Our training curriculum is based on the belief that the best therapists are those who have achieved a greater degree of self-awareness and insight. We promote introspection and personal growth as a path to facilitating the growth and development of others. Psychosocial and cultural factors, including class, race, gender, religion and sexual orientation, represent direct and powerful influences on the development of health and pathology.
These factors are inherent in both the training and psychotherapeutic process and must be understood and integrated.
Our clinically experienced faculty exposes students to the major treatment models and trained to develop treatments based upon the needs of the client and the strengths and weaknesses of various treatment models.
Students in the Mental Health Counseling program from SUNY Old Westbury are trained in an integrated model that considers both science and practice. A systematic selection of eclectic techniques is taught based upon a broad and unified theoretical approach.
