NCFC INTERNSHIP TRAINEE PRGRAM
The NCFC provides Trainee Internships for Master of Social Work and The Master of Science in Counseling degree program with a specialization in Clinical Mental Health Counselor.
Social Work specialization allows student interns to work with individuals, families, groups, and organizations. The focus of the program is to work with target populations in ways that enable and empower them to participate in the social work change process. The social work program prepares individuals to be agents for change and to work effectively in an increasingly complex, culturally and racially diverse society. Individuals in the program will learn to understand and respond to racism, sexism, homophobia, and other forms of oppression that create and maintain barriers to well-being and participation in society.
MSC/ CCMH specialization provides a needed service to the community through collaboration with agencies and institutions and their personnel and through the provision of continuing counselor education and programming. Students are involved in a variety of educational and clinical activities that prepare them to help their clients to achieve their potential. The program encompasses foundations of counseling and guidance, including theories and their application, with groups and individuals, assessment and evaluation, counseling and consultative relationships, career planning for students, and program development, implementation, and evaluation. The program addresses critical issues facing mental health counselors and offers supervised clinical experiences.
