Counseling Psychology at HUFS is a scientist-practitioner program, viewing research and practice as interdependent and complementary.


In addition to the theoretical learning, we have the strength to apply the counseling theory practically in order to nurture a counseling psychologist to be competent in clinical settings. There are separate courses for Interpersonal theory, cognitive behavioral therapy, Object relations theory, and psychodynamic courses. This provides a high-quality educational experience that allows students to apply counseling theories in practice.

The program’s commitment to diversity aims to advance social equality, empower individuals to explore and appreciate their unique attributes and life experiences, challenge stereotypes, and prepare individuals to practice psychology in a diverse society. Our training program recognizes the inherent value and dignity of each person and actively promotes an awareness of, sensitivity to, and representation of diversity, including, but not limited to, differences of age, sex, gender identity, race, ethnicity, national and regional origin, sexual orientation, religion and spirituality, disabilities, and socioeconomic status. It is expected that students will engage in this self-exploration process as a critical aspect of their own professional development as multiculturally competent counseling psychologists.
