Mental Health Practicum

This practicum offers students in psychology, social work, and marriage and family therapy programs experience in community based mental health, with a strong emphasis on current empirically validated treatment approaches within child and adolescent mental health. The practicum is designed to prepare graduate students via clinical experiences, instruction, and supervision for transition from student to professional within the field of adolescent mental health. Students will develop knowledge of intensive outpatient (IOP) and partial hospitalization programs (PHP) offered at Casa Pacifica within our Camino a Casa program. Students will actively participate in a multi-disciplinary team in the provision of group therapy and collaborative treatment planning including utilization reviews supporting the need for continued mental health treatment needs of children and adolescents and discharge planning.
