At John F. Kennedy University, you can prepare to become a marriage and family therapist – “one of the 50 best careers of 2010” according to U.S. News and World Report.
The JFK University Counseling Psychology/Holistic program offers the type of training you need and want to become an exceptional therapist:
- A rigorous academic curriculum that blends traditional training and practices with innovative theories and approaches;
- Intimate classroom learning experiences with dedicated, regionally acclaimed, and nationally known faculty, many of whom are currently practicing in the field;
- A wide array of specializations from which to choose; and
- Part- and full-time options with convenient class times.
The Counseling Psychology/Holistic degree program encourages students to pursue personal exploration through their own psychotherapy experience to promote individual personal, as well as academic growth.
JFK University also provides one of the largest clinical training programs in Northern California. We have three community counseling centers in the greater San Francisco Bay Area – Oakland, Pleasant Hill, and Sunnyvale – a distinctive feature of our programs that insures continuity of curriculum and a high quality of supervision for our students while providing them the opportunity to hone their skills and provide service to the community.
The Counseling Psychology/Holistic program is offered at the Pleasant Hill, Berkeley or San Jose campus in the Bay Area, depending on area of specialization.
