M.A. in Rehabilitation Counseling
The Adler School’s M.A. in Counseling Psychology, Specialization in Rehabilitation Counseling program focuses on preparing students for the profession of rehabilitation counseling with special emphasis on providing services that enhance the independence and quality of life for persons with disabilities. Special emphasis is also placed on training students to become socially responsible practitioners who embrace diversity perspectives and who empower individuals with disabilities to build bridges across social, economic, cultural, racial, and political systems. The program will foster the development of social equality, justice, and respect for individuals with disabilities throughout the community.
The Adler School’s master of arts program in Counseling Psychology, Specialization in Rehabilitation Counseling has been named the first program in a professional school of psychology to receive accreditation by CORE – The Council on Rehabilitation Education. The Adler School specialization in rehabilitation counseling received CORE’s accreditation in part because it infuses courses with three elements that CORE considers integral to rehabilitation counselor education: ethical behavior, diversity or individual differences, and critical thinking. The program also exceeds CORE standards for internship and practicum experience by requiring students to complete 200 hours of Community Service Practicum—a curricular hallmark at the Adler School recognized as an “Innovative Practice in Graduate Education” by the American Psychology Association Board of Educational Affairs.
Adler School of Professional Psychology is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, 30 North LaSalle Street, Suite 2400 Chicago, IL 60602-2504, (800) 621-7440.
