A Human Connection
A professional counselor can play many roles: A mental health practitioner, a researcher, an administrator, a social justice advocate. But above all, a counselor is a person. A counselor’s area of expertise is building human connection.
This takes practice.
Students in our program receive hands-on learning experiences working with hired actors playing the role of their clients. They practice counseling skills first in a safe environment, one in which they can learn from their triumphs and mistakes. They receive consistent feedback and instruction from professors actively involved in the field.
They learn to connect, human to human.
