Thank you for considering FSGV’s Trauma Services for your internship placement!
Our Graduate Internship Program is for folks completing a graduate degree (Masters) in counselling or social work. Our Internship Program supports interns in both their personal and professional growth. The internship program is an exciting opportunity for interns to refine their counselling skills, develop new skills and nurture the development of “self” as therapist. We wish interns to continually seek awareness of self and use this information to define strengths and areas for growth. Our Intern Supervisors have diverse training, skills and expertise in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Somatic Experiencing, arts-based approaches, Internal Family Systems, Play Therapy, and EMDR. We approach counselling from a trauma-informed, feminist, intersectional, anti-oppressive lens. We believe that work with clients is relational, that clients are the experts of their own lives and lived experiences, and we are here to walk alongside our clients as they move towards a greater sense of well-being. We offer a workplace culture of respectful consultation and mutual support.
