Hello, I have been accepted to Brooklyn College's and City College's masters programs in Mental Health Counseling and am wondering if anyone has information on which program is better. Brooklyn seems to offer more diverse training (CBT, psychodynamic, etc), while it seems that City focuses primarily on psychodynamic, but I could be wrong. Is that true, and if so, could that be problematic? Also, I've noticed that some programs require students to do unpaid work in their counseling centers before actual internship placements (they call these practicums, which seem to require doing intakes mostly). City doesn't do this; they only require the field placements. Is the lack of "practicum" experience detrimental, or is it mostly just a benefit to the schools (having unpaid workers helping out)? Thanks so much for any info!
