Undergraduate Outreach & Prevention Internship Program
Counseling & Psychological Services offers outreach and prevention programs to student groups, faculty, and administrators to help ensure that the academic and social environments are conducive to student growth and development.
The undergraduate outreach internship is designed to provide exposure to the college counseling center environment. Selected interns will assist with marketing CAPS's services, preparing educational information on mental health concerns typically encountered by college students, and delivering psycho- educational information via campus fairs and classroom presentations. For example, we are often asked to give presentations on topics such as managing test anxiety, stress management, improving relationships, preventing sexual assault, multicultural and diversity-related topics, and dealing with conflict to classrooms or student groups. We also host sexual assault, eating disorders, alcohol and other drug misuse, and intimate partner violence awareness activities in collaboration with others on campus. There are also opportunities for interns to develop programs of interest on other college counseling-related topics.
Interns must be enrolled in an undergraduate program in psychology or a related field and must be enrolled in an internship course. This internship is an unpaid, 10 hour per week, training program. Ideal candidates are enthusiastic, organized, creative, interested in issues of diversity and multiculturalism, and possess excellent communication skills. Confidentiality is a crucial requirement for this internship. Please note: Students who are receiving services from Counseling & Psychological Services are not eligible.
