Psychotherapy Practicum

Our psychotherapy practicum, founded in 1979, offers training and supervision to satisfy professional school and licensing requirements.

Our practicum students benefit from an extremely diverse client population through placement at parishes and schools throughout the Chicagoland area.

Together, supervisors and students form a treatment team, optimizing available resources to support healing and personal growth on the part of our students and their clients.

This program is limited to 5 students per cohort. Each cohort enjoys the supervision of two supervisors. Participants meet one day a week through May.
