Information for Students


The Center employs undergraduate students on a part-time basis as counselors during the academic year and in the summer in the PATHS program. Counselors in these programs are frequently students in the social sciences. Internships are available on a limited basis, and can be taken for credit through arrangements with other higher educational institutions.


Opportunities and funding support are available for Ph.D. candidates and post-doctoral fellows in the University of Rochester Department of Clinical and Social Sciences in Psychology who work at the Center. In addition to pursuing their own scholarly work, students in these positions are encouraged to participate in clinical and research activities of the Center. Internships in local social work and mental health counseling programs are also available for students.

Training is offered for interns in a range of evidence-based therapeutic models (e.g., Child Parent Psychotherapy, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, and Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy). Comprehensive individual and group based supervision is provided to ensure therapeutic effectiveness and efficacy, and professional growth.
