Once accepted into our training program, and a start date set (typically in March or September), interns are provided a fourteen hour orientation which addresses the responsibilities included in the internship. A wide array of topics are covered to prepare the new clinician.

The training at VCCC is comprised of three modalities. In addition to supervision, we offer reading groups to expand the and build the clinician’s theoretical knowledge base. A variety of topics are selected for the reading group’s focus. Group discussion is facilitated to enhance learning.

Weekly case conference takes place each Wednesday for one and a half hour per week. This weekly meeting allows for the dissemination of cases and to address any clinical concerns, legal/ethical questions, and also issues arising from either interns or administration necessary to maintain the clinic’s operations. At this meeting, an article is also read and discussed together as a larger group, which continues building the foundation of theory and technique. Guest speakers are often invited into case conference to share their particular expertise.

All interns at the clinic are expected to carry a caseload of 8-10 patient hours per week. These hours are determined based on your scheduling preferences and availability. Clinical experience working with individuals, couples, families, teens, and children is offered. There are also opportunities to conduct group therapy (anger management, mother/infant dyads, etc.), and to see younger clients in two nearby schools.

Whereas a one year commitment is required, many interns choose to stay until licensure.
