Application Information for the CCC Wellness Centers Training Sites                        
For the 20202-23Training Year                       
One Application – Multiple Unique Locations!                       
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.
