Interested in entering the challenging yet rewarding field of mental health? Cameron University’s CU Be a Therapist, a virtual information session, will present information on how a Master of Science in Behavioral Science degree can lead to licensure as a Licensed Marital and Family Therapist (LMFT) or a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) on Tuesday, April 12 from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

Presented by the Cameron University School of Graduate and Professional Studies and the Department of Psychology, “CU Be A Therapist” will feature Dr. Joanni Sailor, LMFT, Professor of Psychology and director of the Cameron Psychology Clinic, and Paul James, Instructor, Department of Psychology, in addition to a current student and alumni from CU’s psychology graduate programs. Attendees will learn about two of the tracks offered under CU’s Master of Science in Behavioral Sciences: Counseling and Marriage and Family Therapy.
“Working as an LPC or LMFT is a very rewarding career,” says Sailor. “We take great pride in preparing our graduates for the licensure process, so they can enter a profession in which they provide vital services to individuals and/or families in need.”
Licensed Professional Counselors (LPCs) focus on mental, emotional and behavioral issues in a variety of health care settings. They work with individuals, groups, and couples in roles as wide-ranging as substance abuse counseling, psychoanalysis, learning disability counseling and more.
Licensed Marital and Family Therapists (LMFTs) are mental health professionals trained in psychotherapy and family systems. They are licensed to diagnose and treat mental and emotional disorders within the context of marriage, couples and family systems. Marriage and family therapy is brief, solution-focused, specific with attainable therapeutic goals, and designed with the "end in mind."
