The Human Services Assistant technical diploma is ideal if you’re looking to assist and provide client services in a wide variety of fields such as psychology, rehabilitation or social work, including support families. This technical diploma will provide you with strong skills in interviewing, communicating, building rapport for trusting relationships and counseling techniques for professions where this is key. Upon graduation, you’ll be able to assist clients in identifying and obtaining available benefits and social and community services. You’ll also be able to assist social workers with developing, organizing and conducting programs to prevent and resolve problems relevant to substance abuse, human relationships, rehabilitation or dependent care. As an embedded technical diploma, this program ladders fully into the Human Services associate degree program. Note: the Human Services Assistant program does not lead directly to State licensure to practice counseling.
