DIRECT CLINICAL EXPERIENCE IS THE CENTERPIECE OF A CHANGE INC. APPRENTICESHIP

 

Our apprentices are paid for supervised clinical work, while:

  • Participating in Certified Addiction Counselor (CAC) and/or Domestic Violence (DV) certification classes, earning required credits

  • Facilitating individual sessions and group therapy for court ordered clients

  • Attending group and individual supervision

 

As an apprentice, students enrolled in our program accumulate required hours for CAC II, CAC III, LAC and/or toward a DV Approved Provider Certification.

 

A first year post-graduate apprentice will learn under a licensed trained professional the needed skills of working with forensic court-ordered individuals, in a supportive environment with a focus on ethics and quality of care.
