Clinical Counseling Internship Program
The Clinical Counseling Internship program at Penn State Brandywine provides clinical training in a wide range of mental health issues as well as health and wellness outreach programming that is specific to college student populations. The internship provides a multidisciplinary training model and is open to advanced graduate students in Clinical Social Work, Counseling and/or Counseling Psychology, Marriage and Family Therapy, and Higher Education Counseling.
The Clinical Counseling Services Internship enables the acquisition of competencies necessary for the practice of counseling in college and university counseling centers, college student mental health, and with the emerging adult population. The interns are trained in developing the following skills: interview assessment, case conceptualization, therapeutic intervention, consultation and crisis intervention, case management, understanding of university systems, as well as developing outreach programming on a variety of health and wellness concerns and initiatives. There is also a Student Affairs track in which Higher Education graduate students can gain valuable experience in outreach and college campus-based programming.
Penn State Brandywine Counseling Services currently works with local graduate programs directly to recruit interns for our program. If interested, please contact your graduate program field coordinator to inquire further.
