The Counselor Education program at UNCG adheres to the scientist problem-solver model of training. Consistent with this approach is the program’s goal of graduating students who have knowledge of basic counseling, possess a high level of competency in providing professional services, and have the skills necessary to conduct research. The tenets underlying the program include (a) exposure to a variety of theoretical orientations for counseling, (b) reliance on both the clinical-counseling and vocational-education approaches in designing counseling and programmatic interventions, (c) a commitment to developing the student’s skills as a researcher, and (d) an emphasis on developing the normal developmental issues of the individual as opposed to an approach based on pathology.
