why not consider gaining an expertise in healthy aging while pursuing your master’s in clinical psychology?
This specialization is offered to you within the MACP program at no extra cost or residency commitment so that you graduate with all of your peers in MACP. With this training you will have the substantial advantage of being identified as an expert in the field of Healthy Aging, serving the fastest growing population in our country. Our nation needs qualified trained professionals with this specialization and the rapidly expanding job market will be looking for someone like you! For more information on the Concentration in Healthy Aging. click here.
why pursue a concentration in healthy aging?
Older adults are the fastest growing population nationwide (even more so in California) and the needs of this population are already far outpacing the services available. This means that Master’s in Clinical Psychology (MACP) students with a Concentration in Healthy Aging graduate with an expertise that is highly desirable to prospective employers. Health care itself is one of the fastest growing job fields in the U.S., and psychological services for older adults and their families is at the forefront of this growth. With an expertise in Healthy Aging, your desirability in the workforce is incontestable.
Concentration in Healthy Aging Class of 2014
Furthermore, our culture has increasingly shifted the definition of older adults to begin at age 50. In light of these statistics, one would be hard pressed to think of a single family that does not have an adult who might benefit from psychological support in the second half of life!
Highlights from your Director of Clinical Training Albert “Al” Munoz Flores, PsyD As the Director of Clinical Training, I am charged by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS) to assure that our graduate students are complying with the BBS regulations that apply to a Trainee (an enrolled graduate student providing psychotherapy in a clinical training site). I hope that you will feel free to call/ come by my office and discuss
your clinical interests with me, and explore the clinical training opportunities that are available to you in the Santa Barbara area. I look forward to meeting with you in the future! Dr. Albert Munoz-Flores can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

noteworthy student news healthy aging concentration
Students accepted for the Concentration in Healthy Aging enroll in all of the same foundational course-work offered within the MACP program preparing graduates for MFT licensure. The training approach of Healthy Aging at Antioch represents a unique model in that it draws substantially from positive approaches that support individual and family strengths. The program trains future practitioners in the assessment of elders within the context of their environment (family, social, economic and community supports) and emphasizes preventative approaches that are distinct from medical models focusing on crisis response, and pathology. The instruction integrates appropriate psychological theories with holistic models that considers the mind, body, and spirit. For more information on the Healthy Aging Program, CLICK HERE.
We are very proud of our first cohort of Healthy Aging Graduates (Class of 2013)
what our students say about macp Marcia Brandwynne: 2nd Year Healthy Aging Student
“When I decided that I wanted to retire from a long and successful career in television news and enter another field, I began to research schools that would be appropriate for me as a mature learner. Antioch was recommended to me for its exceptional Masters program in Psychology. The adult learning model has been a boon for me. The school regards my life and work experience as a resource. To be honest, it is daunting for anyone to think of entering a new career in later life. You just need a little help from your friends. Antioch’s fine faculty and administration continues to give me the confidence and support that I need to jumpstart this exciting new phase of my life.”
Geraldo Miramontes: 1st Year Latino Mental Health Student
“Antioch has given me the opportunity to see my uniqueness as Latino, and to accept and respect students different than me. But mainly I have learned to see my humanity as the rest; a person who experiences fear, failures, joy, love and who is in need of relationships.”
Jessica Soon: 2nd Year Healthy Aging Student
latino mental health concentration 2013 Stipends Awarded to MACP Students
Coming from a large state college, the intimacy of classes at Antioch has provided me with a gratifyingly unforgettable experience. I am currently part of a wonderful cohort in the MACP program where diversity among students is highly appreciated. I am South Korean, adopted, my father is Chinese and my mother is Japanese and in this respect, I feel that I come from the best of 3 worlds. Being able to draw on my own cultural knowledge while learning from my peers has been an integral part of my learning experience.
This year, four MACP students in the Latino Mental Health Concentration received the California MFT Con-sortium State Stipend. The stipend of $18,500 is awarded to qualifying students with past work experience and future commitment to working in community mental health settings serving underserved populations.
