Internship Opportunity Class PSY 4035- Dr. Harvey Barocas:
This course is designed to introduce students to community psychological services. Students are given the opportunity to supplement their classroom experience and to work under supervision in a variety of field placements, including psychiatric hospitals, day care centers, geriatric facilities, rehabilitation centers, agencies serving physically and/or mentally handicapped, recreational facilities, community mental health centers, drug and alcohol programs, correctional facilities, and outreach projects. All students will devote four hours per week to their field placement and also participate in a weekly one-hour seminar at the College. This weekly seminar will be the focal point for bridging the gap between theoretical material and field work experiences.
