  • Descriptions
    The PsyD-CoP programme at HKSYU is the first Doctoral degree in Counselling Psychology in Asia. The programme intends to produce psychologists who possess the necessary core competencies of their chosen profession, and who can qualify for admission into and/or registration with major professional groups. Should the graduates decide to practice abroad, the programme should enable them to pursue membership of the American Counselling Association, Australian Counselling Association, British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, and the American Psychological Association.

    The programme adopts a three-dimensional scientist-practitioner approach to training students, employing the perspective of scientific enquiry, and basing their practice on the science of psychology. (Knowledge Dimension, Research Dimension and Practice Dimension)

    The PsyD-CoP is a small and intensive programme, and each student is expected to compose his/her own programme of study to meet his/own learning needs under the guidance of a designated mentor. The student is expected to choose a specific area in Counselling Psychology (e.g. working with students with special education needs, vocational counselling for the mentally challenged, psychotherapy for mood disorders, parenting and adjustment issues in childhood, etc.), and to develop significant expertise by focusing all three dimensions of his/her learning in this chosen area.

    The primary goal of the programme is to produce competent practitioners and researchers who can assume leadership positions within the professional community.
