2017-18 Catalog

Counseling Psychology

The Counseling Psychology program offers 4 degrees: M.Ed. (and certification) in School Counseling (48 credits); M.Ed. in Counseling and Human Services (60 credits); M.Ed. in International Counseling (36 credits); and Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology.  The program also offers a Lehigh graduate certificate in International Counseling.

The M.Ed. in School Counseling is approved for certification (pre-K-12) by the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE); the M.Ed. program in Counseling and Human Services is accredited by the Master’s in Psychology and Counseling Accreditation Council (MPCAC), and the Ph.D. program is accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA).

Our counseling psychology programs (Ph.D. and M.Ed. in Counseling and Human Services) adhere to The Benchmark Competencies for Professional Psychology (Campbell, Fouad, Grus, Hatcher, Leahy, & McCutcheon, 2013).  The M.Ed. Program in School Counseling adheres to the PDE competencies for pre-K-12 School Counselors.

Counseling Psychology prepares students as competent and effective scientist-practitioners who demonstrate and strive for self-awareness, knowledge, and skills, undergirded by an attentiveness and responsiveness to multiculturalism and social justice. 

Students who complete the M.Ed. in School or International Counseling typically seek positions in public, private, and international educational settings as school counselors.  Students who complete the M.Ed. in Counseling and Human Services seek a variety of positions, including community and agency counseling, independent practice, doctoral-level work, business and industry, and they often seek LPC licensure.  Students completing the Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology typically seek positions as professional psychologists in hospitals and mental health centers, university counseling centers, independent practice, government positions (for example, Veterans Administration, public health) or as university professors.

Students and faculty are active in local communities, doing research in gender-based violence, maternal attachment and emotional regulation, and NIH-funded projects on Latino health behaviors, and with inner city adolescents in the Lehigh Valley.  The Counseling Psychology program also runs a summer institute on international counseling and conducts training of counselors globally.  In addition, the Community Voices Clinic (CVC) is a school-based integrated mental health clinic, located at Broughal Middle and Donegan Elementary Schools, that provides mental health services to uninsured and underinsured families and communities in Southside Bethlehem.  Many of our students co-publish and co-present nationally with faculty members.

Doctor of Philosophy in Counseling Psychology

Currently, the doctoral program requires a total of 103 credits, which are composed of 30 master's level credits plus 70 doctoral level credits. A student who enters the counseling psychology doctoral program already holding a master's degree, regardless of where the degree was obtained, may be exempted by her or his advisor from taking up to a total of the 30 credits of required master's level coursework, with the exemption granted based on a review of the student’s transcript and/or course syllabi to ensure that the course or courses were of similar content to the course offered by Lehigh. These exempted credits do count toward the total needed for the doctoral degree (currently 103), but will not appear on the student’s Lehigh transcript. After conferring with his or her advisor, the student will complete an internal petition to have these credits exempted, and this petition must be approved by the program director.

After the student has completed the first 15 hours of graduate work, the student is specifically reviewed for full admission. This review is completed during the annual review process for any student who has completed 15 hours. The student's coursework and performance and progress in the doctoral program are reviewed by the faculty. Any questions about the student's progress and plans are raised and discussed, and a vote is then taken to admit the student. The College of Education then writes a letter of admittance to the student specifying the time line for completion of all degree requirements. Students entering with a bachelor’s degree have 10 years to complete all degree requirements. Students entering with a master's degree have 7 years to complete all degree requirements

1

The purpose of the doctoral qualifying research project is to demonstrate research competence and to lay the groundwork for the student's dissertation. The doctoral qualifying project must be completed before application for the pre-doctoral internship can be approved. The project is research undertaken by the student in consultation with the research advisor and is presented in two forms:

  1. A written manuscript in APA (6th edition) format in a condition suitable for submission in a professional journal (with one variance; see below). Acceptance for publication is not required to meet this requirement, but it is expected that research projects will be submitted for publication in a timely fashion following completion.
  2. Presentation of the project at a public colloquium.
2

Prior to, and including the semester in which a proposal is approved, students must register for 3 dissertation credits each fall and spring semester. Similarly, for the semester(s) following the approval of the dissertation proposal, students must take 1 maintenance of candidacy credit up until, and including, the semester in which the dissertation is defended. The only exception to this policy is during the time the student is on internship, during which only internship credits need to be taken. The matter of taking these dissertation credits should be taken seriously. Students who do not follow this procedure, and take fewer credits than required, will find that they will not be able to graduate until back-credits are paid for.
