The Assistant Director/Training Director will be expected to provide considerable leadership to a dynamic Counseling Center staff that is committed to serving a diverse student body of over 20,000 undergraduate and graduate students.

As Training Director, this individual is expected to demonstrate a solid commitment to insuring the high quality of training afforded to the Center’s 7-15 interns, graduate assistants and practicum students. In this capacity, the Training Director shall assume primary administrative responsibility for all facets of the Center’s APA-approved pre-doctoral internship program and provide umbrella oversight to other Center training programs (e.g., training of graduate students from the Clinical Psychology and Mental Health Counseling programs at the University). In fulfilling such responsibilities, the Training Director shall demonstrate both a passion and a vision for the training of future mental health practitioners, and shall work closely with colleagues in coordinating different elements of this training including our strong commitment to training multiculturally competent mental health professionals. Affiliated with APPIC, the Center’s pre-doctoral internship is now in its seventh year and received the maximum 7-year accreditation from the American Psychological Association in 2008. The pre-doctoral internship was designed with a strong commitment to diversity as well as an emphasis on the development of psychologists who engage in reflective practice and life-long learning. The Training Director will construct evaluative methods and processes for assessing the quality of programs and trainers, and spearhead the development and implementation of recruitment and selection processes for trainees. In addition to the pre-doctoral interns, trainees include doctoral students from BGSU’s well-established, APA-accredited clinical psychology program as well as master’s level students from mental-health counseling. Please see the Center’s webpage for more information about its supportive and challenging training philosophy and basic values.

The Assistant Director may also be asked to provide administrative and/or clinical supervision to part-time staff.
As a Staff Psychologist, this individual will also provide individual, couples, and group psychotherapy to students.
