Specialization in Behavioral Services for Children and Their Families

There is a national trend to provide cost effective services for children with behavior problems and/or developmental disabilities. Part of this trend includes the direct delivery of services by individuals with a bachelor’s degree. Each state has begun to delineate the necessary training and experience required of the bachelor level individual. While the degree requirements for the Psychology major provide a broad overview of the science of psychology, the graduate who wishes to obtain an entry level position working with children and their families requires more knowledge and experience. The specialization curriculum emphasizes learning theory, the application of behavioral principles, knowledge of the types of problems and issues that for which children may need services, learning how to interview and interact with children and their families, and supervised experience working with children and their families in the community.
