For several years Nisar has offered itself to graduate programs in social work, counseling, and psychology as a location for graduate students to complete their internships.
At Nisar, our interns typically do the work of a BHT. They provide one-to-one interventions that have been provided for them by a master’s-level staff member. In this way, inters develop meaningful skills in the community and hone these therapeutic skills in a one-on-one session with a child and their family.
At Nisar, we pay our interns a competitive wage for the hours that they spend in the field. In addition to that, we offer our interns opportunities to shadow more senior clinicians, attending MCO and State Meetings, and participate in group supervision for our BC/MT staff.
The goal of our internship program at Nisar is to show graduate students a path they can follow from their graduate-level education to master-level wok all the way to their own outpatient practice.
Nisar has established internship relationships with The University of Pittsburgh, Duquesne University, Carlow College, Catham University, Edinboro University, the University of Denver, and several other schools.
