Help Human Beings Achieve Their Full Potential
Consider a career as a licensed* professional:
- Clinical Psychologist
- Marriage & Family Therapist
- Professional Clinical Counselor**
- Professional Counselor
- Mental Health Counselor
*Eligible for licensing in California, Washington, and other states
**Potential to meet other state pre-degree MA licensing requirements
All programs in the School of Clinical Psychology are designed to be compatible with requirements that will permit students to practice professionally. Saybrook graduates already work as licensed psychologists in many states and Canadian provinces.
Important Notes About Licensure
Licensure regulations differ from state to state, and students who wish to pursue licensure are strongly advised to contact the licensing board in the state/province in which they plan to practice in order to obtain the detailed requirements. Students should follow the specific requirements of their chosen state or province (i.e., courses, faculty contact hours, internship) in planning and completing their degree program curriculum.
Saybrook does not have an on-site internship program. Students locate appropriate internships and supervision in their geographic area, working in conjunction with Saybrook’s Internship Coordinator.
Rooted in humanistic psychology, Saybrook’s clinical programs study human experience in deeply subjective, historical, contextual, cross-cultural, and spiritual contexts. Each program is designed to promote health and wholeness as practitioners who are positioned to effect positive change through service and leadership in their chosen clinical field.
- MA Psychology, Counseling Specialization: Seattle (LIOS) Residential Program for licensure in Washington state/ This program employs a pedagogy that is grounded in the integration of three core elements: applied behavioral science, systems theory, and experiential learning. This program shares a first year core curriculum with the MA Organizational Systems Leadership in Organization Development program.
- MA Psychology, Marriage and Family Therapy/Professional Clinical Counseling Specialization: A career-focused, clinical program with practicum training, this program prepares you for multiple licenses and empowers you to shape and craft your professional development and practice orientation. Focus on career opportunities while remaining true to your humanistic principles and helping others.
- PhD Psychology, Clinical Specialization: You will be strategically positioned to effect change and help others through the application of humanistic, existential and transpersonal principles. This program encourages students to fully integrate scholarship, research, and clinical competencies in understanding individuals persons within a broader socio-cultural-spiritual context (mind, body, and spirit). Three key themes: health psychology, multiculturalism & social justice, and development across the lifespan are directly related to issues facing clinicians in the 21st century. To further tailor their program, students may integrate certificates and/or specializations from the School of Psychology and Interdisciplinary Inquiry.
Our students and alumni affect lives and systems through clinical practice and scholarship in diverse settings. They are instrumental leaders in working with those who are seeking to deepen the purpose and meaning of their lives; those who are incarcerated or on parole; those struggling with chronic illness and/or substance abuse; emergency first-responders, and returning veterans and their families.
Our accomplished clinical faculty members are active in both academia and professional practice, with specializations in health psychology and engaging patients in hospital settings, developmental psychology, child & adolescent psychology, multi-cultural psychology, and humanistic-integrative depth psychotherapies. Our faculty offer extensive experience as innovative providers in mental health care and are poised to support clinicians-in-training. We will help you navigate the world of professional development and licensing, while remaining true to a holistic approach to psychology.
