    Masters-Level Graduate Internship

    *** Masters/PsyD level internships have been filled; we are no longer accepting application for this internship program for the 2024-2025 school year. ***

    Our Masters-Level Graduate Clinical Psychology Internship Program is open to second-year masters students studying Social Work, Clinical Counseling, or Psychology.

    MBC is a member of the ACEPT and follows the application timeline.

    Mind Body Co-op requires a 10-month internship, August through May which will follow hour requirements of school requirements. We do not provide partial-year internships. Graduate interns are required to satisfy the graduate program’s clinical requirements with benchmark evaluations throughout the internship.

    We believe in providing each student with as varied an experience as possible. Graduate interns engage in Mind Body Co-op activities which may include: therapy with individuals and couples, co-facilitating groups, program development, individual and group supervision, outreach, and administrative activities. Interns work with a largely adult client population and are unlikely to see individuals under the age of 20 years old. The practice provides client referrals so we assist interns in filling their caseload as is appropriate. In addition, we have a full administrative team, so you will receive ample help in anything related to practice management. For in-person sessions, we have an office located downtown on Michigan Avenue and a second office in the Lakeview neighborhood, both conveniently located near public transportation.

    Qualifications

    • You have a flexible schedule, with availability on either Tuesday or Thursday afternoons for clinical supervision, and evenings and/or Saturdays for client sessions. While we have had interns who have completed the program while working part or even full-time, we expect your commitment to Mind Body Co-op to be prioritized.
    • You conduct yourself with maturity and are self-directive.
    • You have a willingness and passion to engage in self-work as it relates to personal and professional development.
    • You have excellent oral and written skills.
    • You live in Chicago or the Chicagoland area for in-person sessions
    • You are committed to the underlying philosophical values of Mind Body Co-op
    • You have previous clinical experience providing therapy, preferred
