The Counseling and Psychological Services Center (CPSC) offers training options for graduate and undergraduate students. We welcome applications each spring for placements during the following academic year.
CPSC offers Masters-level internships for graduate students in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Social Work, or Marriage and Family Therapy programs.
CPSC offers field placement opportunities for students in the Child and Family Studies, Health Promotion and Human Performance, and Psychology Departments. Field placement students are responsible for developing and delivering outreach programming to the campus community during the academic year.
CPSC is pleased to accept applications for doctoral practicum trainees on a rolling basis to fill positions as they are available. Start and end dates are negotiable, with a preference for work to be completed during fall and spring semesters.
CPSC is in the process of formalizing its training program for nurse practitioners. At this time we are not accepting applications. We anticipate accepting applications for training in the 2020-2021 academic year.
Faculty, Staff & Students
More than 40,000 Americans die by suicide each year. Suicide is the 8th leading cause of death in Utah. Within just the past 12 months, more than 10% of WSU students have seriously considered suicide, and 2% have made an attempt. Yet 90% of people in suicidal crisis will give some kind of warning … and you can help save a life. This presentation will teach you how to recognize the verbal, situational, and behavioral clues to suicide; how to ask a person if they are in suicidal crisis; how to persuade a suicidal person to seek help; and how to make referrals for treatments that can help.
For questions about the training program, please contact the Training Director, Juancarlos Santisteban, LMFT, by calling 801-626-6406.
