Clinical Supervision, Practicum/Internship Opportunities

For new graduates or affiliates needing supervision, we offer supervision and training services qualifying the supervisee to earn hours toward state licensure as a psychologist, mental health counselor or social worker.

BHNW approved supervisors and their experience providing supervision are:  Richard Packard, Ph.D. (14 years), Brian Judd, Ph.D. (6 years), and Marlaina Anderson, MA (3 years).  In addition to general clinical practice, each have areas of specific interest.  Feel free to contact us for more information as to who would be a good match for you.  You may also request our CVs.  Supervision usually involves a combination of individual and group supervision.

(For BCIA Supervision with Dr. West, please see separate page on BCIA mentoring.)

Practicum Students/Internship Opportunities

Many graduate training programs require a proportion of credit hours be spent providing supervised clinical services.  These practicum experiences are an excellent way for the professional-in-training to become familiar with the “real life” of a professional clinician.  Because our work is strongly grounded in neuroscience in addition to conventional psychological and mental health foundations, the successful practicum applicant will have had appropriate coursework completed (neuroanatomy/physiology, physiological/neurological bases of behavior, statistics, behavioral treatment methods, introduction to clinical methods or similar courses).

Internships are intended to be an intense, immersive opportunity to learn clinical techniques, apply theory to practice, conduct research, and participate in advanced training.  For doctoral psychology students, we follow the APPIC guidelines and Washington State Examining Board of Psychology requirements as necessary for meeting the individual’s training and practice needs.  Interns are expected to be full-time and may involve work in more than one location.
