Counseling Services Internship



Counseling Services at Kent State University at Stark invites applications for a clinical internship for the Fall 2023-Spring 2024 semesters for master’s or doctoral students in Clinical Mental Health Counseling programs. The internship is designed for 20 hours per week for 32 weeks (16 weeks each semester) with the possibility of some work between semesters if necessary and/or preferred. (We can accommodate doctoral students in need of practicum hours. Please contact Kelsey to discuss further before applying.) Weekly internship hours may be adjusted depending on the specific needs of the internship program. Duties will consist of providing direct counseling services to clients, administrative duties, and other center-related duties as assigned. Interns will have the opportunity to work with individuals from diverse backgrounds and provide services addressing a variety of mental and emotional disorders. Currently, group counseling hours are not available. Therefore, interns will need to arrange for other group counseling opportunities as required by their program.

Counseling Services at Kent State University at Stark is a clinical counseling center that provides mental health counseling services, crisis support, off-campus referral assistance/linkage, and outreach programming to Stark campus students. The office also provides consultation for faculty/staff regarding student mental health concerns. Counseling Services maintains daytime hours with limited evening hours available. Services are free-of-charge to Kent State  Stark students. The office utilizes EMR software for scheduling and documentation. The internship position is unpaid. Interns are required to maintain Counselor Trainee (CT) status throughout the internship experience.

We will accept applications until Friday, Feb. 10, 2023, at 5 p.m. In-person interviews will take place thereafter. We hope to have the position filled by March 1. Interested individuals should complete the online application and upload a current resume with two (2) professional references for review. At least one of the references should be someone who can speak to the applicant’s clinical abilities (e.g. past practicum instructor, supervisor, counseling faculty). Letters of recommendation are not required but may be requested as the interview process progresses.
