TBCC demonstrates its commitment to clinical education through its internship program which aims to develop and sharpen core therapeutic competencies with our 3 Essential Community Practices (ECP) of Restorative Justice, Racial Equity, & Trauma Informed Practice.
Our training program integrates these practices into our training curriculum. The core of our program involves embedded clinical work that occurs within systems and organizations working directly and indirectly with Youth of Color. Interns will have the opportunity to learn macro skills in working within systems as well as clinical skills for one to one clinical work with youth and youth workers. Clinical components include but are not limited to: 1:1 counseling; milieu-based support; group facilitation; and restorative justice circle practice.
Training components will include but are not limited to: individual & group clinical supervision focused on individual clinical work; training in the integration of psychology and spirituality; tracking of client outcomes; training in 3 ECP’s; and group supervision/training in systems-based work. Additionally, interns are encouraged to explore and integrate various therapeutic orientations involved in providing services to youth and youth workers.
Given that we work with populations whose schedules are governed by the Boston Public School calendar, interns are expected to begin in September and end in June, at least a week after the Boston Public School calendar ends for the summer.
While it is possible and at times necessary to arrange for the internship to start or end during the summer months, most interns will have a September start date. Interns typically work 22-24 hours per week. Wednesday is a required working day; remaining hours may be spread from Monday-Friday. Interns are required to keep at least 3-4 hours available (5:00pm to 8:00pm) on weekday evenings where they can meet with clients in our offices.
Applications are due January 7th, 2019. To apply, submit your resume and application online, here.
