The purpose of the Citron Hennessey internship is to build on your academic training by offering a solid grounding in the practice of culturally aware psychotherapy with a focus on evidence-based and internal locus of control modalities, including REBT, ACT and Reality Therapy. It combines practical and experiential components within a supportive and challenging private practice environment. It is not intended to be a social justice or social work training.
You will experience the practical and ethical issues of working directly with adult clients in a variety of situations, and develop essential communication and counseling skills.
The course will encourage you to examine your beliefs, assumptions and attitudes in order to help others do the same. You will be expected to develop your capacity to reflect on your own interpersonal and emotional processes, patterns and experiences primarily through an internal locus of control perspective.
