On January 22, the Counseling and Forensic Psychology (CPSY) program hosted an internship fair to support HNU’s graduate students. The fair helps students prepare for their clinical traineeship/practicum (mandatory in the counseling and forensic psychology program).
For CPSY students, the traineeship is an essential component of their education--they need to complete a certain number of clinical hours to graduate. During their traineeship, students may carry their own clinical caseloads as therapists, receive monthly in-service trainings and individual and group supervision, and gain an understanding of community resources and the inner workings of a agency.
HNU is proud to partner with approximately 75 affiliated organizations in the greater Bay Area and beyond to offer a large array of opportunities for our graduate students.
The participating community agencies this year were:
- Allen Temple Health and Social Services
- Seneca Family of Agencies
- Covenant House of California
- Alameda County Crisis Support Services
- Roger’s Behavioral Health
- La Familia
- East Bay Agency for Children
- Family Service Counseling Center
- UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland, Center for the Vulnerable Children
- OUSD Behavioral Health
- Berkeley Christian Counselors
- Bay Area Youth Alternatives
