Frequently Asked Questions
1. What are pre-internship qualifications?
This is a challenging clinical internship that is designed for students who are ready to begin taking on their own caseload with supervision. With this in mind, we require students to have completed foundational theories and methods courses. Skills lab and other counselling-related experiences are beneficial as well.
2. What modalities will I get exposure to?
The primary modality we use is EFT (Sue Johnson). Students may also have opportunities to practice DBT, CBT, and other modalities.
3. Where can I get liability insurance?
Some schools provide liability insurance for their students. Otherwise, you may need to find your own liability insurance online.
4. What is team counselling?
Interns work in teams of 3-4 to case-conceptualize and debrief. Interns may also have opportunities to co-counsel during psychotherapy sessions. See here for more details.
5. Why do I need to complete the EFT Externship?
Since EFT is the primary modality used at this clinic, it is important that interns/therapists have a foundational knowledge of the principles of EFT prior to taking on their own caseloads. Previous interns have found that learning the principles of EFT ahead of time helped them to utilize this modality for more effective therapy and learning.
