The Department of Counseling and Higher Education provides programs designed to prepare professionals for leadership positions in community services, preschools, schools, colleges, universities and the public sector.
The Center for Animal Assisted Therapy trains professionals and volunteers to work with their pets to: (1) facilitate the development of students in kindergarten through 12th grade with pet-assisted educational programs, and (2) enhance the emotional well-being of persons of all ages through positive human-animal interactions. Workshops and courses are offered for national certification training for persons who wish to work with their pet to perform animal-assisted volunteer services or provide professional animal-assisted therapy.
The Center for Higher Education was created in the Department of Higher Education in 1983. The central purpose of CHE is to monitor and interpret the impact of major trends and legislation as they affect higher education. The office also engages in research activities for other agencies that are concerned about higher education issues at the state, regional and national levels.
The Center for Play Therapy exists to facilitate the unique development and emotional growth of children through the process of play therapy. The center carries out this commitment by providing graduate courses in play therapy, a play therapy summer institute, an annual play therapy conference, research, scholarships, a directory of play therapy training in the United States and Canada, a bibliography of play therapy literature, an international clearinghouse for play therapy literature, play therapy for children and training for parents.
The Counseling and Human Development Center (CHDC) and The Child and Family Resource Clinic (CFRC) are instructional facilities in which master’s and doctoral-level counselors-in-training provide counseling under faculty supervision. These clinics serve individuals of all ages, couples, families and groups. Fees are based on a sliding scale, making counseling affordable to a segment of the population that otherwise might not have access to mental health services.
