  1. @missmusical I think it's pretty trustworthy, it seems to me that it's the programs being in charge of entering the dates into this calendar.
  2. That I do not have much experience with. I think there's a separate panel for social work under "Forum>>The Menu>>Professional programs>>Social Work".
  3. Congrats on your offers! CMHC programs focus more on the practice side, and my impression of CMHC coursework is that assignments are typically more discussion and reflection oriented than being traditionally intellectually challenging. The constructivist nature of counselor education allows different perspectives and explanations of a single issue so as long as you put in the work and can back up your points with logic and evidence you should be able to do well. Research methods and statistics are pretty basic in CMHC programs. However, it could be emotionally tolling at times due to the intro
  4. Check out the MA Clinical Psychology program at Towson University. I had a colleague in my clinical internship who went there and she was doing clinical work while working on a research thesis at the same time, and she's licensed as a counselor after graduation.

  7. You'll be fine! If six people proofread your statement and none of them noticed, it is not likely your POIs are going to make a giant news out of it. You only know about these 2 minor typos because you read your statement 500 times, your POIs will not do the same because they have a humongous number of application to review and also finish their teaching work and prepare for the holiday season and new semester. Also, if you run into someone who invalidates who you are and how hard you worked to get to this point just based on two typos, you need to reevaluate if this person is fit to supervise

  11. I don't reckon any PI has that much time to be that nit-picky with applications. If a PI wants to use their time figuring out who taught a course in which one applicant (out of many) did not get a satisfactory grade years ago and conduct a full on investigation on this one single score, you should serious reconsider if you would want to work with this person. Even if what you did ended up on your criminal/academic offense records, in the most extreme case, you'll just respond to those legal questions honestly in your application and you'll have the chance to explain what happened and what you
  12. Hey, I graduated from a CMHC program and I think these are somethings that you should consider in making a decision. CACREP programs typically consist the same coursework, and should not differ significantly between programs. Most programs would use a mix of asynchronous and synchronous teaching, but core courses like counseling techniques, theories, diversity, ethics, human development, diagnosis, psychopathology, practicum and internship should almost always be taught synchronously. But you should consider cohort size and class size to get the best out of the program. Some programs are
  13. I see there are some misunderstandings here. What I am saying is that it is quite standard for the faculty members of CACREP-accredited Master's in Counseling programs to obtain their PhD in Counselor Education and Supervision instead of any field of psychology. I did some research after reading your comment, and I noticed that it is also true that some Master's in Counseling programs have faculty members from other psychology-related fields, only if the universities also house an APA-accredited PhD program in counseling psychology. So I think this is something original post should be thinking
  14. I feel like research opportunity is typically very rare in Master-level counseling programs. CACREP-accredited programs usually only include one basic research course in the curriculum, and it is not expected that you get any further training in research methods or stats solely from the program. It is further important to note that most faculty members in counseling got their degree In Counselor Education, a very different trajectory compared to the field of psychology, and their research may not be relevant to the more common topics in psychology. You are expected to complete your training al
