The purpose of the Associate of Arts degree in Counseling with a concentration in Crisis Management & Suicide Prevention. The program is designed to prepare students for entry level jobs as Behavioral Health Technicians with the Navajo Nation Department of Behavioral Health Services, and student may continue to obtain a baccalaureate degree in Counseling or Psychology. This program came about because of a request made by Rehoboth McKinley Christian Hospital and the Navajo Nation Department of Behavioral Services to NTU. Problems such as death by exposure due to alcoholism, teenage suicide clusters, and substance abuse seemed to be growing in the Navajo Nation and border communities. The feeling was that more Navajo counselors trained at NTU might be one partial solution to these problems. A minimum of sixty-six academic credits must be earned in specified coursework.
