Clinical Internship

Thank you for your interest in being an intern at the Montgomery County Women’s Center. See below for some information about our program and the requirements for it.

  • All of our interns must come from an accredited college or university, and be a second year student in a Counseling or Social Work program. We are affiliated with a number of educational institutions, but if we are not affiliated with your school, we will go through the process and paperwork of doing so.
  • All students interested in being an intern at our agency must fill out an intern or volunteer application, (on our website) prior to being considered for an internship at our agency. A background check will be done on each candidate.
  • We will set up a time to get together for an interview and discuss the program, your qualifications and answer any questions that we each may have.
  • The hours at our counseling office are M,T,W,Th from 8:00am – 8:00 pm and F 8:00am – 5:00pm. All interns must be available one-two evenings for groups or later clients. We do not have weekend hours- I realize that this will limit some of you in terms of being able to intern with us. I am sorry for that. Most interns are here 16-24 hours/week.
  • We have group supervision on Thursday @10:00 am – 11:00 am (everyone must attend this). This is in most of the contracts that we have with your schools. We also will have 1 hour each week of individual supervision, we will set up a time for that when we do schedules.
  • Our staff meetings are on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month @ 12:00pm. We have speakers, go over any agency changes that impact us, and do a clinical staffing on some of our more challenging cases. While this is not mandatory (bc of class schedules), it is highly recommended. If you do not have classes, there is an expectation that you will attend.
  • If you are accepted as an intern, you MUST go to an OAG training prior to beginning the internship. We offer this at our agency, it is usually on 5 Mondays, all in a row, hours are from 8am – 5pm. If these hours do not work for you, there are other agencies that offer the training at different times and days. HAWC is one of these agencies, there are others. You must bring the certificate that you will receive upon completion of the course, so we may add it to your file.
  • We will have a brief orientation at the beginning of your internship-we will go over policies, paperwork, etc

Our program is strictly clinical in nature. As an intern here, you will carry a caseload of 10+ clients each week, you will go to the shelter for 4-6 hours one day/week (usually during your first semester with us), and you will co-facilitate one of our groups.

You will be responsible for doing your own paperwork and getting it done promptly. You may be asked to research a particular issue that one of your clients is dealing with. You will also be asked to train on our front desk-everyone in our office must be able to step in and answer phone, greet clients, log appropriate information. That being said, many interns will never have to answer the phone, etc. However, if the receptionist is gone from her desk, we all pitch in to cover.

In group supervision, we have our interns do some presentations for the other interns and myself-these can include case diagnosis, different theories, and interns will also do a family of origin presentation during your tenure here.
