APA Internship Activities

Assessment Services

Assessment is an integral and ongoing part of the counseling and intervention process. In conducting therapy, consultation, and programming, interns learn to determine appropriate ways of assessing a particular client or system and interpreting information obtained through interviews and/or specific assessment instruments.

At CCS, interns receive training in eating concerns assessment and substance use assessment. Training is provided in clinical interviewing around eating &/or body image concerns and substance use concerns, documentation of the assessment information, communication of assessment results to the client and others designated by the client, and integration of the information into subsequent interventions (e.g., therapy, consultation, and referrals).
