Post-MSW Fellowship Opportunity at CAPS
Posted: January 27, 2010
The University of Michigan Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is offering a full-time, paid, two-year Post-MSW Fellowship for the 2010-2012 academic years.
Our curriculum provides advanced training and clinical experience in multiculturally sensitive services to university students with a wide range of developmental issues and mental health concerns. Our practitioner-scholar training program offers hands-on experience, complemented by access to and knowledge of relevant social science practice and research. Within the context of our multicultural, multidisciplinary, and multitheoretical setting, our aim is to support entry-level professionals as they get ready for licensure, and to prepare them to move with competence, creativity and flexibility into professional positions in a range of settings, with a focus on counseling center practice. Experiential learning is supported by a variety of supervisory, mentoring, and educational experiences.
Post-MSW Fellows provide service in initial evaluation; individual counseling and psychotherapy (both brief and longer when appropriate); crisis intervention and emergency services; third party consultation; outreach; program development; group interventions (structured, semi-structured or process groups); and, in the second year supervision of MSW Interns. Opportunities are available to conduct assessments of substance use, eating issues, and Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorders. Fellows may also serve on agency committees.
In addition, Post-MSW Fellows will choose an area of specialization. Examples include but are not limited to:
1.Administration (e.g. clinical, training, or outreach)
2. Clinical Practice (e.g. mindfulness-based therapies; couples; multiple identities; brief treatment of trauma)
3. Outreach (e.g. to specific campus communities, campus substance abuse network and/or general)
4. Clinical Scholarship/Writing
