Internship Training Opportunity

Marriage Family Therapist Registered Intern  - Unpaid Internship Program

OPPORTUNITY: Well Baby Center, a non-profit parenting center and counseling clinic, is seeking BBS registered MFT interns with more than 1 year left to fullfill their 3000 hours and who are passionate about working with children and families. This is an unpaid, year-long internship program in Infant-Family Mental Health. Once you have completed your hours, there is a possibility of joining our team as staff.

TRAINING: Interns are provided with high-level training in psychodynamic, parent-child relationship-based therapy including training in the Mindful Parenting Group model, which focuses on enhancing the attachment relationship and breaking the multigenerational transmission of dysfunction. In addition, we have a monthly Clinical Training Seminar, often with guest speakers from within our community. It is an opportunity to delve into psychoanalytic theory and practice in depth.

SUPERVISION: We provide 4 hours of weekly group supervision (one for therapeutic groups and the other for counseling clients), plus 1 hour of individual supervision, most likely with a volunteer psychoanalyst from within the community.

REQUIREMENTS: Required minimum of 12 - 15 hours per week doing initial consultations, parenting consultations, outreach speaking at preschools and outside parenting groups, clinical toy closet maintenance, as well as ongoing therapy with groups, children, couples, and families, plus 5 hours of supervision/week. We also ask that you reserve 2 - 3 hours per week maintaining clinical charts. Interns are required to be available on either one weeknight till 9 pm or one weekend day.

Candidates MUST be available for current group supervision times: Wednesday 9:00 – 11:00 AM and Fridays 12:00 – 2:00 PM.

Interns need to pass a TB Test and Live Scan background check, which WBC provides.

APPLICATION: To be considered, please submit a resume and a cover letter addressing 1) your interest and experience working with young children and families, 2) your interest and experience using a psychodynamic approach, and 3) your scheduling availability for the hours noted above, including potential a starting date.
