Counseling Center Training Program for Doctoral-Level Psychology Interns
The Counseling Center offers predoctoral and postdoctoral clinical psychology interns excellent training and experience working with a diverse college-student population.
CCA is a four-year college devoted to fine arts, design, architecture, curatorial practice, and creative writing that offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs. The Counseling Center provides brief and longer-term psychodynamic therapy, referrals, psychological education, and related services to CCA students. The center also provides consultation and referrals to faculty and staff.
Using a contemporary psychoanalytic orientation, interns respond to the immediate problems and deeper concerns of students working in a creative academic environment. The Counseling Center supports CCA's mission by helping students succeed in their educational goals and encouraging them to develop insight into their personal psychology.
The CAPIC-approved, full-time predoctoral internship and the full-time postdoctoral internship require 40 hours per week, totaling 1,500 hours for the academic year. Interns carry a caseload of 22 clients, attend weekly didactic trainings, participate in group supervision, and conduct workshops for students, staff, and faculty as needed. In addition to working with individual adults, there are also occasional opportunities for couples work and group therapy. Interns also receive three hours of individual supervision per week.
The training program begins in August and ends in May, and a stipend is provided. We prefer applicants with prior experience in outpatient psychotherapy, interest in contemporary psychoanalytic orientations, and a desire to work with art students in a college setting. There are four positions available for the 2013-14 academic year.
To apply as a postdoctoral internship candidate, please submit a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, and two to three letters of recommendation via U.S. mail:
