  1. Master's programs in clinical psych tend to be research-oriented and focused on preparing students for doctoral training. Is anyone aware of master's programs that are applied/terminal programs that allow you to become licensed as a professional counsellor or psychological associate? I know of one, which I am currently enrolled in but am curious to see whether there any similar programs out there. Sidebar: I know that a master's in clinical mental health counselling is the alternative to clinical psychology programs for those who aren't interested in research; however, I'm focused on clinical
  2. I realize that this thread is a bit outdated; however, I was wondering if anyone who applied to Western's counselling psych program would be willing to share any helpful tips with me- be it on the statement of purpose, the interview process, or simply useful information regarding the program.

  5. Hey, Can you give any advice on the statement of purpose/the interview process for mental health counseling programs? I'm considering BU but overall am struggling with being able to coherently express answers to questions such as why I chose the particular program, what I would like least about it, or my major strengths and weaknesses in relation to being a prospective counsellor.
