Qualified graduate students are invited to take advantage of exceptional training opportunities in mental health counseling through the SDCC. The SDCC provides interns with a comprehensive, supportive experience that also allows them the opportunity to participate in outreach programs such as the nationally-recognized Student Support Network.
After completing a comprehensive orientation period that focuses on crisis assessment and intervention, SDCC interns quickly become members of the clinical team. Interns see an average of 10-12 students per week and complete their own intakes. The SDCC is a fast-paced setting, and prior mental health work and/or first-year practicum experience is required.
