Training & Supervision
The Training Program of PCSSS offers internship opportunities for candidates in advanced degree programs in psychology, marriage and family therapy, pastoral care, holistic counseling, and related fields, from accredited institutions. For a minimum of nine months, interns become a working part of the PCSSS staff.
Students are supported and encouraged to individualize their internship in areas of their own special interest while receiving a well-rounded experience in active client work. In the past, our interns have focused on couples/marriage work, children, adolescents, the elderly, domestic violence, and mindfulness training, as well as general therapy. Interns with PCSSS create and run groups, maintain a small client caseload, and are expected to participate fully in the activities of PCSSS. Interns are provided with weekly individual clinical supervision, group supervision several times a month, on-call access to supervisors and senior clinicians, and other learning opportunities.
Interns develop their own schedule and caseload, learn clinical record-keeping responsibilities, and hone their skills in realistic situations. The Training Director and Clinical Director are in communication with the degree-awarding school. Our master's and doctoral level interns have come from, Boston University, Eastern Nazarene College, Loyola of Maryland, William James College (formerly Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology), Salve Regina University, and Andover Newton Theological School.
