Milligan to host prospective counseling students on May 20

MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (May 7, 2019) — Students interested in Milligan College’s Master of Science in Counseling (MSC) program can be a “Student for a Night” and sit in on a “Counseling for Grief and Loss” class on Monday, May 20, from 5:30-7 p.m. Participants will meet in the college’s Taylor-Phillips House, located on Alf Taylor Road.

Prospective students also have the opportunity to connect with current students and tour the counseling center. Dr. Shauna Nefos Webb, associate professor of counseling, will teach the evening’s class.

“Learning about grief is essential for counselors,” said Nefos Webb. “Grief is at the root of many of the challenges our clients face.”

Nefos Webb earned her Ph.D. from the University of Georgia and is a nationally certified counselor. She is passionate about diversity competence and social justice advocacy, qualitative research methodology, and the use of creative arts in counseling practice.

“Our ‘Student for a Night’ events are the perfect opportunities for anyone to experience first-hand what it’s like to be a graduate student at Milligan,” said Stacy Shankle, admissions recruiter for healthcare programs. “Students will be able to interact with and experience the quality of a Milligan professor while also meeting other current students in the program.”

Milligan recently announced the expansion of its graduate counseling program to include a concentration in addictions counseling beginning fall 2019, thanks to support from Ballad Health and the BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Health Foundation.

The MSC program also offers concentrations in clinical mental health counseling and school counseling. In addition, a certificate of graduate study in counseling ministry is available, which introduces students to basic knowledge about both secular and Christian perspectives on counseling and how these may be applied in a church-based setting.
