Master's Internship Training Program

The program is based on the belief that awareness of the self enhances the ability to work effectively with others. The Mental Health Service staff includes licensed professionals and graduate students from the fields of clinical psychology, clinical social work, professional counseling, and psychiatry. All graduate student interns are closely supervised by fully credentialed professionals. All work together to provide quality consultation and treatment for LSU students as well as to provide meaningful training opportunities for mental health interns.

All graduate student interns are closely supervised by fully credentialed professionals. Our interns also receive supervised training in a clinical setting involving individual, group, and couples counseling, intake, and crisis intervention. In addition, interns receive training in program development, outreach skills, and various specialized therapeutic skills involving specific populations and treatment. Many of our training activities focus on the development of the professional use of self. Professional Use of Self is considered the intentional use of one's knowledge, experience, perceptions, and skills in the therapeutic relationship in order to benefit the client.
