Training: Overview

We are excited to offer a comprehensive 6-month training program with two months of theoretical studies and four months of closely supervised clinical practice. Graduates who excel in the program can apply for a 3-month paid internship, potentially leading to full-time employment at our Institute.

Theoretical Training

The initial phase focuses on the principles of Message-Centered Psychology (MCP). Trainees will explore the foundational concepts, understanding emotions as communication tools, and how specific feelings align with perceived realities. The emphasis will be on understanding the aims behind maladaptive behaviors rather than the reasons. Trainees will engage with MCP-based analysis of various real clinical cases, gaining clinical insights and learning practical methods.

Supervised Practice

In this phase, trainees will engage with actual clients under the guidance of a senior supervisor. Supervisors will assist in intake sessions and treatment planning, followed by the trainee conducting individual sessions. Group sessions will be co-led with the supervisor, each reviewed in weekly individual supervision meetings. This practical experience counts towards clinical licensing requirements. Trainees will also participate in group supervision sessions to learn from peer experiences.

Internship and Employment Opportunities

Successful trainees may advance to a paid 3-month internship, continuing patient work under supervision. This may lead to an opportunity for long-term employment with our staff.

Eligibility Requirements

Candidates must hold a Master’s degree in Social Work (LSW) or Psychology with a counseling specialization and respective licensure.

We also accept applications from more experienced professionals with LCSW, PsyD, PhD, or MD qualifications. The program will be customized to align with their specific qualifications and career goals.
