J. Scott Branson Portrait

I am an Assistant Professor of Counselor Education at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI. I primarily teach a course on treating substance use disorders, however, I have experience teaching a variety of master's and doctoral level counseling courses, and I am in the process of designing a new doctoral level andragogy class.

In addition to teaching, I am the Principal Investigator in the Better Outcome through Training (B.O.T.) Lab at Wayne State University. Our current research focuses on effectively training mental health professionals to conceptualize and treat substance use disorders. My long-term research agenda focuses more broadly on the relationship between mental health professionals' training and clients' psychotherapeutic outcomes.
