The information contained in this Handbook is designed to guide students through the educational and clinical training experience requirements necessary for completing the master’s degree in psychology with a specialization in counseling, and for obtaining eligibility for a license as a Mental Health Counselor as outlined in Florida Statute 491. The degree requirements for the Counseling Psychology Master’s program are designed to be consistent with the state licensure requirements, however, the Board of Clinical Social Work, Marriage & Family Therapy and Mental health Counseling meets several times annually and may change the rules outlined in Chapter 491 at any meeting. It is recommended that all students obtain a copy of the Florida Statutes (Laws and Rules) governing the profession. Students should stay current with changes and new information by maintaining contact with the Florida Board.
