CAPS Practicum / Internship Training Opportunities

The CAPS Center offers a variety of practicum and internship training opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students. Utilizing a developmental perspective, expectations and responsibilities will be based on the trainee's current level of education and will increase throughout the semester, commensurate with experience gained while at the CAPS Center. Trainees will gain an appreciation for the promotion of college student mental health as they actively engage in the activities of a counseling center. Questions can be directed to Dr. Curtis Wiseley (cwiseley@misericordia.edu)
