Strengths of the Training Program:
- The true variance of clinical experiences; one can participate in an outreach for athletes, give a stress management talk to graduate students, and then introduce our services to new students, which is very unique.
- The varying types of process or specific topic support groups/workshops that are offered.
- The true offering of every clinical opportunity in a college setting.
- The different theoretical orientations of the staff (e.g., humanistic, CBT, IFS, etc.).
