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.

Trainees can expect to see a combination of telehealth and in-person clients.  We utlize a hybrid format for individual and group supervision, with some occurring via teleconference and others on site at the Claret Center.

Applications will be accepted for the 2024-25 training year beginning January 26, 2024. Please send a cover letter, CV, transcript, and three letters of reference to Angela Paviglianiti at angelap@claretcenter.org. Training year begins in August.
