Family Service Counseling and Community Resource Center (FSCC) collaborates with local universities including John F. Kennedy University, Holy Names University, Cal State East Bay and the University of San Francisco to provide excellent field placement supervision and experience for their Trainees.
FSCC complies with regulations required by the California Board of Behavioral Science to provide thorough supervision and experience for Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) Interns who are earning the 3000 hours post-masters experience for licensure, and Masters of Social Workers (MSW) Interns who are earning the 3200 hours post-masters experience for licensure.
By providing respectful and professional clinical supervision and experience for local Interns/Trainees, FSCC hopes to build strong, dedicated counseling professionals who will serve our community in the years to come.
Trainees and Interns are assigned a Clinical Supervisor who is an experienced Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), or Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) on staff at FSCC. This supervisor oversees all of the Trainee/Intern’s direct service to clients. They meet weekly to discuss the Trainee/Intern’s cases and to continuously develop their skills as a therapist.
In addition to the weekly one-to-one clinical supervision, FSCC also offers a weekly two-hour Clinical Supervision Group. Interns/Trainees share challenges and grow with feedback from each other and from an experienced LMFT Clinical Supervisor.
Once per month, FSCC presents a two-hour didactic workshop for Interns/Trainees taught by community professionals or FSCC clinical staff. These presentations focus on various pertinent topics such as working with adolescents, grief work, and couples counseling.
