Therapy Center of Philadelphia offers a robust clinical internship program to students in their final year of Masters level training. The position is acquired through interview and the selection process can be highly competitive.
Student interns are expected to provide weekly individual or couples therapy to the cases assigned to them with the possibility of co-facilitating a group. Typically, interns work 15 to 20 hours per week—ten of which will be face-to-face therapy. Students also gain experience assisting with the intake process, conducted both phone screenings and intake interviews.
We do ask that interns have some evening or weekend availability. Student interns may also be asked to assist staff with other projects, such as helping to update referral resources, conducting research, doing outreach, attending community events, coordinating workshops, etc. All interns are matched with a clinical supervisor, who will meet with them for an hour on a weekly basis to support the student around building their clinical skills. Interns are also expected to attend all group supervisions with other students and staff therapists.
The internship program is designed for students to receive a great deal of support while at TCP. Due to the nature of our work, we seek intern applicants with some clinical experience. We also seek interns who will embrace our feminist roots, as well as our ongoing work around gender and racial equity and justice.
