A Note About Liability Insurance
While covered by the University's general liability insurance, interns are required to carry their own professional liability insurance coverage, which can be obtained through APA or often a student’s home institution at a reasonable cost.
Interns each have their own private office and are free to decorate and personalize their space. Offices each have a desk, computer, bookshelves, windows, and a space for counseling. Additionally, each intern office is equipped with digital video cameras to record sessions for review by interns and supervisors.
The Counseling Center uses Titanium for scheduling and clinical notes, and all interns have access to Titanium on their computers. Clients complete intake paperwork electronically, allowing intakers to view intake information from their offices prior to going to the waiting room to meet their clients. Additionally, interns have access to campus computing resources through their office computers, including SPSS.
Our front office staff provide excellent clerical support to interns.
