I am currently enrolled in a community counseling program and will graduate sometime in 2009 with a MA in Counseling. I have developed a keen interest in rehabilitative counseling and have tried to look up information about what it would take to get a job in this field, but there is so much information I find it overwhelming. My questions are as follows:
1. Do I have to have a degree in Rehabilitative counseling to get a job in that field or will an MA in Counseling be sufficient?
2. If a MA in counseling is sufficient, what steps would I have to take to become CRC certified?
3. Are there any programs that offer a certificate program to those individuals that have a MA in counseling and want to obtain add'l education to get CRC certified?
I have started my internship yet so I am thinking that would be an opportunity to look for something specific to rehabilitative counseling. Any suggestions for places I could target?
Any information would be helpful, especially if it particularly targets the state of Michigan. Thanks in advance to those who respond!
