2 Master of Arts, Clinical Psychology - Counseling Specialization The M.A. Clinical Psychology, Counseling Specialization provides strong preparation for students wishing to begin professional practice at the Master s level. The program focuses on the development of essential clinical skills that are reinforced via intensive course work and field placement. While a strong theoretical foundation is presented, classes emphasize practical skills development. As such, the program emphasizes a generalist approach to theory, conceptualization and technique. During clinical placement students learn to work with populations ranging from children through adolescents, adults, and the aged. Acknowledged for its commitment to diversity, The Chicago School recognizes that service to a diverse community plays a vital role in psychology. The Counseling Specialization embraces this commitment through the integration of multicultural education and diversity throughout its curriculum; successful students demonstrate an appreciation for and competency in this area. Likewise, the faculty reflects experience in graduate level teaching and clinical practice with diverse clinical populations. Admission Requirements Application to The Chicago School s Clinical Psychology, Counseling Specialization Program is open to any person who has earned a bachelor s degree from an accredited institution and who meets other entrance requirements. Applicants will be judged on their overall ability to do graduate work. Factors that are considered in admission are: GPA from undergraduate and any graduate schools, successful work history after completion of the baccalaureate degree, the required admission essay, and letters of recommendation from academic professors or professional or volunteer experience supervisors. Generally, an undergraduate GPA of a 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale is required for admission. The Counseling Specialization has two specific required undergraduate courses that must be completed prior to enrollment with a grade earned of C or better (a course in psychology and a course in either statistics or research methods). The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is not required, however students who have taken the exam may submit their scores to enhance their application. Scores should be sent directly to the school (GRE School Code: 1119) for consideration. Please see the application for detailed instructions and information regarding application requirements, application deadlines, and letters of recommendation. Applications must be submitted with a $50.00 (USD) application fee in order to be evaluated. TOEFL, International Credentials, and International Students TOEFL: If English is not your primary language, you must submit official TOEFL scores with your application (TOEFL School Code: 7161). International students who received a bachelor s degree from an accredited United States institution are exempt from this requirement. International credentials: Applicants with international credentials must obtain and submit an official course-by-course evaluation through an evaluation agency such as World Education Services (www.wes.org) or Educational Credential Evaluators Inc (www.ece.org). In addition to the agency evaluation, all official graduate and undergraduate transcripts must be submitted. International students: International students must have a completed application by the general consideration deadline. This will allow sufficient time to obtain the additional documentation required to study in the United States. In addition, once accepted, international students must supply documentation of financial support showing the ability to finance their education at The Chicago School. An I-20 visa will not be issued without this documentation. Applicant Notification The Chicago School reviews applications on a rolling basis. Once review begins, complete applications will be considered by the Admission Committee and applicants will be notified regarding the admission decision. The Chicago School does not share information or provide any feedback regarding admission decisions. If a student is offered admission, in order to secure a place in the incoming class, a non-refundable tuition deposit of $500 will be required by the deposit deadline indicated in the offer of admission. The non-refundable deposit will be applied in full toward the student s tuition upon enrollment

3 Policies Transfer of Credit Prior graduate course work, if within the area of study, may be eligible for transfer of credit. Students accepted to the program may petition by submitting a Petition for Transfer/Waiver of Credit** and all required documentation to the Office of Academic Records. The decision to accept transfer credit is solely that of the school which reserves the right to require satisfactory performance on an examination before awarding a transfer of credit. Satisfactory completion of a competency examination is required before transfer of credit is awarded when the course in question has been taken more than five years prior to admission. No credit will be transferred for course work that is more than 10 years old. Transfers of credit are subject to the following conditions. Transferred course credit is restricted to graduate level courses from a regionally accredited graduate degree granting institution. Transfer of credit is awarded only for required courses. Transfer of credit is not granted for clinical practica or for internships. Transfer of credit is granted only for courses in which the grade obtained was a B or higher. (Pass/Fail grades are not eligible.) Each hour of credit accepted for transfer will be assessed a fee of $75. A maximum of 12 semester hours of credit may be transferred. Waiver of Courses Any domestic or international student with previous graduate course work may request a waiver** of additional course work. Waiver of courses does not reduce the total number of hours of course work to be completed at The Chicago School; it permits students to substitute course work as approved by the department chair. An international student, who has completed an undergraduate course that, in the judgment of the department chair, is equivalent to a required course at The Chicago School, may apply for the course to be waived. Waiver will not apply to undergraduate courses offered by U.S. educational institutions. Students may seek a waiver for a total of 12 credit hours. Those seeking both waiver and transfer of credit hours may not exceed a total of 12 credit hours. **The Petition for Transfer of Credit/Waiver is available on the school website under Student Services, Student Services Forms. Please submit all required documentation with each petition. Any credit approved for transfer will not be added to the student s academic record until after the second week of their first semester. Residency Requirement It is expected that students will fulfill all degree requirements through courses offered at The Chicago School. Under unusual circumstances, and subject to the approval of the department chair, a student may be permitted to complete certain course requirements at another institution. Satisfactory Progress Matriculated students must be continuously enrolled in the program until graduation unless granted an approved leave of absence. Satisfactory progress semester hours do not include waiver or transfer credit hours.

Students must submit the petition and be in good standing in their program for the Master s degree to be awarded

4 The Program Philosophy The M.A. in Clinical Psychology, Counseling Specialization Program has adopted the practitioner-scholar model and the National Council of Schools and Programs of Professional Psychology s (NCSPP) core competency models. These models are predicated on the belief that a competent practitioner must have both a broad knowledge of the scientific and theoretical principles in the clinical practice of psychology and the ability to apply that knowledge to specific clinical situations. Additionally, the program incorporates the eight content areas outlined by the National Board of Certified Counselors, to prepare those students seeking professional counselor licensure and desiring to begin professional practice at the Master's level. The program does not advocate any single theoretical orientation. Rather, it provides students with a generalist foundation in theory and technique. Students are continually challenged to reflect on the art and craft of professional practice, as well as on its scientific basis. Objectives By completing the Clinical Psychology, Counseling Specialization Program, students will: 1. Develop essential diagnostic, therapeutic, and consultative skills in order to work with a variety of clinical populations, and a variety of emotional and psychological conditions. 2. Learn the theoretical frameworks and scientific bases of clinical psychology at the Master s level. 3. Learn research methodologies and be able to critically evaluate research as it relates to clinical psychology. 4. Learn the ethical and professional guidelines of clinical psychology and counseling. 5. Understand and appreciate the impact of diversity and cultural issues in the field of clinical psychology. Ethics and Professional Behavior The Chicago School expects that all clinical counseling students will be knowledgeable of and adhere to the Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct, as published by the American Psychological Association, as well as the Code of Ethics of the American Counseling Association. In addition, no student shall obtain part- or full-time employment that is beyond the scope of their cumulative training in the field of psychology or counseling and shall not use titles governed by licensure statutes, unless so licensed by the state. A student who fails to adhere to this policy or otherwise fails to demonstrate the appropriate ethics required for practice in the field of professional psychology is subject to discipline and possible removal. Certification/Licensure The Counseling Specialization incorporates the eight content areas outlined by the National Board of Certified Counselors and provides the academic requirements to prepare students seeking Professional Counselor licensure in Illinois (LPC and LCPC). Students must consult the licensure requirements for states in which they plan to reside post graduation. M.A. Clinical Counseling Program Competencies Under the umbrella of the practitioner-scholar model, the program organizes the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for high quality clinical practice into seven competencies that correspond to our institutional goals of scholarship, diversity, professional behavior and ethics, and professional practice. The NCSPP s Core Competency Model (McHolland, 1992) offers the foundation upon which the program based its own articulation of competency. Following are definitions of the M.A. Clinical Psychology, Counseling Specialization competencies. Scholarship Research and Evaluation: Competency in research and evaluation is indicated by the ability to organize, synthesize and interpret scholarly information; the ability to design and critique approaches to systematic inquiry; the awareness of limits of certainty in different types of clinical inquiry; the understanding of foundational scientific knowledge in the field; and the recognition of scholarly knowledge production as a social, cultural and political process. Finally, scholarly findings should guide/direct clinical practice/interventions. Consultation and Education: Competency in consultation and education is indicated by effective presentation skills and the ability to teach others through oral or written presentation of material; the ability to provide feedback regarding a client or system issue to multiple sources; an understanding of the means of facilitating and evaluating the growth of knowledge, skills, and attitudes in a learner; effective peer consultation and constructive feedback; and the development of productive relationships within community helping networks. Diversity Cultural and Individual Differences: This competency is conceptualized as the recognition that culture is best understood from a broad perspective and includes, but is not limited to, identities related to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, age, religious belief, and ability. It is evidenced by the ability to articulate one s personal culture and its impact on held values, relationships and worldview; an understanding of worldview, and the psychological impact of privilege, prejudice, oppression, culture and sociopolitical structures; the ability to differentiate between individual variation, characteristic variation across culture and human dysfunction in development, attitudes and reactions; and appreciation for the impact of culture on the historical and philosophical foundations of psychology

5 Professional Behavior and Ethics Ethical and Professional Conduct: Competency in ethical and professional behavior is evidenced by the ability to apply ethical and professional standards to interactions with clients and with others (peers, supervisors, faculty, professionals in other disciplines, etc); socialization into the profession through advisement, modeling, and education; an understanding of legal obligations that may or may not conflict with ethical guidelines; the development of skills in reflective practice and quality control; effective functioning in multiple professional roles; and a commitment to life-long learning. Professional Practice Relationship: Competency in relationship is indicated by the capacity to develop and maintain a constructive therapeutic alliance with clients and a constructive working alliance with others (including peers, faculty, supervisors, professionals in other disciplines, etc); openness to feedback and accurate self-reflection; an appreciation of the use of self in a therapeutic relationship; the development of empathy, respect for others, and interpersonal relatedness; and an understanding of cultural values, worldview, and history in cross-cultural relationships. Assessment: Assessment is conceptualized to include both formal and informal assessment activities. Competency in assessment is indicated by proficiency in the interpretation of standard assessment tools; the collection and incorporation of information from multiple sources to inform decision making and diagnosis; effective clinical inference that links gathered data with resulting diagnosis and recommendations; effective communication of assessment results and recommendations; the identification and conceptualization of client strengths and limitations; and culturally sensitive choice of assessment methods that will comprise a formal assessment. Intervention: Competency in intervention is indicated by the ability to develop and present plausible formulations for understanding psychological phenomenon using theory; use theory to guide formulations regarding the conditions that create, maintain, and change behavior or distress; effectively implement and revise treatment strategies; evaluate the effectiveness of a chosen intervention approach or strategy; recognize the limitations of theories as they relate to individual and system functioning and change; and adjust traditional models of treatment and treatment planning to better meet diverse clients needs. Professional Development Group All students are required to enroll in a Professional Development Group during their first two semesters at the school. A student's Professional Development Group faculty member automatically becomes her/his advisor. The Professional Development Group class is graded on a pass/fail basis. Practicum and Internship The practica and internships require three credit hours for two consecutive semesters - a total of six credit hours. Please note: students who do not complete Internship I by the add/drop deadline of the following term must register for Internship II for one credit in the proceeding semester. The practicum and internship is a clinical training field placement where the student accumulates a minimum of 700 clock hours (16-20 hours per week for 9-12 months) of supervised clinical experience in a mental health agency or for a psychological services provider. The practica/internships serve to integrate the theoretical and practical aspects of the education of the professional counselor. It allows students to become familiar with professional collaboration and consultation in a clinical setting. The director of placement and training awards grades for practicum and internship based on the evaluation of the site supervisor, the student's performance in practicum and internship seminar groups, the completion of the requisite practicum/internship hours, and the submission of all required forms to the Office of Placement and Training. Dismissal from a practicum/internship is considered extremely serious, will result in immediate referral to the Placement and Training Committee, and may result in dismissal from the school. Transfer of credit for the practicum/internship is not granted and practicum/internship requirements are never waived. Further details regarding this area are found in the Practicum/Internship Manual available from the director of clinical training. Permission to Apply to Practicum and Internship Students must express their intent to apply for his/her practicum/internship. Faculty, during student review meetings, will review each student s progress in the program, determining which students have met the necessary requirements to apply to practicum/internship. Students approved to apply to practicum/internship will be reviewed again in summer (following the completion of the prerequisites) for final permission to proceed to practicum/internship. Counseling Competency Examination (CCE) The Counseling Competency Examination (CCE) consists of a written paper chosen from the student s internship caseload. It is completed during the spring term of the student s internship seminar (CC499). The student must successfully pass the CCE in order to fulfill the requirements of the Therapy Practicum Seminar. Rationale In awarding the Master s degree in Clinical Psychology, The Chicago School certifies that the graduate has attained a high level of competency in counseling assessment, case formulation, counseling planning, and implementation, as well as the knowledge and skills base that underlie these abilities. As such, successful completion of the CCE represents the culmination of the academic and clinical training at the Master s level

6 Preparation The student should have a foundational understanding of issues pertaining to human development and developmental assessment, family life cycle development, group dynamics, individual assessment, social and cultural foundations of behavior, maladaptive behavior and diagnosis, ethical practice and decision making, treatment planning, and substance abuse and career counseling where appropriate. Review these areas as needed. Components of the CCE The Counseling Competency Examination (CCE) is composed of three (3) distinct components with the purpose of demonstrating proficiency in the core competencies of the M.A. in Clinical Psychology program. This is considered a cumulative examination that should illustrate that a student has acquired the knowledge and skills necessary to graduate from the program. I. The Written Report The Written Report of the CCE is a demonstration of the student s ability to professionally synthesize and communicate clinical information. The report is comprised of distinct sections that reflect information most commonly required in a variety of clinical settings (i.e. assessment, theoretical formulation, diagnostic formulation, treatment plans, etc). If you fail the written portion of the CCE, you will be required to complete another CCE with a new client. If you fail the second written CCE, you will automatically fail the seminar course. II. The Taped Session and Transcript The student will be required to submit an audio or video tape and transcripts of sessions with their client. The taped session should be a fair and adequate representation of the student s current skill development. It should provide sufficient verbal participation from the student and the client to allow adequate assessment of the student s skills and of the therapeutic relationship. If you fail the audio/video tape portion, you will be required to complete a five page in-depth reflection paper on your taped session. Additional requirements may be made by your instructor. A second failure in this area will result in an automatic fail for the seminar course. III. The Oral Examination During class you will be required to present your case and defend your work. The case presentation will be 50 minutes and include an overview of the client(s), your theoretical formulation, your treatment plan, and relevant sections of your tape. If you fail this component, you will be asked to complete a second oral defense with your professor and another core faculty member. If it is failed a second time, you will automatically fail the seminar course. Evaluation of the CCE The Master s program CCE is the means by which program faculty can evaluate students along several competency domains within the fields of clinical psychology and professional counseling. You will be graded on all three (3) components: the written report, audio/videotape, and oral defense. Detailed CCE guidelines will be provided to students at the beginning of their practicum/internship and seminar
