Welcome to our training page. FAU Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is at an exciting time of expansion in staff, programming and training. We are a staff dedicated to training the next generation of psychologists and mental health counselors and are committed to providing a broad training experience. Our center has two training programs: the Psychology Doctoral Internship and the Practicum Counselor program.
We use a developmental model where experiences are graded to the level of the trainee and we provide a supportive and challenging environment to facilitate the most productive training year possible. Our staff members vary in their theoretical orientations and are diverse in their background. All of our trainees are exposed to a team that values thoughtful, ethical, culturally sensitive treatment, assessment and campus programming. We value input from all staff members and operate in a respectful environment to facilitate change in our clients and in our organization.
Our trainees are an integral part of the staff and they are treated as young professionals who collaborate and contribute to the Center. We regard training as a program in which all staff takes part. Counseling and Psychological Services has offices on three of FAU’s campuses: Davie, Boca Raton and Jupiter. Practicum counselors are placed in all three of our offices and doctoral interns work primarily on the Boca Raton campus, with the option of work on another campus.
