Psychology Student Interns

Student psychology Interns

Description

If you’re a Senior in High School who has taken or is taking AP Psychology or a College Student or recent College Graduate interested in Psychology who is looking for a high-quality training opportunity, we may be able to help.

Please note: As an exclusively fee-for-service private practice, we are NOT able to offer clinical internships or externships to graduate students at this time. Although you will likely interact with clients on the telephone, or by training clients to use equipment such as Alpha-Stim or Muse (EEG brain training equipment) you will NOT be doing any psychotherapy with our clients. Therefore, our internships will NOT meet your graduate-level clinical externship or internship training program’s client contact hour requirements.

Also please note: This is a highly competitive training opportunity.  You will be learning basic counseling skills through regular practice sessions with other interns and supervision with licensed clinicians. You will have opportunities to try our equipment (such as the Muse EEG feedback system). This is a learning, not an income-generating, position at the practice.  As such this is a strictly unpaid position.

Our interns assist in doing background research for media posts, Facebook curating, TV interviews, Advice columns, etc. They collaborate in writing our advice columns with our licensed clinicians, assist in the management of our lending library, assist in public speaking planning and preparation, and update Instagram posts. They can assist our office manager in order to learn about some of the administrative aspects of practice management. They can lead projects such as the Main Street Trick or Treat event and they have limited direct interaction with clients on administrative matters and on occasion assisting patients with using the Alpha-Stim technology.

We do our best to ensure that we have interns in pairs to that they can practice person-centered therapy skills with each other in role-play type mini-sessions. To see a little of what this sort of therapy looks like, watch this video.

We demand much from our interns and will give much back in return.

Candidates must possess the following skills and qualities:

  • Maturity that includes an ABSOLUTE capacity for maintaining confidentiality
  • Reliability and responsibility at all times
  • Diligence when assisting staff
  • Compassionate spirit of service when interacting with clients
  • Intellectual curiosity when engaged with clinicians
  • Enthusiasm for the field and humility when working with those senior to you (which will be everyone)

Interns will be given an outstanding opportunity to learn about the profession with a supportive staff who enjoys teaching and mentoring.
