The mission of our APA-Accredited Counseling Psychology (CPSY) Doctoral Program at Purdue University is to train scientist-practitioners who are prepared to integrate theory, research, and practice in their work as agents of knowledge development and change in a diverse society. Our dynamic program has selective admissions; small, full-time cohorts; and exciting service-learning and campus partnerships focused on diversity, grief, and college student access and success.
Our specific training goals include:
a) to train scientist-practitioners in inquiry skills for use in advancing knowledge of psychology,
b) to train scientist-practitioners in inquiry skills for use in psychological conceptualization, diagnosis, intervention, and other counseling professional services-to clients and consumers resulting from a sound theoretical and research knowledge base,
c) to develop scientist-practitioners who demonstrate ethical and professional behavior consistent with the standards of counseling psychology, and
d) to prepare scientist-practitioners who can provide competent services that are responsive to individual and cultural differences in a multicultural environment.
The Counseling Psychology Doctoral Program is accredited by the American Psychological Association (7 years in 2007) and will be reviewed again in the 2013-2014 cycle.
