About

This Clinical Mental Health Counseling - School and Community Counseling Specialization is designed for students at Lesley University who wish to work in both school and community settings. Candidates are required to engage in training at both community and school placement sites. 

Overview

Through our graduate program in Clinical Mental Health Counseling - School and Community Counseling Specialization at Lesley University, you’ll work with children and adolescents, as well as their families, to build an environment of respect, cooperation, and support.

Learning outcomes

At Lesley, we recognize the importance of regarding schools and communities as ideal places to promote growth, healing, and social change. You’ll benefit from our ongoing partnerships with public schools in the Boston area, and also from our reputation among principals and districts as New England’s largest and most respected provider of teacher education.

Here, you’ll receive training that integrates school counseling with mind-body behavioral health, trauma studies, and social justice advocacy. As you gain the skills to guide youth toward personal and academic goals, you’ll learn to recognize multiple worldviews and the power of connection in the context of learning and counseling.

Choose to specialize in adjustment counseling or guidance counseling, and complete two internships in schools within Lesley’s extensive network. You’ll graduate prepared for professional licensure and ready to make a meaningful difference in students’ lives.
