Graduate Training Opportunities

The Counseling Center at NC State University offers comprehensive training opportunities for emerging mental health professionals.  Our training programs are designed to prepare ethical and multiculturally affirming professionals.  We believe that supervised practical training plays an essential role in the development of new professionals and are excited to be a part of that process. We provide training to graduate students and recent graduates from diverse disciplines each year.  We strive to create a training community at the Counseling Center that reflects our multidisciplinary staff and the university and mental health fields at large.

The foundation of our training philosophy is experiential learning supported by supervision, mentoring, seminars and knowledge of the mental health services theory and practices of counseling, psychology, and social work.

Trainees and staff join in our training mission which values and respects collaboration, teamwork, self-awareness, and openness to learning. Self-reflection, introspection, constructive feedback, and interpersonal dialogue are highly valued aspects of our training.

Our staff includes clinical psychologists, counseling psychologists, clinical social workers, licensed professional counselors, and psychiatrists.  We work from diverse theoretical approaches that enrich our training climate with a focus on developmental issues and working within a time-limited model of clinical practice.  Each trainee becomes a valued member of the Counseling Center team and gain clinical experience providing individual and group counseling, crisis assessment, consultation, and outreach services.
