Graduate Certificate in Child and Family Therapy

Many families today have a family member—child or adult—with mental health needs. Studies estimate that about 20 percent of children today have some type of mental health need. Arcadia’s specialty in the area of Child and Family Therapy recognizes the simultaneous mental health needs of parents, families and children, and the impact of child on family or family on child.

If you are a licensed professional counselor, a doctoral level psychologist, or have a master’s degree in a clinical field such as counseling or social work, this certificate program is designed to meet your continuing education needs.
