CCAC Training Program
Training new clinicians is one of our primary services. We provide training at a number of different levels. Come learn with us!
Trainees have the opportunity to provide individual psychotherapy to a wide variety of clients under the supervision of our master’s training team. Training includes one hour of individual supervision per week, and the required weekly training rotation (staff meeting, grand rounds, therapy consult).
Pre-master’s interns see a minimum of 8 clients per week, so we request applicants only apply if they have the availability to see the minimum number of clients. We ask that master’s intern applicants have already completed at least one formal practicum before applying to our site.
