Academic School Year: Fall 2015-Spring 2016
The Alcohol and Drug Education Program is currently accepting internship applications for the Fall 2015-Spring 2016 academic year. Internships are available for Boston College Lynch School of Education Mental Health Counseling Psychology students and Boston College Graduate School of Social Work students. All internships are unpaid and are reserved for students who require placements for their graduate programs.
The Alcohol and Drug Education Program internship may be a good fit for a Graduate Student who:
- Is interested in working with the undergraduate college student population addressing substance abuse and general health and wellness
- Has an interest in gaining clinical experience addressing substance abuse with cognitively high functioning clients with low to moderate psychopathology
- Draws satisfaction from helping young adults with considerable personal potential improve self-efficacy, self-esteem and life performance
- May benefit from implementing individual and group programs that are evidence based, highly structured, and utilize motivational interviewing techniques, following a harm reduction approach
Major responsibilities include:
- Provide brief individual counseling to Boston College undergraduate students referred through the conduct system using the BASICS (Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students) program.
- Co-facilitating three 90-minute group meetings per semester for 3-8 undergraduate students referred through the conduct system.
- Participating in campus wide programming and community outreach
We will begin interviewing qualified candidates in early March. Interested candidates are welcome to email a resume and cover letter to Lindsay Gibson, NapierLi@Bc.edu. Selected interns will begin training during late August.
