Community, School, and Clinical Mental Health Counseling
The Chicagoland area provides a wealth of clinical training opportunities for the students in community, school, ande clinical mental health counseling programs. Students receive generalist training but through site selection can begin to acquire population-specific competencies in working with children, adolescents, families, gay/lesbian/bisexual clients, and other groups of individuals. Many of the practicum sites also contain APA-approved internship programs where trainees are provided with rigorous supervision and on-site seminars.
