Three Wishes is a therapeutic program designed to help preschool children function in traditional environments, whether those environments are home, school, or daycare. This is accomplished through a team approach, with parents as partners. Three Wishes believes that every child has the right to be loved, to be safe, and to learn. Interns at Three Wishes will observe play therapy, family therapy, and assessments. Those in a final placement prior to graduation will conduct therapy. In addition, interns will have the opportunity to coordinate with community partners and participate in family team meetings, IEP planning, and DCS meetings. All activities occur under the guidance of a clinical supervisor.
Qualified applicants will be graduate students in social work or mental health counseling; although, related degrees may be considered. Students are expected to have a basic knowledge of child development and childhood mental health issues.
Interested students will find application instructions in the Graduate Internship Manual. Applications, and supporting material, should be emailed at least eight weeks prior to the expected start date.
Three Wishes will accept applications for those starting an internship May 2020 or later.
