PEIPSYC Posted June 3, 2015 Share Posted June 3, 2015 (edited) Hello! I am looking for some insight for best preparing for applying to graduate programs. I am interested in counselling psychology programs, but have read on other threads that these are being readily replaced by Mental Health Counselling programs. Is the accreditation different/better? Should I not be considering counselling programs and instead be looking for these alternatively named mental health ones instead? I'd love to hear from people currently in various (Canadian) programs - advice about the application process, why you chose your institution, how interviews go, and where you plan to go after you finish your program. I am considering a really broad spectrum of schools across the country and it would be nice to hear about other experiences and what is out there. Being brutally honest about the competitive nature will only be enlightening. I have also been advised that the M.A. versus M.Ed. programs are are personal decision. I am working on an undergraduate thesis this year. Should I want to be looking at one or the other in particular and what are the real benefits of each option? Lastly, for filling out my CV and resume, what were some of the best volunteer experiences you've had? Would you recommend them to someone interested in the field of counselling? Thanks everyone!
