Practicum and Internships
As part of their training experience, students enrolled in the Latina/o mental health training program also engage in direct clinical work with the community. Students are placed at local community-based agencies, clinics, and school-based locations where they have the opportunity to provide services to underserved Latinx communities. Aliento has partnered with local agencies that provide our students with opportunities to engage in clinical work with both bilingual and monolingual Spanish- and English-speaking Latinx communities. During their clinical work, students will also be supervised by clinicians who are bilingual Spanish-speaking and who also have knowledge of working with Latinx communities. It is important that our students receive the support they need in order to provide culturally and linguistically responsive services to the community.
