Training prepares the next generation of counseling professionals

We are one of the largest non-degree granting mental health training programs in the state of Nevada and have been training masters, doctoral and postdoctoral students for decades in both social work and psychology. From 2010-2020, our training program graduated 89 future mental health professionals, many of whom are practicing in the State of Nevada. Our practicum program was awarded the Social Work Practicum Site of the year in 2017-2018 by the University's Social Work program. The University's Counseling Services doctoral psychology internship was granted accreditation by the American Psychological Association (APA) in 2021 for the full 10 years.
