EDF458 Supervised Internship in Mental Health Counseling

The Mental Health Counseling Internship, which meets the internship requirements for both Mental Health Counseling Licensure in New York State and accreditation by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), is a 900 hour, field-based experience in a mental health setting. Experiences in the internship site include site-supervised individual and group counseling, client intake process, assessment, and treatment planning. The class also requires attendance at weekly university seminars, weekly group supervision by a university supervisor, and periodic individual supervision with a university-based supervisor. Seminar topics vary and include issues that are germane to the many challenging experiences of interns. This course is taken in the latter part of a student's program of study.
