Practicum Information

Student Internship for 2013/2014

We are no longer accepting practicum applications.  Our next intake of practicum applications shall be March 2014. Thank you to everyone who has expressed interest in completing a practicum placement in our counseling program at Options Community Services.

About Practicum Placements

We are very fortunate to be able to accommodate  practicum students into our three program areas when time and space allows. For students interested in a placement with the  Counselling Services programs, thumb please familiarize yourself with our three areas of  counselling focus: Family Counselling; information pills Education and Counselling” href=””>Suicide Prevention; and Sexual Abuse Counselling.

We have found that most students prefer to work in the Family Counselling program as it offers the most range of issues, pharmacy ages of clientele and is a short-term  counselling program.  The Suicide Prevention program (SPEAC) serves children and youth, is outreach based, and is a short-term counselling program. Students interested in a placement with  SPEAC  must have a vehicle.

Note: Our ability to provide practicum students is contingent upon our capacity to provide clinical supervision, office space and the overall time commitment.

At times, we may be unable to accomodate students.
