PsyD is currently accepting applications for Fall 2019!

We are so glad to see that you are interested in our Doctor of Counseling Psychology (PsyD) program.

The PsyD program at Holy Family University has a social justice and multicultural focus, with a scientist practitioner-training model. It is wholeheartedly committed to training experience that espouses evidence-based practice and state-of- the-art interventions. Additionally, it is designed upon the foundational values of the discipline of Counseling Psychology, including a developmental, strength-based, and mind-body approach to treatment and wellness.

In particular, the Holy Family University PsyD training program will be guided by the APA accreditation standards and will prepare graduates to become license-eligible psychologists in the State of Pennsylvania. A unique feature of this program will be the opportunity for students to complete training to teach in higher education. These teaching for Higher Education courses will focus both on face-to-face and on-line offerings.
