OPPORTUNITY: Well Baby Center, a nonprofit 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 age 0-5 and their families for a one-year, unpaid internship. There is a possibility of joining the team as staff once your hours have been completed.

TRAINING: Interns are provided with high-level training in psychodynamic, parent-child relationship-based therapy including training in the Mindful Parenting Group model, which all focus on enhancing the attachment relationship and breaking the multigenerational transmission of dysfunction.

SUPERVISION: 4 hours of weekly group supervision (one 2 hour group for therapy groups and another 2 hour group for counseling clients), plus 1 hour of individual supervision, most likely with an analyst in the community.

REQUIREMENTS: There is a required minimum of 10-12 clinical hours per week doing initial consultations, parenting consultationswl, and ongoing therapy with groups, children, couples, and families, plus the 5 hours of supervision. Interns are required to be available on either one weeknight or one weekend day.

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

Interns will also need to pass a TB Test and Live Scan background check.

APPLICATION: To be considered, you must 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 starting date.
