Become A Graduate Student Mental Health Trainee!  

“My experience at the Counseling & Psychological Services made me realize that my passion is working with college students. My internship … provided me the opportunity to work with clients who were experiencing a variety of concerns and to improve my counseling skills. I was able to run two groups and realized how much I love group work.” Brittany Lutton 

Counseling & Psychological Services Training Program:  

UNCG Counseling & Psychological Services invites applications for three paid, half-time (20 hour) graduate student trainee positions (advanced practicum/internship). Our trainees work alongside a multidisciplinary professional staff to deliver a comprehensive range of counseling and psychological services, including individual psychotherapy, group counseling, workshops, and outreach programming. Supervision is provided weekly by a senior staff clinician. We provide training that is service oriented and individually tailored to provide a broad range of training opportunities, with consideration for unique goals of each discipline and unique interests of each trainee. We provide trainees with experiences that develop their clinical skills, as well as develop an appreciation for and skills in multicultural competence, social justice, and advocacy for the diverse populations that we serve. In addition to individual supervision, trainees attend a weekly training seminar and clinical all-staff group supervision facilitated by staff members who bring extensive therapy, training and supervision experience. Our training program offers an opportunity to move beyond learning technical skills to applying those skills, as well as integrating the use of self into clinical practice.  

Selection Criteria: 

Applications are accepted from UNCG master’s students in Counseling, joint UNCG-NCA&T master’s students in Social Work, and UNCG doctoral students in Clinical Psychology and Counseling and Counselor Education.
