Thank you for your interest in our APA-Approved pre-doctoral psychology internship at the Johns Hopkins University Counseling Center. I hope the information on this website gives you a good view of the training that we provide and helps you to decide whether to apply to our internship.
Our training program is an integral part of our center, and our entire staff is involved in and dedicated to the training we provide to our interns. Our interns are involved in virtually every aspect of the work that we do and we place great value on their contribution to our center. We also take very seriously the responsibilities inherent in the training that we provide. We work with our interns to develop an understanding of their goals and seek to help them work toward those goals. When our interns finish the internship, we hope they feel like they grew professionally (as we each hope we are able to say about ourselves each year), that they truly felt like a member of our staff, and that they feel more ready to take the next steps in their professional career.
Our interns gain experience in individual counseling, crisis management, group counseling, outreach and consultation to the university community (such as deans, professors, residence life staff and parents). We seek to provide our interns with a balance of challenging opportunities and a supportive environment within which to manage and grow from these challenges.
If you decide to apply to our internship, please note that our application deadline for the 2014/2015 internship year is November 1, 2013. All internship applications must be submitted using the APPI Online system, available via www.appic.org (click on "APPI Online"). No additional application materials are required.
Again, thank you for your interest in our training program. Please contact me with any questions you might have. I wish you the very best in your search for an internship.
Matt Torres, Ph.D.
