DescriptionA Prospering Vision (APV) is an Outpatient Behavioral Health Private Practice Agency with locations in the cities of Waterbury, Danbury, and Naugatuck that utilizes an array of therapeutic modalities delivered through an individual, couples, families, and group session format.

Since 2015 we have been running a successful Internship Program offering placement opportunities for students training. Our program has been designed for Master Level Counseling and Social Worker students, License Nurse Practitioners (APRNs)’ students, and Bachelors and Masters’ Level Human Services students. We view internship as a three-way partnership between the student, agency, and school, with the goal of providing the student with the ability to learn all areas stipulated in the Learning Contract. Our overall objective is to help the student integrate theory and practice.
An internship with APV provides students with the opportunity to have real life experiences with individuals, families, communities and organizations. Field instruction, provided by experienced and highly skilled certified and licensed Social Workers, determine to help students connect these experiences to their academic training.
We carefully match students with placement sites, and assignments are varied to offer each intern the highest quality learning opportunity and environment. Our aim is to expose students to the range of problems that lead clients to our doors in the many diverse settings APV operates in.
Throughout the Internship Program supervisors evaluate Teamwork, Communication, Client Focus, Attendance and Punctuality, Job Knowledge, and Goal Completion. Our Learning Goals and Objectives Plan for Internship has been meticulously elaborated to ensure, as an outcome, that all students become highly qualified professionals once the program is completed.
