Social Work/MFT/LPCC Traineeship

Counseling & Psychological Services at San Diego State University serves as a training site for graduate students who are working toward master's degrees in Social Work, Marriage & Family Therapy, or as Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors (LPCCs). Licensed professionals provide quality supervision and training, including individual and group supervision, live supervision from behind a one-way mirror, and review of recorded sessions. Additional consultations are provided for ASPIRE (our short-term AOD intervention), biofeedback, and teaching, and two hours of didactic training are provided each week. Learning opportunities focus on the provision of multiculturally-competent short-term individual, couples, and group therapy, assessment and triage, crisis intervention, prevention/psycho-educational presentations, and teaching.
