The Family Crisis Center accepts applications for internships from graduate and undergraduate students pursuing studies in counseling, social work, and other human services professions.

The Center offers a broad range of direct practice experience in case management, counseling, groups, and community outreach.

Interns have opportunities across programs to develop knowledge and skills in:

  • intake and assessment
  • crisis intervention (phone and face-to-face)
  • advocacy
  • risk assessment and safety planning
  • goal planning
  • resource management
  • evaluation of progress/outcomes

Advanced practice students will have additional opportunities for:

  • counseling
  • group and community development
  • program planning
  • policy development
  • Specific research interests may be explored.

The Center expects students to have an interest in intimate partner violence and family systems. Students must have effective communication skills, self-awareness, and commitment to professional development and ethical reasoning. Students can expect to receive regular individual and group supervision, initial orientation and ongoing learning opportunities, and access to on-site task supervisors.
