University of Colorado at Denver  

Our couple and family track focuses on training counselors to help couples and families work through a wide range of relationship issues. We provide students with a better understanding of the socio-historical contexts of counseling, including gender, race/ethnicity, class and sexual orientation. Our program aims to educate competent counselors who value inclusion and prize diversity. We’re looking for students who want to embody integrity and culturally-sensitive ethics in the professional practice and who are committed to life-long learning, self-care and professional development. The practicum experience in this program can’t be matched by any other counseling program in the state. That’s because UC Denver students get real-world counseling experience in our University Counseling Center, with live supervision and constant feedback from licensed clinicians.
