MDiv Counselling – Clinical Track Recognized by CRPO
Tyndale Seminary is pleased to announce the Master of Divinity (MDiv) Counselling – Clinical Track has been officially recognized by the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). This recognition means Tyndale’s clinical program supports the development of entry-to-practice competencies and academic requirements for new psychotherapists.
This is great news for Tyndale students wishing to pursue CRPO membership post-graduation, as their application process will be drastically streamlined. Proving they have met the academic requirements for membership will now be as simple as checking a box that states they have graduated from a recognized school. As of recently, CRPO registration is required to practice psychotherapy in Ontario.
Dr. Paul Scuse, Assistant Professor of Counselling at Tyndale Seminary, worked with the CRPO review panel during the process.
“In this day in age when religious schools that are training for secular professions are sometimes suspect, the CRPO review panel praised Tyndale’s program for fostering an academic environment where students are encouraged to be aware of their own spirituality and to be aware of how their own faith impacts their work as a therapist,” he says. ”Students are supported in their integration of psychology and Christian theology.”
