Hofstra University is an equal opportunity employer, committed to fostering diversity in its faculty, administrative staff and student body, and encourages applications from the entire spectrum of a diverse community.
Hofstra University’s Student Counseling Services internship involves varied clinical and didactic training. Interns receive intensive training in all aspects of outpatient clinical intervention, with a specific focus on individual psychotherapy and primary prevention activities designed to service the diverse Hofstra University community. Exposure to risk assessment practices, group psychotherapy, and collaborative referral and consultation practices are also organized within this scholar-practitioner training model. Interns are under the guidance of licensed, doctoral level psychologists and receive constructive supervision in their clinical work, including assessment, diagnosis, case formulation, and treatment within a Cognitive and Behavioral framework. Knowledge of empirically supported interventions is fundamental to the delivery of professional services and an integral part of the training model.
Each intern receives a minimum of two hours weekly of individual supervision and two hours of weekly of group supervision, as well as the ongoing support of the supervising staff psychologists. Seminars, peer supervision and consultation, directed readings and case conceptualization and presentations enhance intern training. Interns are offered opportunities to collaborate with university departments (including International Student Affairs, Student Access Services, and Student Health Services staff) in developing groups and psychoeducational workshops for clients from diverse and historically underrepresented backgrounds. In addition, the professional staff at Student Counseling Services works collaboratively with interns to address crises and to provide outreach services to the Hofstra community.
