Family Transitions currently has two psychologists and two master’s level clinicians that supervise graduate level interns from local universities. Interns will have an opportunity to work with a variety of therapist approaches and style. It is important for potential interns to be aware that the bulk of direct service hours will be accomplished through treating sexual offenders (group work) and supplemented through additional individual sessions, couples, and family work. We conduct treatment during the mornings, afternoons and evenings in addition to some weekend groups. Supervision is accomplished through live, audio and group formats. Family Transitions will meet whatever supervision requirements are needed by specific universities (usually a minimum of one hour individual supervision a week).
Family Transitions values the health and welfare of interns, therefore, it is important for prospective interns to evaluate any possible internal obstacles to working with cases involving sexual abuse. Please discuss any concerns you may have.
In addition to treatment, interns have exposure to testing & assessment. Some of our providers conduct psychosexual evaluations and interns will have an opportunity to learn about personality measures in addition to other psychosexual tools and instruments.
Within the offender population are also several specialty treatment areas at Family Transitions:
- Sex assault groups
- Special need offenders (SMI, DD)
- Female offenders
- DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy)
- Chaperone Treatment: partners & non-partners (family members)
- Adult & child survivors of sexual abuse
Required of all interns is attendance in the Introduction to Sex Offender Treatment (8-week class) on Thursdays from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and participation in biweekly agency meetings (1st & 3rd Thursdays from 1-3 p.m.)
