MFT Trainee/Interns

Bookmark This


MFT/MSW Trainees are students in an MFT or MSW program who have not yet graduated and need a site placement. MFT/MSW Interns are individuals who have ALREADY completed their graduate coursework, and are looking to intern in order to gain hours for licensure requirements. Trainees and interns see clients on an individual, couple, family or group basis in home and/or in office for BBSE hours; attend in-services and supervision; and take hotline and accompaniment shifts.

MFT/MSW students pre- or post-graduation can receive group supervision and see up to 6 clients per week (trainee) or 10 per week (intern.) Trainees and Interns can work in 4 programs: Family Preservation; Sexual Assault; Child Abuse Prevention, Intervention, and Treatment; and Adoption Promotion & Support Services (must have a background in adoption: have been adopted, have adopted, or have related work experience in adoption.)


Candidates must hold a bachelor's degree in a social science, and must have at least six months experience in the field. All selected candidates are required to complete a 40 or 60 hour training program in the response to and treatment of child maltreatment, domestic and sexual violence, substance abuse, mandated reporting, discrimination, victim rights, record keeping, family functioning, suicide, crisis intervention, and community resources. All candidates must participate in an interview in which the program openings and candidate fit, based on experience, availability, and personality, are discussed.


Assist in providing crisis intervention to victims of sexual and domestic violence. SACA's will be responsible for providing emotional support as well as providing referrals to the community.


Please Note: You must have a B.A in a Social Science field to apply for Family Preservation (FP) or Adoption Promotion and Support Services (APSS). Sexual Assault does not require.
