About the Department

The Department of Counseling, Rehabilitation Counseling, and Counseling Psychology (CRCCP), within the West Virginia University College of Education and Human Services, prepares professionals to work with a variety of clients in a variety of settings.  Our Counseling program offers two tracks – clinical mental health and school counseling. Our Clinical Rehabilitation & Mental Health Counseling program pioneered the use of distance technology to deliver a quality education. Our Counseling Psychology program is developing an emphasis in military psychology. Every program is nationally accredited: CACREP for the Counseling programs, CORE for the Clinical Rehabilitation & Mental Health Counseling program (to be CACREP in July 2017), and APA for the Counseling Psychology program.

The faculty of this department is characterized by three over-arching qualities: Their dedication to our students, outstanding teaching, and national reputations in their fields. We pride ourselves in the “above and beyond” dedication to the learning and mentoring of students. Faculty lead students in other professional development activities, such as attending and presenting at conferences together, conducting community service, and engaging in scholarly activities. Such engagement between the faculty and the students enhances the national recognition of the programs within the department.
