Daley Wellness Center Practicum Details

 
 
 
​​The Richard J. Daley College Wellness Center Team welcomes Master's graduate students in clinical/counseling psychology or social work seeking a Therapy practicum placement.

1.) Ideal Applicants: 
Are passionate about helping others 
Have experience working with or interest in working with diverse clientele, and who can build rapport and trust with clients quickly.
Are motivated self-starters
Have strong writing skills
Work well in a team environment
Have the desire to learn and grow.

2.) Supervision Philosophy of the Site:
Supervision is a strongly valued time at this site. You are guaranteed a minimum of an hour of individual supervision and an hour of group supervision each week, though you will often receive more than that. Providing supervision is one of my favorite parts of my job – I enjoy teaching and helping new clinicians to the field grow and develop their personal clinical style. I operate from a strengths based perspective and am open to interns brining their ideas and interests into the work we do.
