Thank you for your interest in Shenandoah University’s Counseling Center’s Internship Program. Our training program is designed to facilitate the transition from student to professional through understanding college counseling issues, supervision and clinical experiences. We attempt to create an atmosphere that is conductive to interns learning and development through an appropriate balance of support and challenge. The primary focus of the intern/practicum experience is the development of therapeutic skills. Graduate students will see students individually, conduct groups as available, and conduct psycho-educational outreach programs related to mental health as well as alcohol and other drug issues.

Interns may also be asked to perform administrative, outreach, and other miscellaneous tasks based on the needs of the Counseling Center.
