SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hello all! I am in a split pathway for my graduate school/career path. My ultimate goal (for now) is to become a counselor/therapist. I know that MSW (LCSW) and LCP both lead to what I want, but they both have different perspectives/approaches in therapy. I am very interested in psychology and that is one of the biggest compelling reason for me to go for Masters in Counseling psychology, since MSW seems to have less emphasis on psychology and/or less coursework on psychology. However, I am quite a bit interested in the social aspects and what social workers do outside of therapy. I was wondering if trying to get both masters in social work (clinical emphasis) and counseling psychology would be a good idea, or would it be a redundant task?
