Evidence-Based Practices Track

All students receive intensive training in using Evidence-Based Practices (EBP) in mental health that have proven effectiveness across a variety of populations. Near the end of the first year students select to pursue an Adult or Child EBP focus. Both prepare the student to work with clients at all levels of functionality. A required 700 hour internship in the second year may be served in a variety of settings. The internship experience fulfills the 700 hour state requirements for pre-degree experience. Students with experience in delivering EBP have proven to be in high demand by employers.
