About The Event

Your first step to learning practice

Psychology internships at Morphic Minds are an excellent opportunity to transit smoothly from college to practising therapy independently. The internship gives hands-on exposure to client reviews, case taking, basic assessments and handling clients. The internship manager will facilitate your learning with activities, assignments, surveys, making reels, presentations and basic training. We practice evidence-based therapies such as CBT and REBT only at the centre. Interns shall receive a certificate of completion from Morphic Minds, an affiliated training centre of IAREBT, USA, with hours of internship and evaluation mentioned. Many universities require students to complete a stipulated time in internships under a certified supervisor. Our internship offers a cost-free opportunity to do so. We do not charge nor pay the students during the internship. Students shall be evaluated before they are admitted to the internship.
