Are you looking for an internship opportunity to learn, develop and expand your competencies for the assessment and treatment of children with serious emotional and mental health diagnosis that require additional community support to help them meet their needs and achieve their goals? COMHAR's IBHS Children's Program may be for you!

COMHAR's IBHS Children's Program supports children to receive intensive services in the home, school, or community in order to help them reduce or replace problem behaviors with more positive, socially appropriate behaviors.

Interns best suited to the program are those who are flexible, creative, self-driven, and eager to learn and practice. They strive to integrate classroom and real-world learning into their internship work and are unafraid to consider new ideas. They are compassionate and recognize that the individuals served have a broad range of lived experiences that may be influenced by trauma, oppression, and injustice.

Interns for this program will be asked to engage in a variety of clinical activities such as : co-facilitation of clinical groups, individual therapy sessions with children in the home, school or community settings which will enable the participants to live a stable, healthy and safe life in the community. Interns will be required to complete trauma informed trainings. This will be accomplished with the training and development of the interns skills to develop individualized treatment plans, behavioral modification, and incentive plans for children. Interns for this program will be given specific trainings ranging from behavioral health interventions to working with and engaging families of children with behavioral health needs, and also will be given an opportunity to develop clinical documentation skills.
