Master of Science in Clinical Rehabilitation & Mental Health Counseling receives CACREP accreditation

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

The Council on Rehabilitation Education (CORE) has granted the MSU Billings Master of Science in Clinical Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling program full accreditation for a term of eight years. 

Effective July 1, 2017, CACREP (Counsel for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Education Programs) assumed responsibility for continuing the mission and vision of CORE through its accreditation process. 

Because of the recognition by CORE as a fully accredited program, the MSU Billings CRMHC program has been accepted as a CACREP accredited program for the term of eight years.

Dr. Duin states “this is the result of very hard work by Dr. Blackwell, Dr. Dell, Karen Mikelson and the REHA Grad Assistant, Patti Mazukiewicz.  Their work over many months has been duly recognized by CORE (now CACREP).”

Accredited programs provide the following to students:

  • recognition that the program has been evaluated and meets or exceeds the highest academic standards
  • knowledge that the graduate has met prerequisites for credentialing and is ready for entry into professional practice
  • understanding that the focus of the program will be on professional counseling.

    Doctor Scott Bea says a fear of clowns is most likely due to the elusive nature of their appearance. Because clowns wear makeup and conceal their identity -- they can create uncertainty. He says it's similar to when children are terrified by mascots or characters with masks. Clowns used to be whimsical characters folks associated with the circus -- but over time -- depictions of clowns in movies and on television have associated them with more sinister things.
