Psychology Internship Program

Welcome!  

Thank you for your interest in the Wake Forest University Counseling Center (WFUCC) Psychology Internship Program!  The WFUCC Psychology Internship offers a one-year, full-time internship beginning and ending in July each year.  The start date for the 2018-2019 cohort will be July 15, 2018.  Interns complete 2000 hours of training during the year, with at least 500 of those hours being in direct, face-to-face service to clients.  Interns can expect to be engaged in all activities associated with working in a university counseling center, including:

  • individual and group counseling,
  • initial assessment and referral services,
  • triage,
  • after-hours crisis intervention,
  • case management,
  • consultation,
  • psychological assessment,
  • outreach services, and
  • supervision of masters-level mental health trainees.

Additionally, interns will have the opportunity to choose a year-long area of specialization to develop knowledge and skills that are designed to prepare them to take on a coordinator role in a university counseling center or similar setting upon graduation.  Detailed information about our program can be found on the webpages listed on the left-hand side of this page.  Please take the time to explore our website to learn more about our internship program, and feel free to contact me with any questions you may have at lovecd@nullwfu.edu.

Warmly,

Christine Love Sterk, Ph.D., HSP-P
Assistant Director for Training
