Internships + Practicums

We have a variety of internships and practicums available. Ranging from marriage and family therapy to social work, from assessments to working with children, our options will help you narrow your own eventual professional focus while preparing for the day-to-day demands of working in mental and emotional health. Whether you're working on your master's or your doctoral degree, see what we have available in your field!

Doctoral Internship Program

Our APA-accredited doctoral internship program has two full-time positions beginning in early September and running through the following August (2000 hours). Our generalist clinician-scholar training model prepares students to develop key skills needed to work effectively in a community mental health setting.

Program Goals and Training

Interns have the option of choosing between two separate year-long tracks at either our Richfield Outpatient site or our Brooklyn Center Outpatient site. Regardless of placement, you will receive education and clinical training in general outpatient therapy and psychological assessment. Interns are also encouraged to develop and implement a therapeutic program of their own. Opportunities for couple or family therapy are also available.
