The clinical staff at Counseling & Psychology Services of LaGrange, Inc. recognizes the importance of quality clinical training offered by college and university graduate programs, as well as the benefits to participating in the process of developing professionals. For these reasons we offer a select number of students the opportunity for advanced clinical training through practicum and internship. The following are important aspects of our practicum and internship programs:
Basic requirements for application are enrollment in a graduate level counseling or psychology program from an accredited college or university, valid proof of identity (such as a drivers license), and no criminal history. All candidates are required to send 1) a letter of interest, 2) a current curriculum vita that includes two references, and 3) a copy of their current academic transcript to 610 Ridley Avenue, LaGrange, Georgia 30240 (Attention: Shannon Dunlap, Ph.D.). Applicants who are deemed to be the best qualified and best fit for our clients and the organization are invited for an interview. Select applicants receive an invitation to participate in the training program via e-mail along with a deadline to accept or decline.
Applicants who accept a position will be required to commit to a minimum of one academic year (Fall and Spring semesters or 9 months); however, a calendar year is preferred. In addition, the individual would be required to sign a confidentiality, ethical practice, and professionalism agreement (Graduate Training Agreement) and sign/authorize a criminal background check. Finally, prior to start date a current original of the student’s academic transcript (sent from the college or university) and proof of student practice liability coverage are also required.
