The Family Crisis Center accepts applications for internships from graduate and undergraduate students pursuing studies in counseling (graduate level only), social work, and other human services professions. The Center offers a broad range of direct practice experience in case management, counseling, groups, and community outreach. Interns have opportunities across programs to develop knowledge and skills in intake and assessment, crisis intervention (phone and face-to-face), advocacy, risk assessment and safety planning, goal planning, resource management, and evaluation of progress/outcomes. Advanced practice students will have additional opportunities for counseling, group and community development, program planning, and policy development. Specific research interests may be explored.
The Center expects students to have an interest in intimate partner violence and family systems. Students must have effective communication skills, self-awareness, and commitment to professional development and ethical reasoning. Students can expect to receive regular individual and group supervision, initial orientation and ongoing learning opportunities, and access to on-site task supervisors.
