Professionals In Training
The EKU Counseling Center provides an opportunity for graduate students in psychology to advance their training through part-time practicum experiences. The EKUCC views the training program as a vital part of EKUCC services. Practicum students are highly valued and are included in most daily activities within the center. The practicum program has been specifically designed to give trainees a full range of experience found within a comprehensive university counseling center.
Clients Receiving Services From an EKUCC Trainee
Through its support of graduate trainees, the Counseling Center is able to provide services to greater numbers of students. In addition, the energy of growing professionals-in-training promotes an active, diverse environment within the Counseling Center. When an EKU student comes to the Counseling Center for counseling, they may be scheduled to meet with a full-time staff member, a practicum, an intern, or an extern. We will do everything possible to ensure that a good fit is made between the student and counselor. Requests regarding seeing a particular counselor will be honored whenever possible.
