UJ Announces Master of Science in Counseling Program

University of Jamestown has announced the Master of Science in Clinical Counseling program, to begin in the fall of 2016.

The program will be headed by Dr. Jennifer Lipetzky, a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in North Dakota.

“We are excited to roll out the Clinical Counseling program.” said Dr. Lipetzky, “We have received a lot of feedback regarding the community’s need for an increase in mental health treatment options.”

“Jamestown is a great place to train because of the nearby State Hospital and South Central Human Service Center that will offer both practicum and internship opportunities.”

Dr. Dana Wallace will be assisting with the program. “Currently, there is a great need for mental health services throughout the United States.” said Dr. Wallace, “I am eager to be part of a program that will be training counselors to meet that need.”

The Clinical Counseling program prepares students to work in mental health settings such as: hospitals, substance abuse centers, mental health centers, university counseling centers, residential treatment centers, and private practice.

The program will educate students in principles and practices of diagnosis, treatment, referral, and prevention. The students will develop skills in diagnosis and assessment, evidence-based counseling/psychotherapy techniques, group processes, cultural diversity, development, crisis management, marriage and family counseling, addiction and career counseling.

Dr. Lipetzky added, “This program will benefit the Jamestown community, as well as other communities across the state.”
