(Notification of phone interviews by 12/14/22) Phone interviews will be conducted from January 4-12, 2023. Applicants are welcome to visit to gather information about the internship, but the Intern Search Committee does not require such a visit for the selection process. Current staff and interns are available by email to answer questions as well. An optional, non-evaluative on-site/virtual Open House for ranked applicants is tentatively scheduled for Friday, Feburary 03, 2023.
The training and development of emerging professionals are integral to the mission of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Counseling Center. We strive to support the development of solid clinical and professional skills in working with the university student populations, infuse sensitivity to diversity issues throughout the training program, and allow for an unfolding exploration of identities and how various identities and experiences interplay with professional activities.
We conceptualize interns as emerging professionals in an ongoing process of identity development with the ultimate goal of a clear and articulated identity as a psychologist, also integrating various other dimensions of identity (e.g., gender, culture, race, etc.) We see interns moving through developmental stages and tasks both in a larger lifelong process and in the process contained within the internship year.
Our training objectives are to provide training and experience in planning and delivering high-quality direct clinical services; offering outreach and consultation services; and developing one's professional identity as a knowledgeable, skilled, and ethical psychologist.
