Looking to the Future--The Role of Master's Programs in Counseling Psychology: A Response to Quality of Master's Education: A Concern for Counseling Psychology?
Horne, Arthur M.
Counseling Psychologist, v41 n5 p710-716 Jul 2013
The predoctoral relationship that counseling psychology programs have had with master's programs over the decades is being challenged in current times. A model that is developing is one that provides greater responsibility for program definition and then full faculty engagement from doctoral program faculty. With change occurring in training models, economics, and political events, strategic planning and relevant mission development is essential for the viability of counseling psychology doctoral programs.
