The Julianna Poor Memorial Counseling Center is an approved practicum site for several of the universities in the Houston area. We currently have four board-approved supervisors on staff here. Our practicum spots are reserved for those who feel a calling to use their professional training in a Christian ministry environment. During your practicum here, you will have the opportunity to see multiple facets of a counseling center. Your time will include some administrative experience, possible research, role-play, exposure to different modalities of counseling, co-therapy, group therapy, individual therapy and supervision. You will also take part in the Soul Care class that is designed to encourage deeper relationships and build spiritual community.
Phase I:Student addresses their own issues in therapy and observe individual, couple, family, play, and group therapy.
Phase II:Student participates in co-facilitation of therapy and support groups.
Phase III:Student begins taking on individual cases.
There is not a set amount of time for each of these phases. If you are interested in applying for a practicum, fill out the Practicum Application and send it back to us. Spots available are dependent on open positions. If there is an open position, we will contact you and set up and interview.
