What we offer:
Family Outreach is a community-based program that provides FREE counseling services through the volunteer efforts of Master’s Level Counseling Interns from Texas A&M University (Corpus Christi and Kingsville campuses) and local LPC-Interns. In exchange for student services and help, our organization will provide students with intensive supervision and training, as well as direct and indirect client contact.

What to expect:
Through our program, you will be exposed to individual and group counseling, psycho-educational programs, a multitude of reference and training materials, and establish professional relationships with other agencies through collaboration on client needs. Options to audio and video tape individual counseling sessions are also provided in order to better assist your supervisor(s) in addressing your growth areas as a counselor.
As an intern at Family Outreach you will be assigned clients based on your individual interests including individual, couples, play therapy, and family therapy experience. You will also be provided with the opportunity to experience a diverse clientele and a variety of treatment modalities.
Before choosing a practicum site, here are three questions we encourage all interns to ask themselves.
1. At the practicum site I choose, will I obtain the experience and knowledge I need to be confident in my abilities as a counselor?
2. Will I receive the supervision and training needed to better assist me in becoming a counselor?
3. Based on my knowledge and experience I will gain from my practicum site, would I hire myself if I was an employer?
