From the Director of Training
Dear Prospective Intern Applicant,
Welcome to the University of St. Thomas Counseling and Psychological Services Web page. I hope that you will enjoy browsing through our materials, and will find all the information you need to help make the decision about whether or not our program would be a good fit with your needs.
Our internship was formally developed in 1992 and fully accredited by APA in 1995. Our staff has a strong commitment to training, diversity and multiculturalism, and our mission is to provide a broad-based sequential and developmental training experience that integrates the art and science of psychology. We believe people learn and work best in a supportive, collegial atmosphere; therefore we provide a nurturing environment in which we expect interns to stretch, take risks and grow into confident, competent, ethical psychologists who are able to empower clients and colleagues. Interns characterize our strengths as providing both excellent supervision and a balanced learning environment in which they can set their goals and objectives. In addition to offering individual therapy, career and group counseling, and psychological assessment, interns enjoy choosing a variety of outreach and consultation activies, and provide supervision to practicum students. Issues of diversity, multiculturalism, and professional ethics permeate all aspects of our work.
All the best to you as you embark on your internship selection process!
Sarah Armstrong, M.B.A., Psy.D., L.P.
