The doctoral program at Carlow University is wholly committed to the foundational values of the discipline of Counseling Psychology. Therefore, the educational philosophy of the Program is based in part on both the Model Training Program in Counseling Psychology (Murdock, Alcorn, Heesacker, & Stoltenberg, 1998) and on the core themes of the discipline which were initially suggested by Gelso & Fretz (2001).The themes uniquely characterize Counseling Psychology and distinguish it from other substantive disciplines within the broader field. These themes were elaborated upon by the Council of Counseling Psychology Training Programs and are as follows:
To that end, your education in both general and counseling psychology is characterized by a solid foundation in theory, research and practice including skills in assessment, diagnosis, and treatment for application in a wide-range of practice settings and for use across the full spectrum of adjustment and psychological disorders. The program strives to train you as a psychologist who will make a difference in the communities in which they work through reflective practice, scholarship, teaching, activism and research.
