  1. Hi all, I am looking for an affordable and quality masters program that will eventually allow me to become a practicing licensed clinician upon graduation. This could either be an MSW (accredited by CSWE), an MFT/CFT program (accredited by COAMFTE), or a Clinical Mental Health Counseling program (accredited by CACREP). While money is a primary concern when it comes to making my decision about a program, I will also not sacrifice the quality of my education just because of the price. I am hoping to hear others' ideas about great programs that are not overwhelmingly expensive. Thanks!
  2. Hi there!! I have been doing extensive research and trying to decide which Online MSW programs to apply too. I am really curious about anyones experience on the program you chose and if you are happy with it. I'm a bit nervous to bite the bullet on an online program, but I can't financially swing something totally in-person since I'll be working to pay for school!! A little bit about me: - This would be my second Master's, first in Public Administration - Decided I wanted to transition to clinical Social Work with an emphasis in counseling. - Considering Simmons and Case Western, but horrified on the reviews from Simmons. It sounds good on paper, but hard to tell what it is actually like!!
  3. Hey everyone -- Just browsing this forum has been helpful as there is a lot of bad or misleading information online about various psychology/social work/counseling programs. I was hoping others could help with some advice about my specific objective and situation. Application competitiveness aside, I'd appreciate any thoughts about/answers to the questions below. Thank you in advance! Objective: I'd like to become a clinical psychotherapist, transitioning out of my work in public health (social determinants of health, more specifically) to direct clinical practice. Situation: Ideally, I would like to complete a master's or doctoral program part-time (nights/weekend/etc., or distance) while maintaining full-time employment/income. I have lived in DC for 7 years and would like to remain here for the entirety of my program. I already hold a Master of Public Health from Emory University (Policy Concentration) and a Bachelor of Arts from Penn State University (English/Writing and Health Policy) I have been told by several therapist friends (ranging from MSWs to PhDs and MDs) to pursue a (second) master's degree as that is all that is needed to practice as a therapist. They have all emphasized that you can earn a significant amount in private practice, especially in a market like D.C. I would qualify as a non-traditional student in that my professional and academic background are outside of social work, psychology, etc. I have worked in health policy (4 years total, including some mental health policy work and nonprofit board service) as well as entrepreneurship (founded and ran a startup for 3 years). Questions: Are there any venerable part-time and/or online PsyD or PhD programs that I should consider? If I could complete a doctoral program in a reasonable timeframe (likely a PsyD given my primary focus on practice), that might be preferable to a master's programs. The challenge I've seen is that most of the programs I've researched require full-time students (i.e. no evenings or weekend classes). Among the various MSW/MA/MS programs in clinical social work, mental health counseling, etc., do you have any recommendation if my end goal is clinical psychotherapy? Given my above objective and situation, do you have any other thoughts about vetting programs for fit (i.e. things to look for as I research programs)? Is there any possibility that I could acquire merit-based aid for master's programs like these or a part-time PsyD? Given my location in DC, are there any specific programs/departments you would recommend? Again, many thanks for any help you can provide!
  4. Hi all, angsting about this decision. They’re all terminal masters in counseling programs. I’ll also be hearing back from Columbia Teachers College in late April (recommendations not received in time for first wave of consideration). I’m also on the waitlist at Northwestern. I’ve received an offer for a graduate assistantship at Fordham but otherwise sporadic small scholarships and I have about a $6000 education award from serving in Americorps. I have an interview with the Wright Institute so not admitted yet. Otherwise Hunter is generally the most affordable. If a program is really above and beyond another program though I think it may be worth the investment. Any thoughts on how the quality of these programs compare?
  5. Would anyone be able to offer me suggestions on which doctoral-level programs I should apply to based on my interests? I have spent countless hours researching programs but it feels like I'm getting nowhere. I'm not sure if I should go for a PsyD or a PhD, and if I should choose clinical or counseling psychology (although I think I'm leaning more towards clinical). When I am done with grad school, I want to work in a group practice (and eventually a private practice). I want a program that will well prepare me for the clinical aspect of a career in psychology. My fear is that if I go to a school that is too research-oriented, I wont be prepared enough as a practitioner. I want to focus on treating people that don't have severe mental disorders (I want to focus on depression, anxiety, eating disorders, etc.). I also don't really love doing research (I understand that some research is necessary). Do you know of Phd programs or PsyD programs that are (much) more practice based than research based? Any advice that you have would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
  6. Hi everyone! I'm getting started and planning ahead for the fall when I'll be applying to PSU's Counselor Education program, and I was wondering if anyone had any words of advice -- I applied to the PSU MSW program last year and wasn't accepted, which actually turned out to be fine because it made me reflect on exactly what program to pursue, and I've settled on an MFT Counselor track in the Graduate School of Education at PSU. That said, the application process last year was so stressful and it was obviously tough to be rejected, so I'm trying to come back much stronger this year. I have an undergraduate GPA of 3.4, and I have a bachelor's degree in psychology with a minor in sociology. I've volunteered in a domestic violence shelter for about a year (it will be 1.5 years by the time applications are due) doing direct-service work with participants, and have worked in administration at a couple of nonprofits for the last 6 years. I'm hoping to take the prerequisite 'Intro to Counseling' course at PSU this fall as a non-degree seeking student to get a little more face-time at the university and possibly make some connections there (the admissions advisor I spoke to said it was a good starting point). Does anyone have any wisdom to share? For the MSW program, the piece that I wasn't fully aware of was how much emphasis they put on direct social work experience, and I think that's why I wasn't accepted. I'm curious to know if there are any pieces like that in the GSE Counselor master's program that I should try and address now. Thanks!
  7. I am considering going back to school for an MFT or MSW here in California so I can practice as a therapist. However, I am an American and British citizen who will likely move back to England at some point given I have some family in the country and was partially raised there. So I am just wondering if there's any American therapists on here who have moved to England and managed to qualify with the BPS, and how that whole process worked? If not, does anybody have an idea what to do in my situation? Are the qualifications about the same? Or would I have to re-train entirely/do a year extra if I moved back to London? If anybody could give me any advice, that would be brilliant. Thanks so much!!!
