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 Fall 2023. If you are interested in applying for Spring 2024, please submit your application, with supporting documentation, prior to September 30, 2023. We will be in contact once we have reviewed all applications and will begin the interview process shortly thereafter.
We are accepting graduate students in both counseling and social work.
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.
