Family is considered one of the most important elements in life. At Grand Canyon University, our Bachelor of Science in Behavioral Health Science with an Emphasis in Family Dynamics degree can give you the tools and training necessary to apply to jobs in numerous career fields, such as:
Behavioral Health Technician, Specialist or Paraprofessional
Do you want to work alongside doctors and nurses? If so, then you might want to apply for jobs as a behavioral health technician, specialist or paraprofessional after earning your degree. In one of these positions, you will be responsible for assisting doctors and nurses as they treat patients who are dealing with emotional abuse, PTSD, substance abuse, mental instability and other behavioral health issues.
Mental Health Service Technician
This career option is similar to that of a behavioral health technician, specialist or paraprofessional. Mental health service technicians work with doctors and nurses to treat patients who have mental and behavioral health issues. These professionals typically work in doctors’ offices, hospitals, patient care facilities or government facilities.
Social or Community Service Manager
If you are more interested in social work than medical work, then a career as a social or community service manager might be an appealing choice after graduating with your family dynamics degree. This career path will help you serve organizations that provide a variety of public services and will have you working in government agencies, nonprofit organizations and social service companies.
As a case manager, you will work closely with individuals dealing with mental and behavioral health issues to come up with the most appropriate treatment plans. Case managers can work in an assortment of facilities, including mental health clinics, home care agencies, hospitals and juvenile detention centers.
