Program Overview

  • The purpose of the Counseling Psychology program at Carlow University is to prepare doctoral level generalists for the practice of Psychology. Training includes strong preparation in assessment and intervention for behavioral health disorders. A unique feature of the program is its emphasis on training psychologists who recognize, understand and act upon the oppressive social structures that often play a role in the experience of distress among those unequally advantaged within society.

    This emphasis is in keeping with the long-held value of social justice within the discipline of Counseling Psychology, and in fact is an attempt to move the field forward by actualizing this value within a training program.
