Training Philosophy

We strive to:

  • To offer supervised clinical experiences to practicum students and interns, who come from counseling or clinical psychology and social work programs
  • Based on a developmental mentoring model, which is sensitive to the developmental needs of trainees throughout the year, providing them with necessary supervision and support
  • To provide training and experience in planning and delivering high quality direct clinical services to clients
  • To assist trainees in further establishing and developing a professional identity as knowledgeable, skilled, and ethical clinicians in training
  • To focus on supporting the development of solid clinical and professional skills in working with the university student population
  • To infuse sensitivity to issues of diversity throughout the training program
  • To allow for an unfolding exploration of identities and how our various identities and experiences interplay with professional activities
