About School of Clinical Psychology
Preparing for Practice
Saybrook’s graduate programs in clinical psychology are specifically focused on the knowledge, experience, and practical skills you will need to directly enter the profession as a licensed psychologist or as a clinical counselor. The Clinical Psychology PhD program, the MA in Psychology with Specialization in Marriage & Family Therapy (MFT) and Professional Clinical Counseling (PCC), and the LIOS MA Psychology Counseling programs include core courses, hands-on training at conferences, and close mentoring from faculty who are active and experienced in the field.
The program is committed to a developmental approach to understanding individuals within their broader social and cultural context, and with a full appreciation of the inseparable nature of spirit, body and mind. At the doctoral level, this foundation includes the highest level of scholarship and research skills that are integral to a PhD degree.
From independent practice to nonprofit agencies, from social to private-sector groups, a clinical degree from Saybrook gives you a sought-after credential and places you within a tradition of excellence on the cutting edge.
Clinical psychology at Saybrook goes beyond the mechanics of the body and brain, to focus on a holistic view of the individual in their broader social context. Contemporary clinical research – in the form of analyses and meta-analyses of evidence-based studies in psychotherapy – continues to confirm that person-centered and interpersonal dimensions of psychotherapy are at the heart of therapeutic effectiveness. Our program embraces the idea that a person-to-person connection is key to therapy.
Recognized as one of the world’s leading centers for scholarship in humanistic psychology, Saybrook has a faculty who remain active in professional practice as well as academia. Faculty offer extensive experience as providers of mental health care important to help aspiring therapists navigate the world of professional development and licensing while remaining true to a holistic approach to psychology..
We offer MA and PhD degrees in clinical psychology and the MA in Psychology with Specialization in Marriage & Family Therapy and Professional Clinical Counseling. You may tailor the focus of your degree program by choosing additional electives, or by completing a certificate in a particular area of focus.
