Professional counseling is the application of mental health, psychological and human development principles. The CMHC program uses a research-based clinical practice approach in coursework and internship and students develop competencies and professional identity as clinical mental health counselors.
Components of the class include the evolution of healthcare finance and reimbursement, revenue and expense classifications, financial reporting, budgeting, financial analysis, health coursework of public health agencies, and the current and anticipated financial impact of healthcare reform on the healthcare industry and health services organizations.
Students are trained to be culturally responsive. Beyond the coursework common to all the majors in psychology, the health psychology major has two required courses.
