Descriptor "The internship program strives to train interns in the skills, behaviors, and attitudes of a psychologist working in the context of a university counseling center. These include: professionalism, clinical intervention, outreach and consultation, and supervision. In addition, attention to cultural diversity and evidence-based practice are integrated throughout the course of training. Interns will also develop competency in providing clinical and educational skills in a training concentration including substance abuse, eating disorders, or mind/body therapeutic approaches in the course of the internship year. The program has a dual focus on both clinical training and professional growth. It is expected that interns will make significant developmental transitions during the internship year, including consolidation of a professional identity, enhanced confidence in skills, and increased ability to function autonomously. The training program recognizes the inherent stress that accompanies these transitions. It is designed to provide activities, procedures, and opportunities that facilitate optimal professional growth while remaining sensitive to the challenges of that growth. While interns frequently seek counseling center positions as their first employment, the training at the University of Notre Dame's Counseling Center is broad enough to prepare interns well for a variety of employment settings.
