Clinical Track

The clinical track is the core of Council’s training program. This program provides training for mental health professionals and clinicians and prepares them to function on an independent level as marriage and family therapists. Students will learn the importance of context in organizing human behavior, and to possess and demonstrate the key conceptual, perceptual and intervention skills. There is also an exploration of the personal values required for practice as a systems oriented therapist.

This program provides a comprehensive training experience; bringing together academic coursework, clinical practice, and supervision.
