Program Description

CAPS is a counseling and mental health center for 48,000+ diverse students attending Indiana University. The internship emphasizes interpersonal and cognitive therapy and offers abundant clinical opportunities with individuals and groups. Depending on availability and client requests there are usually opportunities to work with couples. Additionally, the program offers supervised supervision experience with predoctoral practicum clinicians and a varity of outreach activities. We also offer three year long concentration opportunities (sexual assault programing and counseling, diversity outreach coordination and counseling, and disordered eating programing and counseling). The on-line brochure provides extensive information about the program. We consistently hear feedback from interns that they received high quality supervision, many saying it was "the best supervision" they have had to date. Moreover, interns are pleased with the variety of clinical experiences available to them. Interns report that the student population was more clinically diverse than anticipated. Our interns appreciate the warmth, interest, and knowledge staff bring to their experience. Interns appreciate CAPS' positive environment and culture.
