Associate Marriage Family Therapist/Intern
Los Angeles, CA
The intent of our Marriage and Family Internship is to provide a broadly based training program to move MFT/LPCC Interns on towards licensure. Training is developmentally sequenced, experiential, and utilizes multiple intervention modalities. All training is supported by intensive supervision, seminar experiences, and a commitment to life-long learning.
Our internship is designed to prepare ethical and multi-culturally sensitive clinicians who can move with competence, creativity, and flexibility into a variety of positions providing clinical, consultation, and outreach services to adults, adolescents, children, families, couples, and groups in outpatient settings. Self-reflection and interpersonal dialogue are highly valued aspects of our training. Supervisors and seminar facilitators encourage though never require self-disclosure of personal information that may facilitate or hinder clinical practice or collegial relationships.
We are looking for applicants who have shown in their practicum placements that they are curious, eager to learn and engage, and flexible in their thinking and approaches to clinical service. As an organization we value and respect cultural and individual differences and seek interns who are committed to their continued personal and professional growth as clinicians.
