Internship training is carried out in a variety of affiliated member training sites.

The Great Lakes Region of NPTC is composed of six member sites within Indiana. Four County Counseling Center in Logansport, Indiana hosts NPTC’s annual supervisor orientation and training as well as in-person didactic training for interns. In-person didactics will be held on a quarterly basis and will require travel on the part of the interns depending on site placement. Please see map below for an idea of the travel that may be required. All other didactic training will be held virtually on Friday mornings.

For more information about each of these locations, please see the individual site pages in the navigation on the right.

Great Lakes Region Area Information

NPTC – Great Lakes Region member sites are located across central Indiana. Indiana has a cost of living approximately 15% below the national average (see: https://www.bestplaces.net/cost_of_living/state/indiana). More details for the cost of living in this area can be found on our F.A.Q. page under “What is the cost of living?” Go here for more information about the benefits of living in this area!

For those who like to access the “big city,” both Indianapolis and Chicago are within ready driving distance. You can board a train in South Bend and be in downtown Chicago on the “Magnificent Mile” within about an hour.

Fort Wayne and South Bend have many fine restaurants (not to mention some amazing chocolate shops), shopping and concert venues, and professional sporting events.

Brown County, Indiana, Ann Arbor, Michigan and the many charming towns along the Lake Michigan shoreline are great places for a weekend getaway.

For any thrill seekers among us, Sandusky, Ohio, about a three hours drive away, boasts Cedar Point, voted year after year as America’s best roller coaster park. Many festivals take place throughout the area during the summer and fall.
