Internships

Fieldwork offers a mixed online/in-person internship for students enrolled in accredited Masters-level programs. Our supervision meets requirements for registration the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors and BC College of Social Workers.

Students provide sessions both online and in-person, the latter out of our office located at the intersection of Main and Broadway in Vancouver. To complete online sessions, interns need to have reliable and predictable access to a quiet, dedicated, and tastefully-decorated space. A quality AV setup, including high-speed internet and good webcam is also required.

Beyond that, you:

  • Have done your own work to such an extent that you can name what’s coming up for you before others can
  • Can hold the sometimes deadly seriousness of our work with the playfulness of knowing that none of us should take ourselves too seriously
  • Know when to deploy something like CBT and when to apply the exquisitely heartfelt and honest
  • See value in ongoing education, formal certification, and comprehensive training, while recognizing that none of these guarantee we are any good at anything
  • Have strong values and beliefs that you constantly question and frequently revise
  • Do not see the world in dichotomies of good/bad, right/wrong, powerful/disempowered but can operate within these as necessary to comply with ethics, law, and the need for safety
  • View “trauma” as a shorthand term that oversimplifies a vast range of human experience.
