Intern training began at the Counseling Center in 1969 when doctoral students from the Department of Counseling Psychology were recruited to work in the center. Our program has evolved to provide training for master's and doctoral students at Ball State University and to host an APA accredited doctoral internship for doctoral students from programs across the United States.
Our trainees are intricately involved in the service aspects of our center. Trainees see individual clients, help facilitate group counseling and work on our outreach teams. Trainees are supervised by the HSPP staff working in our center. (HSPP stands for Health Service Provider in Psychology.)
Our training programs incorporate the theoretical and research foundations of practice and integrate multicultural knowledge and experience. While working from a developmental/mentoring model, staff members are able to assess the needs of different trainees, to assist them in building their clinical skills and to mentor them into the profession.
