Department of Counseling for Military and Police that nurtures professional counselors specialized for the army, police organizations and correctional fields
Overview of the department
Recently, in the Korean military, the problem of adaptation of a new generation of soldiers who value individual independence and autonomy has emerged as an important issue not only for military units but also for Korean society. In other words, in recent years, military psychological counseling has been conducted since 2005, with nearly 60,000 soldiers who received psychiatric treatment due to the stress of military service. In addition, the need for counseling for police officers and victims is increasing due to the increase of various crimes in our society. Also, youth problems and crimes such as bullying, school violence, and game addiction arising from adolescents' confusion of self-identity and adjustment disorders have become an important concern for police and society. Accordingly, a more scientific and effective psychological counseling approach is urgently needed for problems arising in the military, police and correctional fields. In response to these realistic demands, Sejong Cyber University established the Department of Counseling for Military and Police, and aims to cultivate psychological counseling experts in special fields such as the military, police, and correctional fields.
To this end, the Department of Counseling for Military and Police is cultivating professional counselors for the army, the police, for juveniles, and for the victims who can contribute to our society by solving problems, facilitating reconciliation, and creating new organizational culture through systematic education and coaching counseling.
In military organizations where organizational and group competencies are emphasized, the problem of adaptation of the new generation of soldiers emerged as an important issue in our society, and thus, military psychological counseling has been conducted since 2005. In addition, the need for counseling for police officers and victims is increasing due to the increase in various crimes.
