The UCC will accept trainees at all levels of skill development. Students in good standing in accredited graduate programs in counseling and psychology are eligible to apply for an internship or practicum placement at the UCC. WFU students who have utilized services at the UCC are eligible to apply and their client status will not be given consideration during the selection process. However, the student will not be able to continue receiving services at the UCC at the time of the practicum/internship. Students who are employed at WFU, either as full- or part-time employees or as graduate assistants, may not be eligible to apply for practicum/internship at the UCC when their role on campus involves heavy student contact. This exclusion exists due to the strong potential for dual relationships with UCC clients. Examples of offices for which this exclusion applies include Residence Life and Housing, the Office of Career and Personal Development, the Learning Assistance Center, and any of the centers housed within the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. Potential applicants who are unsure of their eligibility for an internship/practicum placement at the UCC should be directed to the Assistant Director for Training for clarification.
Interested candidates should submit a letter of interest explaining your previous clinical experiences and what you hope to gain from completing a practicum at the UCC, as well as a current curriculum vita. Applications will only be accepted during the spring semester of each year for placement beginning the following fall semester. The deadline for applying for placement for the 2017-18 academic year is February 24, 2017.
