Training opportunities at Insight Counseling Centers include:
Student Practicum and Internships
Insight Counseling Centers offers a variety of supervisory experiences for therapists at various stages of their training. We utilize carefully selected practicum students and interns in most of our offices. Students from local Masters and Doctoral programs are invited to apply for these positions. Students are selected as space is available.
Additionally, we offer an undergraduate internship opportunity to students through our Intake Department.
Insight Counseling Centers provides ongoing individual and group supervision for post-masters and post-doctoral students who are working on their required hours for state license. Our supervisors are eligible to supervise Pastoral Therapists, Clinical Social Workers, Professional Counselors, and Marriage & Family Therapists.
Pastoral Care Specialist Program
In the religious tradition of the care of souls, persons pursuing the designation of Pastoral Care Specialist aspire to a high level of ministry and accountability within their respective ministry contexts as providers of brief, supportive pastoral care and counseling. This 9-month program is offered every other year. The training combines, lecture, ministry experience, peer feedback and professional consultation to provide training in Pastoral Care and short-term counseling. This program is not intended to prepare participants for state license as a therapist, but to help those in places of service to be better prepared to provide care in their individual setting.
CEU Seminars and Workshops
When a month contains an extra (fifth) Friday, our staff has an in-service/Continuing Education program. These workshops are almost always open to the public and focus on a variety of issues, clinical theories, pastoral care, community services, or professional practice. Each workshop is designed to be helpful to local clergy, chaplains, counselors, or congregational leaders.
Education for the Community
Life Enrichment Events are workshops offered by our counselors for the educational benefit of your community — congregations, clergy, and other organizations. Every year we update our catalog of available events and facilitators in order to serve the local community’s educational needs.
Our Life Enrichment topics address the concerns and interests of modern life, with its complex challenges. In addition to new programming for congregational membership, we have a section of workshops directed at the needs of Clergy and Staff in the local congregation.
Any of our workshops can be tailored to fit the needs of your group. The facilitator will discuss extra materials needed when Life Enrichment Events are scheduled.
