Collaborative Case Management (CCM) Team
Trainees are expected to attend the CCM Teams weekly. It is where cases are discussed, reviewed, and at times distributed when clinicians’ caseloads are full. Clinicians use this time to consult about difficult and complex cases and explore referral options.
Meeting with the Practicum Coordinator (Second Semester)
The Training Coordinator meets with the trainees periodically during the semester on an individual basis. This is a time to clarify questions, address problems, and discuss ongoing concerns. It provides an important opportunity to keep lines of communication open between trainees and the Practicum Coordinator.
Trainees are welcome to participate in the continuing education workshops provided at the CWC or in the community.
Although personal therapy is not required of trainees, trainees are strongly encouraged to engage in their own personal therapy while on advanced practicum training program with therapists in the community. The advanced practicum training program year is taxing both personally and professionally; and in times of stress, therapy can be an excellent source of increased awareness and understanding. It can also enhance the therapy that trainees conduct with clients as the trainee sits on the other side of the therapy process. A therapists’ referral list is available for trainees.
