Doctoral Program in Counseling Psychology

University of Central Arkansas
Campus Full time September 2017 USA Conway

The doctoral program in Counseling Psychology at the University of Central Arkansas provides graduate education in the scientific practice of psychology and in counseling psychology as a professional specialization. The program of study is grounded in the scientist‑practitioner model for training psychologists that stresses training in both research methods and professional practice. This model affirms the idea that practice and research should reciprocally influence and strengthen one another and are thus complementary components of graduate psychology education. The role of scientist-practitioner is to be (1) a consumer and practitioner of evidence-based clinical practices, (2) an evaluator of professional actions and, (3) a researcher who produces new data and who reports these findings to the professional community. The scientist-practitioner model was developed at the Boulder Conference on clinical psychology in 1949 and subsequently accepted in 1954 by the Society of Counseling Psychology (Division 17) of the American Psychological Association (APA). [+]

Doctor of Psychoanalysis Degree (Clinical Psychoanalysis) BGSP is unique among both psychoanalytic training institutes and graduate schools in offering regionally accredited degrees in psychoanalysis, culminating in the Doctor of Psychoanalysis degree (Psya.D.). This program combines full training to become a psychoanalyst with academic and research studies leading to the doctorate. Psychoanalysts who have already been certified but would like to pursue the doctorate may apply for the Accelerated Psya.D. Program. The Psya.D. program takes the psychoanalyst-in-training beyond the process of understanding how people develop their emotional and mental lives, into the realm of entering and intervening in the unconscious life of clients. The student explores the full range of character structures and psychopathology, integrating academic study with casework to understand patients’ repetitions, defenses, resistances, and symbolic communications. In clinical supervision, students learn to use the transference and countertransference responses to work constructively as analysts. Psychoanalytic research studies foster the student’s discipline to examine clinical data systematically, strengthening the process of making valid inferences from observations. Such work requires an investment not only of time and resources, but also of oneself. The journey for the analyst-in-training entails both the courage and commitment to develop a high level of emotional attunement, attainable only through the combination of seminars, self-examination in the training analysis, and intensive clinical supervision (all hallmarks of BGSP’s integrative approach to learning). Student Outcomes Graduates of the Psya.D. program are prepared to practice as psychoanalysts with a wide range of clients, as well as to teach, conduct psychoanalytic research,... [-]
