For 2005 - 2006

Program Description: The state of Connecticut's Department of Children and Families has received funding from the Byrne Foundation to sponsor an internship program for graduate students in counseling-related programs who are interested in being trained in evidence-based in-home models of adolescent and family therapy. Home-based models that are represented include: Functional Family Therapy (FFT), Multi-systemic Family Therapy (MST), and Multi-Dimensional

Family Therapy (MDFT). A significant amount of scientific evidence is available that supports the efficacy of treating children, adolescents and their families in their homes. The use of these state-of-the-art approaches to treating families is rapidly expanding throughout Connecticut.

Position Description: Byrne-funded In-Home Family Therapist Interns will be trained in one of three models of intensive in-home family therapy for children and adolescents (FFT, MST, MDFT). Interns will develop in-home therapy skills through supervision, shadowing an experienced in-home family therapist, and collaborating in the treatment process before gradually taking on primary therapeutic responsibility for a caseload of families as part of an in-home family therapy team. Therapist interns will travel to client's homes to provide or participate in the treatment. Interns will be supervised and supported by their clinical supervisor and fellow members of the therapy team. Many positions require interns to work when families are available to meet with them, including late-afternoons, evenings and on weekends if necessary. Interns will learn to function as part of a team to coordinate the client and family treatment with external influences and community services, such as the school and juvenile justice systems, neighborhood environment, and adolescent's peers.

Qualifications: The internship program will give priority consideration to candidates who meet the qualifications listed below.

· Graduate student in Master's or Doctoral programs in social work, marriage and family therapy, psychology, or counseling

· Previous clinical experience (ideally with youth and families)

· Training in systems oriented family therapy (ideally structural and/or strategic family therapy)

· Transportation and a valid driver's license are required

· Available to work multiple evenings per week

· Desire and willingness to see families in their homes

· Willingness to work with the people, systems and agencies that affect the child, including schools, juvenile justice, peers, family and neighborhood

Locations & In-Home Models: Byrne-supported internship opportunities are currently limited to the FFT, MST and MDFT in-home models. Byrne funded internships are available with in-home family treatment providers throughout Connecticut.

Hours and schedule: Schedules will be determined by the providers and programs supervising the interns and the requirements of the intern's academic program, however, it is anticipated that intern's will work 20 hours per week.

Number of Internships: We expect 10 internship positions will be funded for 2005 - 2006.

Stipend, mileage reimbursement & cell phone: Interns will be paid a stipend totaling $3,600 each for their internship. Funds will be distributed monthly. Limited reimbursement for travel to and from client's homes will be provided. Cell phones will be provided to interns to use for their clinical work.

Application Deadline: February 15, 2005

Application & Questions: If you would like an application or if you have any questions about the internship program, contact Jim Shaul, at or 860.704.6307.
