As one of our graduate students who attended said:
I had the opportunity to talk to professionals who helped me understand the realities of their work, the structure of their companies and the critical role of communication in their organizations. It was great information that can be used when looking for an internship or a full time position, and a real learning experience attended by curious students, great facilitators and insightful alumnae.

KIP THERAPY INFO SESSION, OCTOBER 3, 2019
Kip Therapy has at their core philosophy – “the value of the therapeutic relationship in achieving clinical success - is reflected in our mission to describe, measure, and evaluate the therapeutic relationship in our practice, training, and research”. They provide unique opportunities for MHC graduate students to receive intensive clinical experience and supervision as part of an internship or practicum. They also have a clinical fellowship and mental health counseling (MHC-LP) programs to accrue hours for New York State clinical licensure - post graduation.
The KIP event was very informative led by
Negar Morshedian and James Robinson; I learned about the different populations that KIP works with. In addition, I found the information shared about how and when to apply foR he practicum, internships and fellowships helpful. I also loved the fact that KIP offers free continuous training.
