Clinical Mental Health Counseling - Integrative

Our courses are well designed for didactic and applied learning. In the classroom, students will explore situational factors, address learning goals for each course that meet CACREP and licensure board standards, and receive assessment results at several points throughout each course. An evidence-based course design, developed by Dr. Dee Fink, has been adopted to guide the program course design and to promote significant learning in Clinical Mental Health Counseling (CMHC) training.

Integrated course design (ICD) exposes students to a variety of learning activities that enhance the integration of material from the classroom into applied clinical practice.

Integrated course design includes:

  • Students read course content materials and video learning before class meeting.
  • Students apply course content through experiential learning during course time.
  • Students participate in collective assessment formats and team-based learning.
