Program Description

Founded in 1809, The Village is a large, private, non-profit, multi-service agency with a strengths-based, community-centered philosophy. The agency mission is "to build a community of strong, healthy families who protect and nurture children." Interns work in the Enhanced Care Clinic (an outpatient mental health facility) where they provide a range of therapeutic services. Interns also gain experience in completing comprehensive psychological evaluations, mid-level developmental evaluations for children ages 0-6 years old, and professional development/research projects. Supervision, advanced seminars, and team meetings are integral aspects of the training. The internship program, along with the agency as a whole, is fully committed to the ongoing pursuit of cultural competence. Village clients are diverse in terms of racial and cultural identity. Many have histories of significant trauma, as well as complex life circumstances. Interns are therefore trained in evidence-based practices for the treatment of childhood trauma. The work is both challenging and rewarding. Interns who are a good match with us are generally those who have strong assessment and intervention skills and who also possess and demonstrate energy, flexibility, a sense of humor, and the willingness to continue learning. Our goals include: 1. Competence in working professionally with diverse individuals, groups and communities, and addressing the needs of diverse, vulnerable and underserved populations; 2. Competence in psychotherapeutic interventions with children, adolescents, and families from diverse, vulnerable, and underserved populations; 3. Competence in assessment and diagnosis of problems, capabilities, and issues associated with individuals and families; 4. Competence in interdisciplinary functioning and consultation skills; 5. Competence in professional values, attitudes, and ethics; 6. Competence in reflective self-practice, self-assessment, and self-care and the effective use of supervision. Candidates should have a minimum of 1200 practicum hours, with 600 hours being direct client intervention and assessment(combined).
