The Adolescent and Child Program is now accepting applications for MFT Trainees and Associates, as well as Associate Social Workers for the 2018-2019 year!
Interning in this program entails conducting individual and group therapy with adolescents ages 11-18 as well as collateral parenting consultations. The ACT therapist works at our clinic as well as conducts school counseling at Beverly Hills High School and the Moreno Continuing Education Program.
The time commitment for the ACT Program is about 20 hours/week. They will need to be available to work at the schools during school hours 2 days/week and at the clinic with the ability to do one evening per week or Saturdays. They will also need to be available all day on Mondays in order to fulfill their training requirements.
Applicants do not need to have had prior experience working with children or adolescents but of course any clinical or volunteer experience will help support your application.
Applicants must be able to being their internship at the end of July and commit to the full year.
Applicants may apply to both the Adult Therapy and ACT Program. If you are accepted into both programs, applicants will be given a chance to choose one. First year interns at TMCC are not allowed to work in both programs simultaneously.
