F&CS accepts graduate students in mental health disciplines (social work, mental health counseling) for clinical internships. (Psychologists, marriage and family therapists, and creative arts therapist trainees should inquire- availability may vary.) Mental Health Counseling Students: We are able to host students who wish to perform their practicum and internship at the same site successively, however we do not host practicum only students.
We require a two semester minimum commitment. Applications for the Fall-Spring semesters should be submitted in March of the previous academic year. Students who are interested in an alternate start date are encouraged to inquire for availability. Students should be aware that typically our site requires more than the minimum weekly hours required by most programs to meet the required face to face hours components. Internship hours are scheduled during business hours only.
In our clinical internship, students will work with an identified caseload of individual psychotherapy clients. There may be opportunities to work with groups, and with our EAP or intake services. Students receive at least weekly individual supervision, group supervision, and access to staff trainings and professional development.
Strong preference is given to students with previous human service experience, and those looking to develop skills working with underserved populations, particularly older adults and young children.
