Doctorate in Counseling Psychology (Psy.D)

The doctoral curriculum is a continuum of the master's in counseling psychology program at the Universidad del Turabo. As such, it provides those competencies not covered and further enhances in complexity those acquired at the master's level. One of the main changes to the doctoral curriculum is a change from doctoral dissertation to doctoral project. Doctoral dissertations are mostly geared to PhD programs where the emphasis of the curriculum is on scientific research in professional psychology. Psy.D programs are focused on developing skills for professional practice in clinical settings. However, since it is of utmost importance that practitioners have the skills to integrate scientific knowledge to their practice, specifically in pursue of evidence-based treatment interventions, students must demonstrate such competency by way of producing a doctoral project in which such competencies are shown to be mastered.
