John Carroll University’s Counseling Center provides internship and practicum opportunities for master’s level students from John Carroll’s community counseling program and for students from local universities. The emphasis in this program is on developing the student’s therapeutic skills and familiarizing them with a university counseling setting. The University Counseling Center provides free, confidential, short-term counseling, (approximately 12 sessions), to students currently enrolled at JCU.

We also offer consultation services, workshops, and outreach services to the wider campus community. Interns and practicum students are expected to spend 10-20 hours per week at the Counseling Center and are expected to conduct intakes, provide individual counseling, participate in the planning and facilitation of outreach programs, attend weekly staff meetings or group trainings, and receive individual and group supervision. Additional training opportunities for group counseling and consultation services are also sometimes available.
