Supervision is paramount at The Psychoanalytic Clinic of NJI and our interns will meet
weekly with a clinical supervisor. Interns will perform one on one clinical psychotherapy
with their assigned clients and confer with clinical supervisor and clinic director as needed.
Intern may be called upon to assist in outreach or prep for institute functions such as
conferences and symposiums. Most of our interns will have somewhere between 7-11 clients
in their workload at a given time. We are a psychoanalytic clinic and it is important that
interns have the willingness to think analytically. That being said, we encourage the student
to use what they know and use all modalities in order to meet the client’s needs. This
internship is ideal for driven students who would like to work towards going into private
practice. This is an in-person assignment. During heightened COVID periods we will make
virtual an option and consider this experience part of the education of actually being in
private practice. PPE (masks, disinfectant, hand sanitizer) are supplied.
