Masters-Level Internship Placement at Counseling & Psychological Services
Welcome to our Counseling & Psychological Services Training Program website! I appreciate your interest in our masters-level internship and hope that the information provided through our website will be helpful in determining if this program is a good fit for you. Our center is very committed to the highest standards in training as well as to the ideals contained in our diversity statement.
We offer a year-long internship training experience in individual, personal counseling. The internship is a 22 hour per week commitment. The requirements of those 22 hours are outlined in the Internship Program Overview. Supervision is provided by senior staff who have been licensed for at least two years. All sessions are video recorded for review by supervisors. Additionally, masters-level interns may expect opportunities for live supervision from their supervisors. Masters-level interns have access to CAPS training resources such as our collection of videos and DVD's demonstrating different approaches to working with clients.
The interview will include questions related to your application packet, previous experience and expectations of the internship experience at the Counseling & Psychological Services. We will also ask you to review a brief vignette and provide a case conceptualization and initial thoughts on treatment strategies. Our interest is in obtaining some understanding of your conceptualization skills and reasoning skills in approaching your work with clients.
If you have any thoughts or questions about this application process, please let me know. Again, I appreciate your interest in our masters-level internship training program and look forward to receiving your application packet should you feel that this would be a good fit for you.
Best, Christina Ingram, Ph.D.
