Training Program
Program/Service of : KW Counselling
The training program involves a placement at KW Counselling Services and consists of three entry periods, including orientation, per year. Entry to the training program occurs the first two weeks of September, January, and May. Orientation involves familiarization with the KW Counselling Orientation Manual which outlines the policies and procedures of our agency. In addition, orientation includes introduction to our computer software Caseworks.

Orientation also focuses on enhancing clinical skills of the interns. We offer introduction to the use of common counselling theories such as Brief Narrative, Solution Focused, and Cognitive Behavioural therapies. Interns are introduced to the basic concepts of Couple Therapy and Family Therapy. Interns are oriented to the Walk-In clinic and are expected to become part of the clinic from the beginning of their Practicum. Dyadic and group supervision are provided on a weekly basis; Regular Peer consultations and frequent Training sessions are also part of Intern experience at KWCS. Interns students see 5 – 12 clients per week depending on their University or personal learning goals. Many students participate in various group experiences through Community Solutions and/or S.T.E.A.M. and other psycho-educational groups offered through KWCS.
