Program Description

  • The post-master's graduate certificate, offered at the Dixon University Center in Harrisburg, was developed by faculty in the Department of Counseling and College Student Personnel to meet the ongoing continuing education needs of community, mental health, and college and school counselors.
  • The four courses in the program, which focus on couples and family therapy, were designed to be flexible in order to accommodate the demanding schedules as well as geographic locations of counselors and mental health practitioners.
  • Enhancing the theory-based classroom discussions is a clinical component providing practice in couples/family therapy. These sessions will help serve clients in the SU community clinic, Growing Edges. Under direct faculty supervision, students will practice basic and advanced counseling skills, while crafting and delivering end of session messages.
  • To earn a Couples and Family Counseling Certificate, students must have a master's degree in counseling or an allied mental health field and complete the following four courses with at least a 3.00 GPA. The successful completion of each course will be denoted on the student's official Shippensburg University graduate transcript.
