LifeLong Medical Care provides high-quality health and psychosocial services for individuals with limited income and for those who face significant barriers to attaining better health, in a positive, caring environment.
We offer a limited number of onsite integrated behavioral health field placement opportunities for 1st and 2nd year MSW and MFT students in the following areas:
Our MSW/MFT internship program is administered by LifeLong’s Behavioral Health Clinical Director, a very experienced LCSW who has run community based mental health programs, has worked in supportive housing, and has a strong dual-diagnosis mental health background.
The Behavioral Health Clinical Director will orient and onboard the MSW and MFT students, as well as provide weekly group didactic training and supervision during which interns can receive training in various evidenced-based approaches and perform case consultation.
Weekly didactic topics include working with patients with depression and anxiety, personality disorders, motivational interviewing, and CBT. At each site, students will have a site supervisor from whom they receive instruction and support.
Due to limited internship availability, interview slots are reserved for individuals interested in training at LifeLong Medical Care. We appreciate your consideration of this when you apply.
East Bay Community Recovery Project (EBCRP) offers internships for students throughout the year based on availability. Students would participate at EBCRP sites in Oakland in a variety of one-on-one and group interventions related to substance abuse intervention and dual diagnosis mental health consumers. Students are required to intern at least 20 hours per week for 1 year.
