There is a real need for professionals with special knowledge in child and adolescent development

"There is a real need for professionals with special knowledge in child and adolescent development," said Dean Ginther, PhD, faculty chair in Capella's Harold Abel School of Psychology. "According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the individual and family services industry is expected to grow by 73 percent, making it one of the country's fastest growing industries.

Our curriculum is designed to provide the knowledge, theory, and best practices necessary to support the development of children and adolescents, as well as advance our students' potential to become leaders in this important field of study."
