The Department of Counseling Psychology and Human Services is one of four academic departments in the College of Education. It is comprised of four major programs: Counseling Psychology (CPSY), Couples and Family Therapy (CFT), Family and Human Services (FHS) and Prevention Science (PREV). The department offers degrees from undergraduate to master’s and doctoral. Programs in Counseling Psychology and Human Services educate and train professionals in counseling psychology, couples and family therapy, and family and human services. Our students are trained to effectively and collaboratively identify, treat, and prevent mental health and behavioral problems in children, adolescents, adults, and families. Through education and training, students gain the skills to interpret and apply scientific information from the behavioral sciences in general, and from their discipline in particular, to professional practice. Students learn how to conduct research and contribute to the knowledge base of their disciplines. At the doctoral level, students engage in producing scientific knowledge through research in collaboration with their faculty mentors. Field placements, practicum placements, and internships at all levels of training provide our students with opportunities to practice in school, community agency, clinical, and research settings under the supervision of faculty, agency personnel, and collaborating scholars.
This position will provide instruction and academic support to undergraduate and graduate-level students in the College of Education, primarily in the Counseling Psychology and Human Services (CPHS) department, with an emphasis on teaching in the Family and Human Services undergraduate major and graduate courses as needed. Course content areas may include human development, prevention science, research methods, human services, public health, couples and family therapy, and applied psychology and other core CPHS related courses. Other duties may include supervising students in field experiences or clinical settings, advising students; mentoring graduate student’s applied research projects; departmental, college, and university service; collaborative curriculum and academic program leadership; and engaging in key state and national professional societies related to the field to further the mission of the program. All faculty are expected to contribute to the equity and inclusion goals of the college and to incorporate the best inclusive practices indicated in their field of expertise.
