Family Violence Prevention Services provides counseling and supportive services to victim/survivors of domestic violence. Our on-site supervision provides graduate interns with necessary professional support and knowledge needed for effective work with our client population. Graduate interns will have the opportunity to develop a trauma sensitive counseling style through the professional development they experience with FVPS. There are no paid practicum or internship positions.
Our Counseling Programs afford graduate interns the privilege of providing counseling services to victims/survivors of domestic violence. Programs include:
We see clients from all walks of life and with a variety of needs. Most of our clients have experienced childhood and/or adult trauma.
Students will have the opportunity to work with adults, teens, and children in both individual and group counseling. Students will develop a client case load with the support of their on-site supervisor and program counselors. Each student is regarded with the same respect, professionalism and consideration as staff; consequently, this is expected in return. Students become part of the talented and diverse team/program they are assigned to and are invited to attend weekly case staff meetings. Students are required to attend weekly supervision meetings with their on-site supervisor and to participate in both direct client services and administrative services during their internship.
Program Directors will notify interns of any required texts.
