Advances in neurobiology and increased public awareness have turned a spotlight on the profound biopsychosocial consequences of traumatic experiences on the lives of people. At the same time, growing numbers of those in need of such services, including military veterans, international refugees, and domestic violence survivors, are unable to access the services they need.
At Lesley University, Clinical Mental Health Counseling - Trauma Studies Specialization faculty-practitioners work alongside you to address these urgent challenges so you can help people sustain hope and break out of unconstructive behaviors and patterns.
You’ll explore the emerging field of post-traumatic therapy, with a focus on counseling those with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Discover culturally appropriate community and crisis interventions that foster resilience in the aftermath of violence. And investigate how art and play therapy can facilitate change in children and adolescents.
By completing clinical internships at two of Lesley’s 400+ approve sites throughout Greater Boston and across New England, you’ll have all the experience and expertise you need to apply to for your Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) credential.
