Initial Orientation, Service, Training Activities

 

Interns begin their appointments five weeks prior to the beginning of Fall term. The first few weeks' activities include an orientation to the university, the Counseling and Testing Center, and the training program. Specialized training seminars are offered in selected areas (e.g., brief therapy, multicultural supervision). A flexible schedule is maintained during this period to allow interns to become acquainted with the area and the University while also moving into their offices.

  * Interns generally work 40-45 hours per week (with some busier weeks of 50 hrs winter or spring quarters).  To meet 2000 hour internship expectation with academic break periods and 180 hr. vacation hours, interns need to work more than 40 hours weekly during fall, winter and spring terms.  We balance periods of heavy caseloads with fewer seminars to help decrease workload and less responsibility during winter student break.
