Program Description

Tuttleman Counseling Services (TCS) is dedicated to providing a high quality health service psychology internship experience to graduate students in psychology.  Doctoral students in counseling, clinical, and closely related fields who have completed all course work and practica, with the exception of the dissertation, are invited to apply. Our interns are strongly supported and nurtured in their professional growth during their internship year, which is viewed as an essential transitional step in their development as they more fully take up their professional role. The integration of prior learning, including both theory and evidence-based interventions, with their own personal interests, core beliefs and interpersonal styles is a cornerstone of our training philosophy. The development of an increased sense of competence and confidence is given equal weight with the continuing development of clinical skills and knowledge. In addition to formal, structured supervision and training, TCS emphasizes ongoing informal and collaborative relationships with all staff members and an "open-door" policy for consultation throughout the internship experience. Training focuses on the provision of psychotherapy and counseling through various modalities and an increased understanding at a systems level of the complex and valuable role played by a college counseling center at a large, urban university. The mission of TCS includes providing counseling-related services for a broad spectrum of emotional, interpersonal, educational and vocational issues. TCS employs a multidisciplinary team that works with students on a short-term basis. The University's diverse population provides our trainees with a rich multicultural counseling experience. In addition, the TCS staff is diverse in terms of theoretical approach, training, and areas of expertise. TCS is fully accredited by IACS.
