Portland Mental Health and Wellness works in collaboration with George Fox University and Pacific University to provide advanced clinical placements to their doctoral students. Supervision and training is a combination of weekly didactic seminars, group supervision, and individual supervision. This is a primary placement and we expect our trainees to have advanced clinical skills, including the ability to demonstrate interest and curiosity with ambiguity and uncertainty, and be prepared to explore their own process and clinical judgment. As such we are only accept applications from doctoral students and do not accept applications from masters students.
If you are interested in applying for the following academic year we typically start accepting applications in January or February (depending on each programs requirements) for the following year’s practicum placement positions.
