Internship Partners: Become a Site
An internship site must be able to:
- Provide our students with as diverse a clientele as possible. During the 18 to 21 month internship, students will need at least 500 direct client contact hours, 250 of which with couples and/or families.
- Provide individual supervision from a supervisor at least every other week as part of the supervision team. Students are required to have 100 hours of supervision, 50 of which are individual and occur at the internship site.
During supervision, we utilize live observation of sessions as well as review of videotaped sessions. Students need to fulfill these requirements by videotaping their sessions and having access to necessary equipment.
Each internship site will provide an orientation tointerns, acculturating them to paperwork, site policies and procedures. Sites usually send one or more supervisors to attend SPU MFT meetings for site supervisors, and participate in the biannual Internship Day.
