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.

Clinical Supervision

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

Workshops are offered by our counselors for the educational benefit of your community — congregations and other organizations. Workshop topics address the concerns and interests of modern life, with its complex challenges. Any of our workshops can be tailored to fit the needs of your group. The facilitator will discuss extra materials needed when workshops are scheduled. If you are interested in scheduling a workshop for your group, please contact us.

“My time as a master’s intern at Insight Counseling Centers was a phenomenal experience. The first thing that stood out to me was the professional community that the other counselors, supervisors, and staff created. The second thing that stood out is the development opportunities provided by Insight.

The group and individual supervision that I received was instrumental in my development as a counselor. I was given the space to explore who I am as a counselor, as well as the guidance to improve my clinical skills. The group case consultation gave me the both the opportunity to learn from others with various clinical backgrounds and experience, as well as the challenge to present my own cases and accept feedback and instruction.

During the second semester of internship, my husband got a job out of state. Even though my school gave me the option to find an internship in the other state, I decided to stay in Tennessee to finish my internship at Insight. I knew that I wouldn’t get the same experience anywhere else. At Insight, I found a supportive community, which is something all new clinicians need but rarely get. I am forever grateful for the opportunity to intern at Insight and to be a part of the important work Insight does in the community.”

-Krystal LaCoy, 2018 MFT Intern at Insight Counseling Centers

“The supervision in addition to the case presentations and theological reflections have helped me gain a better understanding of the therapeutic process as well as different ways to work with a client. Without you all at Insight, I would have had no idea how to even begin to incorporate spirituality into care, and I thank you all for that learning experience.  I feel that I have been led to this agency and have truly grown as a person, and as a budding therapist because of all of you, and I am grateful for the opportunity you have given me.”

-Aimee Sullivan, 2017 MSW Intern at Insight Counseling Centers
