3/27/17: Hiring is CLOSED for trainees and interns, except for Spanish Speaking trainees or interns. Hiring is OPEN at the Couples Resource Collective where I am the Clinical Supervisor as well.
We are not currently accepting resumes and cover letters along with the answers to the questions below as an application for traineeship/internship into our Volunteer Training Program or our Paid Positions if you meet the qualifications. (All trainees are under the Volunteer Training Program.) Paid positions for interns that qualify are either a commission style wage based on fees collected or $12/hour, whichever is greater.
**Immediate openings for Spanish Speaking Therapists at our Sacramento offices. Great opportunity to start building your Spanish Speaking Practice now. We get lots of Spanish Speaking referrals.**
We currently only have openings available for the Sacramento Area for trainees and/or interns that speak Spanish. There are currently no positions available for our Stockton office.
Hiring will remain open until all positions are filled. The interview will be attending one of our regular group supervisions where we can see how you like the group, how you fit in, and how you participate. You will be asked to bring a sample case presentation, either one you have worked with (changing names for confidentiality) or one you make up, and present it to the group as you would in a real supervision with a question regarding that case that you would have for your supervisor. For Sacramento it will take place at our main location, 3650 Auburn Blvd. Bldg. C #206, Sac 95821. For Stockton, it will take place at 5651 N. Pershing Ave C-6, Stockton, 95207.

More Info on the Position:
This is a Volunteer Training Program for trainees and interns that don't qualify for the paid positions, or a paid position for those interns that do qualify. For either type of position you get to learn what private practice is like, the business side of private practice, hands on training performing psychotherapy with clients, weekly supervision, in-house trainings and workshops, ability to co-facilitate and learn how to run DBT Groups, ability to run any other group you are interested in running, and more. The duties include performing individual, family, couples, or child therapy. Therapists are to maintain a professional atmosphere and uphold all legal and ethical standards. Therapists will conduct assessments, create treatment plans, implement interventions and techniques, and maintain confidential client records. The hours are flexible, however, the main time slots that we serve are evenings and weekends. You are free to be creative with your therapeutic process while discussing with the supervisor. One two-hour group supervision per week is included and mandatory. This is an amazing opportunity for those who have full time jobs to begin learning about private practice and building your clientele all before you are licensed.
Bi/Multi-Lingual is a huge plus.
Phone calls will not be returned.
There are no other positions available at this time.
