PURPOSE OF INTERNSHIP
As social workers we're called to wear many different hats. The purpose of this
internship is to expose you to ALL of them. Many of you have entered the clinical track because you are interested in *doing therapy*. However, once you become a licensed clinician, there is more to that you’ll be expected to do than just conducting therapy sessions. This is especially true if you want to go into private practice one day.
For this reason, you will be trained to learn all the skills necessary to be a Clinical Social Worker who operates their own private practice. While you will have responsibilities that are clinical and direct client contact hours, you will also have responsibilities that concern administrative duties, marketing, and documentation. You prwill also be required to participate in grou & individual supervisioh.
ROLES & RESPONSIBILITIES
As previously stated, you will wear many hats. Here are some of the roles you may be asked to take on, as they come with running a private practice.
Direct Client Contact
You will gather the initial information from the Client and ensure they sign
the intake documents prior to Client being scheduled for the assessment with a
After completing intake documents, you will have the ability to complete the
Client Background Questionnaire with Client.
After completing the intake documents and questionnaire with Clients, you will
schedule them for their assessment with a therapist. You are allowed to shadow
After the assessment is completed, interns will be expected to complete the
assessment summary note. A template is provided in this guide.
Much of the direct client contact you will receive will be through shadowing
individual sessions. You will not run individual therapy sessions on your own, but
you will be allowed to shadow and contribute information.
You will first shadow a few group sessions before you will be allowed to Co-Lead
a group session. Each intern is expected to Co-Lead at least 1 group per semester.
You will receive a list of Clients who need to be followed up with and the concern
that you are following up about. You will be expected to complete these duties by
the specified deadline.
As you practice on this road to becoming clinicians it is imperative that you learn efficient
documentation skills and the different requirements of documentation and reporting timelines.
1. You will be expected to document sessions you sit in (SOAP Notes) and contacts you make with clients (PIE Notes).
2. You will learn the difference between a PIE note and a SOAP note and practice using both.
3. You will assist in documenting Biopsychosocial Assessments.
These tasks can include sending emails, connecting with partner agencies and referral sources, updating resource lists, verifying insurance benefits, and other administrative tasks not listed but necessary to run a private practice.
Marketing is important for building and maintaining a consistent caseload and producing more revenue in your business. You will be expected to help with the following:
You will learn the basics of SEO and how to implement them on Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, Twitter and Pinterest. Each intern will be assigned a different platform to run each week.
Each intern will be expected to contribute 1 blog post per month on a Mental Health Topic of their choice, preferably one that they have learned about or experienced through their shadowing sessions.
A newsletter will go out once per month with updates. Every intern will be expected to do format 1 newsletter per semester.
Motivational Messages and Affirmations
Agency will send out motivational messages and affirmations daily to clients. There will be a running list. Interns will be expected to contribute some motivational messages to this batch.
Most schools require 1 hour of supervision per week. You will usually get more than that as we will debrief between sessions. However, we will have group supervision every other week (Wednesday 11am to 1pm) for 2 hours and you will have individual check-ins at least once per month for 1 hour.
