Experience Beyond the Classroom
Interns at CSG have the opportunity to take their experience beyond the classroom, working alongside experienced employees and the individuals we serve. We believe in making sure CSG interns are able to be part of the team, and will be able to work on many different aspects of care, such as developing individual goals and plans, side by side learning with clinicians who are making a diagnosis, and providing support to individuals and families.
In addition to gaining experience, internships with CSG focus on developing strategic and on-the-job skills. Interns can learn about different treatment modalities, ethical considerations, and how to navigate the healthcare system. They will also deepen their communication, interpersonal, and problem-solving skills.
Build A Network
Internships are a great way to meet and learn from other students, supervisors, and other mental health professionals, and allow you to build and foster a professional network. The connections you make during your internship often prove to be beneficial into future careers and opportunities.
We believe that students should have the opportunity to explore the many different career options in mental or behavioral health and IDD services. CSG offers many different types of settings to experience, including outpatient, home based, school, residential programs, and rehabilitative services.
