|Golden Gate University offers a practical training program to post-graduate interns who are working toward licensure as marriage and family therapists, clinical social workers, or licensed professional clinical counselors. |
| Essential Functions: |
|A minimum of 8 hours a week is required. A typical 8-hour commitment looks like this: |
- Supervision: We review caseloads (this includes case presentations), discuss clinical/health philosophies, interviewing and counseling techniques, overviews of common client mental health challenges and behaviors, as well as other general topics applicable to current staff needs. Also, we discuss topics of interest to interns as well as issues and concerns that emerge based on our work, particularly as they pertain to our adult learner client population. As needed we set aside time for a specific training topic.
- Client appointments and case notes: Each intern is expected to set aside at least 5 hours per week for counseling sessions (which occur on an appointment basis only). We offer low-cost face-to-face psychological counseling to help our students navigate life situations that get in the way of meeting their academic goals. We also offer assessment and referrals. Our clinical services are issue-focused and time-limited. Our clients present a variety of personal, social and emotional challenges or are experiencing difficult developmental and life transitions, as well as family or relationship difficulties.
- Inquiry duty (1 hour, estimated, on-campus or off): Each intern is assigned to inquiry duty coverage for a minimum of two weekdays depending on our staffing level. This involves conducting screening interviews that help us determine the appropriate level service for each caller.
| Qualifications, Education & Experience: |
|Master's in Psychology or Social Work and some previous clinical experience in counseling psychology. |
