Practicum training program
Counseling Services (CS) offers part-time, ten-month (August 1 to May 31) practicum positions for psychology students in clinical or counseling Psy.D. or Ph.D. programs and for social work students in their foundation or clinical field placement years of their MSW program. The University of Nevada, Reno CS practicum program provides more than just on-the-job practicum training. We offer high-quality training and supervision to help our practicum counselors deliver effective brief counseling to college students with an emphasis on culturally responsive practice and humility.
We provide comprehensive generalist training experience in university psychological services. Weekly structured didactic trainings are provided on clinical, professional, and diversity topics and individual and group supervision is provided. Clinical responsibilities include providing individual and group counseling, providing initial evaluations and conducting psychological assessment (optional for psychology practicum). Activities in prevention and outreach are also available and encouraged.
