The Institute for Clinical Social Work Focuses on Psychodynamic Graduate Studies

Fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), we offer a PhD in Clinical Social Work and a Master’s in Clinical Counseling & Psychotherapy. Our clinically based programs offer a contemporary psychodynamic perspective, meaning equal attention is placed on conscious and unconscious motivations that create barriers to living a richer fuller life. This allows the psychotherapist to assist clients in exploring underlying issues that may be causing difficulties in their lives and not just focusing on symptom reduction.

PhD program (3-years) is offered On-Site and through Distance Learning.

Master’s program (2-years) is offered On-Site and prepares students for LPC licensure. 100% of MA graduates, who have taken the LPC exam, have passed.

ICSW graduates are thriving in a broad range of practice settings: social service agencies, academic environments, administration, and private practice.
