Training Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in Roosevelt University Counseling Center (RUCC). Our current staff consists of four full-time psychologists, three externs, two postdoctoral fellows, four peer advocates, and two support staff. The clinical staff embrace an integrative theoretical orientation that relies upon psychodynamic/relational, multicultural, feminist, developmental, systemic and cognitive behavioral perspectives. RUCC is committed to social justice and multicultural competence and embraces continuing professional development in this area.  RUCC utilizes a time-limited therapy model (12 sessions) but longer-term cases are permitted.  We offer process group therapy and a psychoeducational group for stress management that have no session limits.  RUCC staff believe that supervision and mentoring are essential in helping trainees advance in professional confidence, competence, and autonomy. Our goal is to support and prepare new professionals to practice psychology with skill, creativity, and flexibility in a complex and ever-changing world.
