¡Enlaces! Certificate in Counseling the Spanish-Speaking Client

¡Enlaces! is a certificate program that is embedded into the Marriage & Family Therapy (MFT) specialization. Interested applicants should be fluent in Spanish and be able to take courses taught in Spanish to be eligible to enroll in ¡Enlaces! Courses designated as ¡Enlaces! are taught in Spanish as an opportunity for students to apply and practice professional psychological terminology and learn about specific cultural factors involved in counseling Spanish-speaking clients. Coursework familiarizes the student with the diversity of cultures in the Spanish-speaking community, the unique issues that these cultures bring to the Spanish-language psychological literature, and includes a clinical placement working with the Spanish-speaking client.

Interested applicants are interviewed and admitted to ¡Enlaces! during the admission process to the MFT program. This includes an interview with the ¡Enlaces! Program Coordinator to get approval for this emphasis.

The ¡Enlaces!  emphasis is offered in daytime and evening formats.
