Requirements

Erin Wilbur

Clinical Counseling Psychology Psychology BA ‘19, Clinical Counseling Psychology MA ‘22
Residential Counselor, Open Sky Community Services

Assumption’s CBT-based training helped me to feel prepared and well-informed to enter the field.

The Clinical Counseling Psychology graduate program was highly recommended and offered a lot of benefits that interested me, like the Aaron T. Beck Institute and research fellowships that provided the chance to work with faculty on their projects.

Assumption’s professors will help you discover "what you want to be when you grow up."

The professors prepare you to be an informed and well-prepared member of the mental health field. They have helped me to find my own therapeutic style and grow as a Clinician. I'm so grateful for all that I have learned here. Assumption truly does light the way.

Clinical Counseling Psychology 2018
Clinician at The Bridge of Central Massachusetts

The graduate fellowship experience has been a highlight of my time at Assumption.

The fellowship allows one to experience aspects of psychological research, development, proposal, and implementation that cannot be found elsewhere. It provides students with an avenue to explore pathways of professional development previously never considered.
Katherine Schmidt

Clinical Counseling Psychology 2017
Special Education Instructional Assistant at Central Massachusetts Collaborative

I completed my Graduate Fellowship with Dr. Paula Fitzpatrick working on three different projects.

Each of these projects has allowed me to practice different skills associated with the field, including everything from data collection and entry to writing a paper and presenting it to colleagues across the country.

Clinical Counseling Psychology 2018
Program Therapist, Butler Hospital

I love the work that I do, and I wouldn't trade my experience at Assumption for anything.

Dr. Leonard Doerfler influenced my therapeutic style. He taught me not only how to implement the CBT interventions I use daily, but how to explain them to patients in a way that helps them to understand the reasoning behind these interventions.
Lindsey Millerick

Clinical Counseling Psychology 2018
Program Therapist, Butler Hospital, Rhode Island

Assumption gave me the tools and support necessary to be successful in my field of study.

The program's emphasis on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy familiarized me with the theory that has been adopted by the partial hospital program I currently work in. My familiarity with CBT principles has allowed me to teach these concepts and skills to patients effectively.

I participated in research with Dr. Volungis where we studied the effects of smartphone addiction.

This article has recently been published and serves as an example of the high quality of work that occurs during the fellowship process. I was able to present our research in three separate states as well as publish our findings on smartphone addiction.
