Throughout this program, students will integrate therapeutic knowledge with the clinical skills needed to work with individual clients. In addition to analyzing a variety of teaching case studies, the primary learning tool will be the clinic experience itself. The hands-on experience during students’ clinical internship in the Natural Care Center will build their practice using a variety of on- and off-site options, as well as individual and group work. Parts of the program will allow students to train at a distance, where they will focus on learning to facilitate group sessions and to understand the factors that influence successful models of practice in community settings. Student clinical interns can expect to develop specialized areas in their practice.
