Master's Counseling Practicum

Master’s Counseling Practicum/Internship sites provide opportunities for students to engage in clinical/counseling activities under supervision.

Potential clinical sites need to have an independently licensed clinician at the Master’s level or higher (LMFT, LCSW, LCPC, or psychologist) to provide supervision.  Master’s students engage in direct service activities for at least 1/3 of the time they are at the site, for a 9-12 month placement. The practicum must be a minimum of 700 hours total. Direct service can be individual, family, couples, or group counseling or psychotherapy, as well as intake assessment and psycho-educational groups. One hour of individual and one hour of group supervision is required each week.

Master’s counseling specializations are offered at Adler with specific interests such as organizational work, forensics, marriage and family, etc.
