    The Master of Health Sciences in Clinical Rehabilitation and Counseling (MHS-RC) program is fully accredited by the Council on Rehabilitation Education (CORE) and the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) and is a 60 credit hour graduate program with a strong counseling focus. The program prepares counselors to assume the full range of professional responsibilities required in community rehabilitation agencies and counseling organizations, private as well as publicly funded and non-profit, and to contribute to scholarship and service locally and nationally.

    The well-trained rehabilitation counselor is able to assist others in a professional and effective manner – assisting persons with disabilities to attain independence, income and a satisfying life. A career in counseling is extremely flexible, allowing graduates to select employment that best suits their personality, skills, and interests. Counselors find work in a variety of work settings including: mental health facilities, group homes, vocational training centers, private health care agencies, acute care and rehabilitation hospitals, substance abuse facilities, state and federal rehabilitation agencies and school settings. Counselors engage in individual counseling, group counseling and family counseling, evaluation/assessment, advocacy, and case management with people with disabilities. Counselors work with individuals with physical, emotional disabilities, developmental, cognitive and/or other life situations to achieve their academic, personal, career, social and independent-living goals in the most integrated settings possible.

    The MHS-CRC training model integrates behavioral science theory and knowledge with counseling skills. Our philosophy is that the most effective counselors have a strong understanding of the theoretical and scientific bases of the professional concepts and techniques they apply. Counseling is a process intended to facilitate the vocational and personal development of people with disabilities. The disability may be physical, emotional, mental, developmental or social. Within the counseling process, services are utilized to enable individuals with disabilities to make the fullest use of their potential in choosing, planning for, and attaining a satisfying and effective life. In a very real sense, counselors are concerned with maximizing the abilities of people with disabilities, while assisting them to cope constructively with their disabilities.

    Counseling is unique in integrating a diverse range of treatment approaches and utilizing community resources to meet an individual’s life needs. The process of counseling can include therapeutic counseling, intervention, prevention, psychological and vocational evaluation, vocational exploration and training, job development and placement, case management and follow-up. In addition to the skills of counseling and knowledge of human behavior common to the human services professions, counselors develop additional expertise in the process of rehabilitation, and knowledge of the medical, psychosocial and vocational aspects of disability.​            504-556-3453

    ITI believes that a technical career often provides better salary, working conditions, and self-image, which consequently result in a better life. With this belief, we exist to help men and women attain that better life. ITI employees know that they are making an impact on the quality of life in this community and our state. Our goal is to help each student succeed in fulfilling his or her dream of a better life not only for themselves but also for their family.
