The Bridge is a human service agency that provides counseling services to people facing challenges. Master's-Level internships are designed to provide students with a more intensive experience in milieu treatment, individual therapy, family therapy and group therapy, clinical consultation, treatment planning, clinical documentation, individual and group clinical supervision, crisis intervention, case management, and collaboration with the greater mental health provider system. A minimum of 12 hours per week for 9 months is expected for Master’s-Level placements.
In addition, due to the implementation of Evidence-Based Practice models throughout the agency, students wishing to focus on a specific model of treatment are able to do so. These include Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Illness Management and Recovery, Supported Employment, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Individuals with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Wraparound.
Students will be provided supervision based on the requirements of their degree program. Supervision will be provided in both one-to-one and group formats.
The Bridge offers licensed supervisors with extensive experience and advanced degrees including MSW and Counseling Psychology. In addition, LMHC or LCSW licensed supervision may be provided.
Each intern will develop an Internship Training Plan with their primary supervisor that will be reviewed at regular intervals throughout the training placement.
Evaluations will be provided for each student as required by the academic institution.
The Bridge provides agency orientation, professional development, and advanced clinical trainings. In addition, all students are invited to attend workshops offered by our Training Institute.
Students will participate in structured learning activities throughout their placement. They may attend professional development trainings offered to all Bridge employees, as well as Evidence Based Practice training series.
