Our agency strives to provide interns with challenging, developmentally appropriate, and multiculturally sensitive training experiences. We accomplish this by emphasizing training that is sequential, cumulative, and graded in complexity. We provide didactic trainings, experiential learning, mentorship, and role modeling from various staff members. We encourage self-examination, awareness of the impact of self on others, and multicultural awareness and sensitivity.  Given the above aspects of our site and training program, favorable consideration will be made to applicants who have a strong interest in brief therapy, college counseling/working with young adults, working with diverse populations in counseling and outreach/prevention programs, and further developing cultural sensitivity.
