Eleven graduate students from the Department of Counseling, Clinical, and School Psychology (CCSP) at UC Santa Barbara’s Gevirtz School have earned prestigious 2019-2020 internships across the country to complete their work for a Ph.D. Each year, students in their fourth year of doctoral studies compete nationally for APA-Accredited pre-doctoral internships to complete the applied portion of their degrees. As in years past, this year was extremely competitive with over 4,000 students vying for positions nationwide. Steve Smith, Director of Clinical Training, notes, “The CCSP students consistently obtain high-quality, competitive internships. They are an extremely talented group of students who will continue to represent our program well. More importantly, they will continue to do good work with the clients they will serve in communities across the country.”
