Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor Responsibilities
While licensed professional clinical counselors can specialize in several different settings, their job function and responsibilities remain the same. The main responsibility they have inside the school setting is to help children cope and resolve any psychological issues they may have. This can encompass family, emotional, and even substance-abuse issues. Counselors may have to work with parents and other school professionals, keeping them up to date with the student’s progress.
Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor Requirements
Similar to working as a school counselor, all licensed professional clinical counselors jobs require at a minimum a master’s degree. Before you find a master’s program, you must receive a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology or another related field. Once complete, the requirements to begin working depends on which state you intend on practicing in. Most states require you to complete a licensing exam that certifies you with the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC). Lastly, double check with your state laws to see if there are any continuing education requirements.
