AUSB offering new online Career Theory and Practice course for LPCC licensure this January

Career Theory and Practice
This course will provide both the theoretical foundation and the practical experience necessary to understand and foster the career/lifestyle development for clients both individually and in groups. Students will be prepared with the necessary knowledge and skills to collect, evaluate, and use occupational and life development data in helping individual clients and various client populations to make effective decisions and take appropriate actions in their career/life development.

Class Schedule and Outline
This is an on-line 4.5 unit course offering 45 hours of contact time at Antioch University Santa Barbara. The course begins January 26, 2012 and ends March 26, 2012. Students will have weekly on-line assignments and activities that they may complete in a manner that fits their schedule. Each week will require 6 hours of contact time, except for the first and last week which will require 8 hours of contact time, including a learning conversation with the instructor. Syllabus, resources, as well as a guide to on-line discussions and assignments will be posted on Sakiii.

This course aimed at helping licensed graduates seeking grandparenting for LPCC will fill up quickly and registration is limited. The tuition for Antioch University alumni is $340 per unit (4.5 units $1,530) or for other professions, $603 per unit ($2,713.50)

Last year the California legislature authorized a new counseling license at the Master’s level. The Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) was added as a Master’s level license to make California the 50th state to provide this license.  Recently the BBS (Board of Behavioral Sciences) decided to offer licensed MFT and LCSW professionals a short window of opportunity to apply for grandparenting for LPCC licensure. 

The application process requires submitting information about academic coursework completed, which is then reviewed by the BBS for eligibility. Many of our alumni will find that as graduates of our MACP program, you have already completed most of the requirements, but will likely be asked to take a 4.5 unit Career Counseling course. Other current licensed MFT’s that completed their degree at another institution may also be eligible.

If you have not already taken this course within our program or another academic setting you will be delighted to know that we will be offering the course:  Career Theory and Practice this Winter beginning January 26, 2012. While decisions regarding eligibility are determined solely by the BBS, this course has been designed by Antioch University in accordance with criteria specified by the BBS as part of the LPCC licensure process.
