"My internship placement through MHP was with the day treatment programs at Halcyon Middle High School and Sanchez Elementary. I gained clinical experience working with school aged children and their families. I also gained systems experience by collaborating with BVSD staff. Also, specific to my site, I received individual and group supervision from therapists with decades of experience. My supervisor seemed to always have time for me despite her role as director of both day treatment programs. My internship experience with MHP is highlighted by the amount of support I received, not only from day treatment staff, but also from the center as whole. As an intern, I received training in Solution Focused Brief Therapy, and participated in scientific article review groups and special topic discussions lead by several of the center’s clinicians and doctors, as well as outside experts. I am very pleased with my internship experience and even more pleased that it lead me to a full-time job immediately following graduation!"
