CCC Wellness Centers Clinical Training Sites

Application Information for the CCC Wellness Centers Training Sites      
       
For the 2020-21 Training Year     
One Application – Seven Unique Locations!     
       
When do I apply?     
MA and SW applicants should submit their packets beginning January 1st, 2020.  Primary interviews for all seven locations will take place in the week of January 20th-24th, 2020.  Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and may be invited to interview at individual locations after that timeframe.  

   
Doctoral Students (diagostic, therapy, and advanced students) may submit their application packets beginning January 31st, 2020. Interviews will take place in February of 2020.
 
  
What are the Wellness Centers?  ​   
The Wellness Centers are student counseling centers, providing best-practices mental health and case management services for students, faculty, and staff. Core services include individual and group counseling, psychological testing, educational outreach, and linkage to community-based services.      
       
What are the Wellness Centers like?      
The diversity of the student population at each college enriches the trainees' experiences as they gain dynamic training in working with clients with varied presentations and from diverse backgrounds. Trainees are trained and supported in working with clients through all phases of treatment, and supervision is provided by skilled staff eager to support trainees’ development. Each location is different, and they utilize brief and long term treatment models.  Diagnostic trainees are provided the opportunity to work with a small caseload of therapy clients in addition to conducting the required number of assessment batteries.      
        
What is the role of the practicum trainee?      
Graduate students in training participate in all aspects of service delivery. Therapy trainees are expected to provide crisis, short-term, and some long-term counseling; case management; and community outreach. Doctoral-level diagnostic trainees, of course, focus on assessment; however, most will also enrich their experience by carrying a small caseload of therapy clients and by participating in outreach.
