Graduate Student Trainee Program

The Counseling Center at UNCG invites applications for three half-time (20 hour) graduate student trainee positions (advanced practicum/internship) each academic year. Applications are accepted from UNCG doctoral students in Clinical Psychology and Counseling and Counselor Education; UNCG master’s students in Counselor Education, and joint UNCG-NCA&T master’s students in Social Work. After a review of applications, individuals are selected to be interviewed by the Counseling Center staff. Students from UNCG or NCA&T who are hired will be paid a stipend of $10,000 to $12,000 and will work during the fall and spring semesters of the next academic year. This is an advanced placement and is not appropriate for students without clinical experience.

The Counseling Center provides counseling services to UNCG students addressing a diverse range of mental health and developmental concerns. Trainees will provide individual psychotherapy, group counseling, workshops, and outreach services. Supervision is provided weekly by a senior staff clinician and will also include group supervision opportunities. In addition, trainees will attend staff meetings, case conferences, and training seminars. Trainees will gain experience in most aspects of a university counseling center. Our clinically diverse staff members bring extensive clinical and supervision/training experience and truly enjoy working with trainees. The Counseling Center is part of Student Health Services on campus and works closely with several other departments within Student Affairs and across campus.

Applicants are asked to complete the trainee application before January 31st. Electronic submissions are required. Review of applications begins on February 1, 2020. Application will open December 1, 2019.
