At The Institute for Clinical Social Work, we train graduate students to become clinicians/psychotherapists that work in a variety of mental health settings.
ICSW’s Master’s program in Clinical Counseling and Psychotherapy is a full or part-time course of study designed to prepare students for careers in the mental health field with a specific emphasis on the integration of modern psychodynamic perspectives. After students complete the degree, they are eligible to apply for Illinois state licensure (LPC).
Upon graduation, students are prepared to seek employment in a variety of settings, including:
- community mental health agencies
- the court system
- child welfare
- medical settings
- agencies serving marginalized populations
- substance abuse treatment settings
- family services agencies
- private mental health and group practice
