If you’re a graduate student or post-grad who’s passionate about working with LGBT clients and developing expertise in treating LGBT people, we invite you to consider the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Mental Health Services Trainee/Internship Program.
Applications are accepted January through March 20 of each year, for a training program that begins in the fall. A calendar year’s commitment of a minimum of 15 to 20 hours per week (inclusive of supervision) expected.
Psychotherapy services include individual, couples and, infrequently, family therapy. Modalities include crisis intervention, brief treatment, and on-going psychotherapy. Various groups are also offered, specializing in such areas as domestic/intimate partner violence and abuse, anger management, substance abuse recovery, crystal methamphetamine abuse and addiction, sexual compulsivity, men’s and women’s general and intimacy issues, female-to-male and male-to-female transgendered individuals, among others.
Onsite consultations with psychiatrists and medical providers are available, including a monthly, multidisciplinary case conference in which interns/trainees are invited to participate.
We especially encourage bilingual students and people of color to apply.
