Former intern testimonials:
“My experience as an intern at the SEC was incredible and unlike any I have had before. The position incorporated hands on experience with the children and feedback and training from the staff. I am thankful for the SEC as this internship has led me to solidify my choice to work with children and adolescents in the future.” – Julia S.
“I went into my internship at SEC not knowing whether my primary academic interest in developmental psychology would translate to a proclivity for clinical work. I was blown away by the amount of hands on experience I was given from my very first day, as the staff included me in the group sessions and provided feedback and support throughout the internship. I believe that the experiences I gained from my internship and subsequent employment at SEC were an invaluable factor in my decision to pursue and admittance to a doctoral program in clinical psychology.” – Claire F.
