Clinic Practicum Student

Our Clinical Psychology Practicum experience is designed for highly motivated students who are studying psychology at university and/or in the process of applying to graduate school.

We offer practicum training to students at our San Francisco and Peninsula studios.

The commitment is 5-10 hours per week for 8-12 months. Practicum students engage in a variety of clinical activities. They observe and assist our clinicians and therapists during social emotional classes. They may observe and assist during assessment and treatment activities. Trainees may opt to attend didactics and group supervision with staff. Trainees participate in program evaluation, community outreach, and quality improvement projects at Seesaw.
