What to Expect

  • Stepped Model: In order to ease students into the therapeutic process, CAPS utilizes a gradual method of exposure. Initially, practicum/intern students observe several sessions conducted by a supervisor with a client. Next, students undertake sessions with a supervisor present in the room to observe and offer subsequent feedback. Finally, students begin meeting with clients individually.
  • Clinical field education within our office exposes practicum/intern students to a variety of direct practice opportunities including:
    • Intake interview
    • Case management
    • Individual psychotherapy
    • Couples and group therapy
    • Educational workshops
    • Diagnostic assessments
    • Related documentation
    • And more.
  • Practicum/Intern student training is led by Dr. James Honeycutt, assisted by licensed supervisors with diverse educational backgrounds. Students will also be working alongside a team of clinicians, support staff, and fellow students who represent a range of disciplines, cultures, and specialties.
