  • CCSD Mental Health Internship Training Program Building the next generation of school mental health professionals
  • Highly Trained Supervisors All interns and practicum students are placed in schools with an on-site supervisor. All of our supervisors have 10+ years of school mental health experience. Our training model is based on "gradual release", in which students have opportunities to observe, practice and build their skills to full independence.
  • Variety of Experience Interns are exposed to school-based experiences with a variety of age groups. Psychology interns are typically placed in two different schools (one elementary, one secondary), while social work interns are encouraged to do site visits at other schools to gain experience. There is a strong training emphasis on cultural humility to work with diverse population of students and families.
  • Group Supervision Interns participate in a monthly group supervision, facilitated by both a psychologist and a social worker from the leadership team. The group utilizes a reflective-supervision modality to provide safe space for professional growth.
  • Professional Development Interns participate fully in training opportunities offered through the District Mental Health Team. These include workshops on topics such as trauma-informed practice and racial equity, as well as peer consultation groups.
