Clinical Mental Health and School Counseling (Dual Concentration)
The dual concentration in clinical mental health and school counseling is designed to train clinically competent counselors who are able to integrate Christian faith with the professional knowledge and skills necessary to address the growing mental health needs within clinical and/or school-based settings and to promote the social, emotional, academic and career development of clients and K–12 students. The dual concentration prepares students to meet requirements for both clinical licensure and school counseling endorsement in the state of Colorado. The program is accredited by Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) which provides recognition that the content and quality of the program has been evaluated and meets standards set by the clinical and school counseling professions. Students in this program also take part in our Personal Formation Program as they grow during their time at Denver Seminary.
The dual concentration is informed by the research and results of The School of Counseling Mental Health Initiative (SCHMI). The SCMHI is conducting school-based mental health research in collaboration with public, private and charter schools to address the emerging needs and trends in the field of school counseling.
