Program Description

The ASU CS internship program uses a developmental-practitioner training model to produce entry level psychologists who have the necessary knowledge, skills, and attitudes for professional practice in a multicultural context with diverse adult populations. By the end of the internship year, interns are expected to be ready to function as autonomous, entry-level practitioners with an intermediate to advanced level of competency in all 9 Professional-Wide Competency areas. An important training premise is that interns benefit from being exposed to a variety of role models with differing theoretical orientations, professional interests, and skills. The diversity of role models is seen as enhancing the development of the intern's unique professional identity. Primary strengths of the ASU CS internship are the quality of supervision and training, and the staff's commitment to training to help interns prepare well for their next steps. ASU CS actively works to model and to promote: 1) The valuing of human differences on individual, organizational, and community levels, and 2) the facilitation of human potential. The internship experience includes: A) initial consultation and additional assessment (so called intake), B) provision of individual therapy, consultation, outreach, and crisis services (including after-hour on-call services rotation in the spring semester), C) diversity seminar and intern seminar, D) case conference, F) supervision of a practicum student in the spring semester, and G) Health Services rotation. See our website for a complete program description:  https://eoss.asu.edu/counseling. We welcome contact from potential applicants.
