The Counseling & Accessibility Services Externship Program at LIM College is designed for doctoral level students in psychology, counseling or social work who are entering their second or third year of graduate coursework. Students entering their first year of graduate study may be considered if they have previous related experience. Counseling externs participate alongside senior staff in all ongoing counseling and wellness services and activities and are responsible for intake/assessment, crisis intervention, individual, couple and group counseling, outreach activities and programming, and consultation to faculty and staff. Intensive supervision is provided by a Licensed Psychologist and careful consideration is given to ensure the diversity of clinical experience to further expand the intern’s clinical and counseling skills.
LIM College is devoted exclusively to the business of fashion, and provides students with a unique combination of strong academics and extensive hands-on experience to prepare them for successful careers. LIM College’s Office of Counseling & Accessibility Services is dedicated to promoting the growth and healthful functioning of LIM College students, whether through direct provision of psychotherapeutic service and support or through consultative efforts to supplement and enhance the success of other facilitating settings in the college community. The mission of the Counseling Externship Program is to help prepare professional therapists who are self-aware, equipped with a range of theoretical knowledge and clinical skills so they can implement thoughtful, creative intervention strategies to work through longstanding problems.
