Psychotherapy Training Program

Our eleven-month psychotherapy training has a communal approach in which supervisors and students form a treatment team, optimizing available resources to support healing and personal growth on the part of our trainees and their clients. Trainees see clients, maintain clinical files, collect fees, market their services, and offer psycho-educational programs in a number of Catholic parishes throughout the Chicago area, as well as through the Claret Center, located in Hyde Park.

To ensure personal as well as professional growth over the course of the year, the training program includes an ongoing weekly learning community that includes both individual and group supervision. Supervisors and peers support each other in finding an approach to counseling that maximizes their unique personal style and gifts.

All psychotherapy and supervision sessions are currently conducted using video conferencing, but we anticipate that we will be returning to at least some face to face work at some point in the coming year.

Applications (email only) will be accepted beginning January 29, 2021. Please send a cover letter, CV, transcript, and three letters of reference to Mary Worden, PsyD at claretrecruiting@gmail.com. Training year begins August 1, 2021.
