Practicum Training Rotations

The SCC offers practicum students the opportunity to participate in one, or more, of the following rotations while completing a practicum here. A training rotation is optional; if a student is interested, s/he may request to participate in one of the below rotations.

The minimum time commitment to a practicum at the SCC is 14.5 hours which does include 2 administrative hours. Please note that an additional 1-2 hours may be needed to complete the appropriate paperwork.  This is particularly true early on in the semester and will likely decrease as you become more familiar with SCC procedures and requirements. Be aware that choosing to do one of our rotations will likely further increase your weekly hours with an additional 1-2 hours.  Below are the required activites/meetings involved in practicum placement at the SCC.

Please note, those who decide to do the group rotation will have to attend a one day training seminar that pertains to group therapy at the SCC specifically.

Outreach Presentations:

Currently under revision-please check with practicum coordinator if you have an interest in this rotation. Thank you.

Group Therapy: 

As a practicum student you have the opportunity to get involved with our group therapy program, which has become rather popular.  During your first semester here you can participate as a process observer and during your second semester you can, with the endorsement of your group leaders from your first semester, co-lead a group. 

Please note, those who decide to do the group rotation will have to attend a one day training seminar that pertains to group therapy at the SCC specifically.

Relationship Enhancement Center (REC) (Spring Semester Only):

The REC provides a special focus on couples' therapy in a unique setting with live supervision. This is a rich opportunity to develop your skills as a couples’ therapist.  Please note that this rotation takes place in the Spring semester only and may not be offered every Spring semester.
