Help Children and Teens Navigate Times Filled with Heartache
Childhood and the teenage years are often fraught with drama and, for many, heartache. Especially during difficult times, for example when divorce or other strife enters the lives of children and teens, it takes a sensitive professional to help them and their families weather these storms. The child and adolescent therapy specialization prepares you to respond to the needs of children and adolescents through work in therapeutic settings using a family systems approach.

“All of the [professors] were really interested in me. They weren’t just about the papers, and the assignments. They knew I was a person even though I was on the other side of a screen. And it was so fun and interesting because I could bounce ideas off of my professors and my academic advisors.” -K’Hala Hamilton, Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy (2016)
