The primary goal of the internship at Four County Counseling Center is to guide interns in their development from students to entry-level, professional psychologists. In order to accomplish this, Four County offers two different types of training opportunities: Traditional and IHC Grant Funded. The traditional internship training experience is designed to prepare interns to serve a broad spectrum of individuals in terms of age, cultural, diagnostic, and level of functioning inherent in a rural setting.
While Four County is predominantly rural servicing, we are just a hop, skip, and jump from larger metropolitan areas such as Indianapolis, Lafayette, and Kokomo. Servicing rural populations means be ahead of the curve on telehealth services. When you interview ask us about telepsychology options during your internship year!
