• Practicum and Internship

    Clinical Experience

    Each student must accumulate 700 hours of clinical experience which includes counseling (individual, couple, family, and group), assessment, consultation, supervision, case review, and other types of internship activities. Of those, at least 280 will be direct client hours and up to 420 will be indirect. This clinical work is to be accomplished by providing services to clients at the Psychology and Counseling Center on the HSU campus, and also by engaging in clinical work through a required internship at an agency in the community. Students will complete this clinical requirement while enrolled in CCMF 6306 Clinical Supervision: Practicum and CCMF 6370 Clinical Supervision: Internship.

    Internship Sites:

    HSU Community Clinic
    Students in the program have the opportunity to work with not only HSU students but also individuals, couples, families, children and adolescents in the community. Under the close supervision of program faculty, graduate interns provide affordable counseling in the clinic housed on the HSU campus.

    Off Campus Internship Sites
    Graduate students will also be assigned an off-campus internship site. Students have the opportunity to learn more about our approved sites and request a placement that supports their interests and strengths. Many programs require students to find their own internship site, but in our program we place students in the local clinics, organizations, and mental health facilities that we believe will provide optimal experiences for professional growth.
