Psychology Practicum

Psychology Practicum Description:

CAPS offers an unpaid part-time (20 hours per week) practicum to clinical psychology and counseling psychology students in area graduate training programs. Practicum students can expect to carry a caseload of 6-8 individual therapy clients and will gain experience in conducting brief assessments with students seeking CAPS services for level and urgency of need. Practicum students also have opportunities to co-lead psychotherapy groups and outreach workshops for CAPS. Practicum students participate in weekly didactic seminars, and receive an hour of individual supervision and an hour of group supervision a week. Practicum starts in September and runs for two to three consecutive semesters depending on trainee’s academic program.

Experience Needed:

The ideal candidate will have at least one to two years of clinical experience.  Completion of the Master’s degree and eligibility for temporary licensure is preferred.
