Interns and Trainees will be required to attend individual and group supervision on a weekly basis in order to maintain the level of competence needed to provide treatment and to meet the minimum requirements for licensing. Interns, post-graduate, need 1 unit of supervision for every 10 clients they see. Trainees currently enrolled in school require 1 unit of supervision for every 5 clients. Supervision will be integral in the interns growth and ability to create a support network.
The Trainings we offer at The Ness Counseling Center are specific to the majority of the population we serve. These trainings are designed to increase competency in skills, clinical understanding and good judgment. This internship opportunity is structured to help students receive weekly individual and group supervision and direct clinical experiences. Since this field is so dynamic and ever evolving we continue educating ourselves and incorporating what we learn into our training program. The trainings include:
- Domestic Violence
- Crisis Intervention
- Mindfulness and Meditation
- Art Therapy (taught by a certified ATR)
- Treatment Planning and Assessments
- Anger Management
- Child Sexual Abuse
The Ness Counseling Center requires a minimum of a 1 year commitment. We provide individual and group supervision on a weekly basis and training for clinical enhancement. We begin our enrollment process in January accepting applications until April. We review all applications and invite potential candidates to interview. Practicum starts the last week in August. All internships are 18 hours per week. Bilingual candidates are a plus but not a requirement.
