the accumulation of additional internship hours and experiences. Both the LSSP and LPA credentials require passing national and state examinations and are issued by the Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists. Re-Specialization Policy: Students who have a graduate degree and are interested in supplementing their academic background in order to obtain school psychology licensure in Texas (LSSP) and/or national certification (NCSP) may apply to the program as outlined for all students, and, if accepted, can develop a modified plan of studies to meet both credentialing and UHCL Program requirements. At minimum, such students will take the School Psychology Practicum, Seminar in Professional School Psychology, Consultation and Internship courses and must meet the substantial equivalent of the UHCL School Psychology Program (the School Psychology Student Handbook has additional information regarding course equivalency). It must be emphasized that the above credentials are granted by boards and not by any academic program. Application to the Program: The School Psychology selection committee accepts only a limited number of students into the program (approximately 12 to 14 students) based on a review and evaluation of the criteria required for application. These criteria include: complete application (application form, vita, essay outlining the applicant s professional goals and demonstrating knowledge of the field of the school psychology, and three letters of recommendation); official transcripts; and a GPA of 3.25 or better; and 12 hours of undergraduate coursework (Introductory Psychology, Child Psychology, Abnormal Psychology, and an upper-level psychology course). A GRE score of 145 for V & Q is preferred. The prerequisites may be waived for students who have graduate degrees, and in some cases, an equivalent course may substitute for a prerequisite. Applicants being considered for admission must also undergo an interview process with the school psychology faculty. Annual Evaluation and Acceptance to Candidacy: Students are evaluated on an annual basis by the School Psychology faculty to determine their progress in the program. Upon completion of the second year of the program, students are also evaluated for Candidacy (suitability for internship), as determined by an evaluation by the field-based practicum supervisors and faculty. Only students accepted to candidacy may proceed to Internship. The School Psychology Student Handbook has additional information regarding this process. Internship: The School Psychology program recognizes internship as the culminating experience in specialty training. The internship consists of a minimum of 1200 clock hours in a school setting and occurs during the final year of training; it is designed to be accomplished on a full-time basis over a period of one academic year. There are some exceptions allowed to the 8

13 requirements noted above, but such exceptions are rare and would occur on an individual basis and in consultation with the School Psychology Internship Coordinator and program faculty. The School Psychology Internship Coordinator arranges each intern s placement in consultation with the potential intern and School Psychology faculty. End-of-Program Evaluation: Students are required to: (a) take the National School Psychology Examination as the graduate comprehensive examination, and (b) submit a portfolio of their work demonstrating that they have competencies in each of the NASP Standards of practice. The national examination is taken after acceptance to candidacy. The portfolio is submitted during the final semester of internship and is evaluated by the School Psychology faculty. Successful completion of the School Psychology program involves a minimum cumulative GPA of at least 3.00 (only courses with a grade of B- or above can be counted toward the degree), obtaining a passing score on the national examination, and obtaining an overall competency rating of adequate/entry level or above on the portfolio evaluation. Coursework: The UHCL School Psychology program is a 70-hour program and is sequentially organized. It is designed to be a full-time program that requires three years to complete. It is not possible to maintain full-time employment in Year 2 of the program. Most course requirements during this year require students to be in public schools for a substantial number of hours during the week. Employment is prohibited in Year 3 as students are completing a full-year of internship under contract with a public school district. Most courses are only offered in the semester listed, and all students must follow this sequence. Any modifications in the sequence must be approved by the School Psychology faculty. The specific curriculum by semester is as follows: SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGY PROGRAM SEQUENCE Summer Fall Year 1 Spring Year 1 PSYC 5031: Human Growth & Dev.
