    Practicum Experiences

Practicum students are also able to see clients from diverse cultural backgrounds. Therapeutic modalities include cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and solution-focused therapies.

    IOP and Residential Settings

Bridges helps our clients regain stability and develop skills to better navigate the journey in life that lies ahead. Practicum students will gain therapeutic experience working with individuals with severe and persistent mental illness. These patients often are coming from a hospital setting or trying to prevent hospitalization. Practicum students will receive intensive training in CBT for depression and anxiety and will have the opportunity to participate in weekly psychiatric supervision meetings.

    Northland and its partners also offer intensive outpatient and residential treatment programs for co-occurring disorders. Students have an opportunity to work with patients who have both mental illness and chemical dependency problems. Supervisors for these programs are dually licensed.
