You're the Future of Mental Health

It's our mission to provide outstanding training for the next generation of mental health professionals. Each semester, we invite externs from various types of academic programs (clinical and counseling psychology, counseling, social work, and psychiatry) from within and outside the University of Arizona to join the CAPS Training Program.

The CAPS Training Experience

Our externs work alongside licensed staff serving students in our vibrant, diverse, fast-paced, interdisciplinary university counseling center. Clinical externs receive training across a variety of modalities, including individual and group therapy, psychoeducational workshops, initial visits, outreach, and more.

CAPS also offers Advocacy Training available with our Survivor Advocates team.
