The University of Wisconsin–Madison’s Mental Health Services offers robust practicum training for graduate students in the fields of counseling psychology, clinical psychology, and social work.
Across all training programs we believe in equity, supporting growth, using science to ground practice, and the power of relationships. As a program we value the diverse cultural and social identities and experiences our trainees bring to our agency and aim to create a safe space for our trainees to learn and grow as they develop their knowledge, skills, and identities as helping professionals. Our motto is learning by doing under caring supervision and training, that values diverse perspectives, collaboration, and advocacy to support personal and professional growth.
The practicum program is designed to help counselors-in-training begin to develop their own counseling style, refine their assessment, conceptualization, and therapeutic skills, and grow in personal and professional areas.
Note: Practicum trainees are not eligible to receive concurrent treatment at MHS during the training year. Students who have sought services at MHS in the past are eligible to participate in the practicum. Additionally, students are eligible to receive services at MHS after their practicum has ended.
