Internship Program

Pause for Perspective offers current and cutting edge training for interns that helps them delve into the sacred science of counseling. We prepare our interns to be learners and beginning therapists in the field. Our interns are trained to be nuanced in diagnostics as well as therapeutic techniques. We invite Trainees and Interns who are undergoing Bachelors and Masters in Psychology (with a Counseling Specialization) to apply for the internship program with us. Our internship programs last for one month or three months long.

What to expect from this internship:

  • For the 1st week of Learning program the interns are required to come in from 11 am to 3 pm. After the first week of training individual timings  will be decided according to your requirement.
  • The first week of internship will be an intensive learning program covering necessary skills & approaches for therapy
  • The interns are expected to write a reflection paper about each topic simultaneously. Submission date of these reflection papers will be decided after the particular topic is been covered.
  • After the learning session there will be Role play tests conducted to check on interns learning from the past week after which the training for the brief telephonic intake will be undertaken.
  • Once you do the Brief Telephonic Intake  with the new clients you  sit in with Ms. Aarathi Selvan in the sessions as a Co-therapist (upon receiving permission from the clients).
