CSB Student Intern Opportunities


Valued Interns, Volunteers & Advocates logo

Our definition of an “Intern” is an individual completing specific requirements under supervision for academic or credentialing credit. Most CSB internships are unpaid.

Our programs provide internship opportunities for individual and group work in prevention, outpatient, day treatment, outreach/engagement and residential treatment settings. Our internship opportunities change frequently, and most of our internships are unpaid. We interview interns at any time during the calendar year, and students should apply at least 4-6 months prior to the start of their placement, whenever possible.

Currently all practicum and intern positions are full for fall 2014 and spring 2015. Applications for Summer and Fall 2015 practicum and internship placements will be accepted starting January 2, 2015.

The selection process for internships with the CSB is selective, and more interns apply that we are able to accept. Applicants should expect to participate in at least one interview, and provide reference information. When accepted, interns will go through extensive background checks, be screened or tested for tuberculosis, and participate in training and orientation activities. The cost of these requirements will be borne by the CSB.

There are currently several types of training opportunities in the CSB:

At this time, Clinical Psychology Post-Doctoral Residency opportunities are not available.

If you are unsure which program is the appropriate one for which you should apply, contact VIVA Program Manager Cynthia Miller (703-799-2847, TTY 711) to complete an application and VIVA program staff will consider you for an appropriate program.

Please do not apply unless you are taking a class requiring an internship or are completing a professional credential requiring an internship.
