Practicum and Associate-ship

Within our programs, we invite you to begin, continue on, or return to the journey of finding your inner truth. We encourage you to live from that truth with love, both for yourself and others. We invite all participants at PTI into a community where each seeks to fulfill his potential through participation with others.

We encourage you to develop an attitude of unconditional fascination for your work and for the human beings you treat. Within the frame of respect both for the client and for Self, each student is encouraged to develop his/her own therapeutic style.

Inviting, following, and working with process is also taught and practiced. We teach a variety of therapeutic enactments, how to work in various mediums, and how to integrate the numerous counseling models into a style of psychotherapy you can understand, own, and use effectively. At PTI we invite clients, students, colleagues, and ourselves to adopt a life direction of self-empowerment.

You will also be trained in the clinical skills of this profession, including appropriate assessment and diagnosis, goals, and interventions. You will be introduced to the concepts of treatment plans, appropriate referrals, and crisis intervention. Learning to address legal and ethical issues is an ongoing part of this program.

Students enroll in the training program because they want to expand their sense of being and doing as therapists. Although one can use this program as a practicum, it is separate from your Masters Degree program.

Group Supervision: The group experience is the preferred approach to supervision at PTI for trainees and interns.  As a rule, we do not provide individual supervision.

Emergency Supervision: If you need extra supervision, are under stress, or are confronted by an emergency, an individual supervisor can be immediately available to you.

Tuesdays | 4:00 – 6:00
