  Internships
 
 

Graduate Level Internships:

The Center regularly provides practicum placements for masters level social work students. Interns will be exposed to a wide range of direct service experience with survivors of sexual assault and catastrophic trauma. Clinical work includes: evaluating sexual assault and trauma impact; provision of individual and group treatment; telephone intake; crisis intervention; hospital outreach; and advocacy. Research placements are also available

Placements are limited (depending on instructor and space availability) and priority is given to second-year UW School of Social Work (MSW) interns. The Center occasionally accepts students from graduate programs in other disciplines whenever possible. Students must demonstrate past experience that shows they can work well as interdisciplinary team members in an intense, demanding setting. Ethnic minority students are strongly encouraged to apply for placement.
