Internships

The Children’s Bereavement Center provides a unique clinical setting for undergraduate and graduate students. Our internship program offers our student counselors the opportunity to work with children while gaining valuable knowledge and communication skills under professional supervision.  If you are interested in helping children and their families, we welcome the opportunity to interview you for one of our clinical internship positions.

Each semester, we get many applications from students who wish to do their internship with us.  We are humbled and grateful by the number of students wanting to learn more about grief and working with our families.  Currently, we have filled our internship positions for Spring 2023.  If you are interested in applying for Summer 2023, please submit your application, with supporting documentation, prior to February 2023.  We will be in contact once we have reviewed all applications and will begin the interview process shortly thereafter.

If you are a student intern and you currently have a site for Spring but need additional hours or more experience in facilitating groups, we do have Adjunct positions available.  An Adjunct Student Counselor is expected to co-facilitate two separate evening groups each week for the entire semester.  Please apply on the Practicum/Internship application.  Thank you for your interest in the Children’s Bereavement Center.

We are happy to announce that our Uvalde location is accepting two student counselors for Spring 2023. If you are interested in applying for this internship, please call Lisa Buendicho to discuss the next steps at 210-736-4847 ext. 240.
