American University Counseling Center's Pre-Doctoral Internship
Thank you for your interest in our training program. We know that your decision about internship is an important one. The working environment of your internship and the people with whom you work will likely have a substantial impact on your identity, future practice, and overall well-being. With that in mind, we would like to share with you as much information as possible to assist you in making a choice that is good for you. In our online information, we hope you find answers to any questions that you may have about the AUCC internship training experience. You can find more information by clicking on the links on the right or by downloading a PDF document detailing our training program here.
Some unique features of our internship include the wide variety of training opportunities related to Counseling Center specialty work, a focus on psychodynamic theory and multicultural competence, a range of group therapy and supervision opportunities, and the unique character of our students. Additionally, we offer a warm, supportive, creative, stimulating and fun working environment. Our staff is large enough to represent a diversity of styles and perspectives, but small enough to feel warm and personal. We hope that our interns, too, experience the quality of our community as an optimal environment for growth and as a distinctive strength of our training program.
We welcome your application to our program and wish you the best in your application process.
