Practicum

The Marital and Family Therapy program contains two separate internships which are contracted by the department to meet the educational, geographic, and specific interests of the student. The first internship, MFTH 617, consists of sixteen hours per week while the second internship, MFTH 618 and MFTH 619, involves twenty hours each week. Successful completion of each sequential course is a prerequisite for enrollment in the next course.  In both internships clinical supervision and art therapy supervision are provided and the student is able to accumulate up to 840 hours with a minimum of 350 accumulated hours providing art therapy services to individuals, groups, and/or families. These internships are designed to foster student growth by allowing for the development and practice of clinical skills. Supervisors work under contract with our department to closely monitor and support the clinical training of our students while they are gaining their trainee hours in the practicum setting.

Supervisors are chosen from both our alumni and the staff of agencies where our students are placed for traineeships.
