Department of Counselor Education and Counseling Psychology

The foundation of global society is the family. Today, families often fall victim to the struggles of ordinary life in today's busy world. Counselors are often called upon to help families navigate the hazards that have so often proven problematic.

The marriage, couple and family counseling program at WMU offers students practical knowledge for dealing with these issues and more. The program, offered in collaboration with the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences, emphasizes an understanding of the issues faced by contemporary couples and families.

In addition to the core counseling courses, this 60-hour program emphasizes a family systems approach to the conceptualization and treatment of couples and families.
