I’m interning at Commonwealth Catholic Charities in the adoption department. I’m learning the ropes of adoption and foster care and I love it! I’m also training to become certified for the supervised visitation program. I’m learning so much about the field, and I love working with the families!
Dr. Chris Buchholz, associate professor in Roanoke’s Psychology Department, spoke about the Science of Love. It was well attended by RCPA members.
I interned at Carilion Behavior Health Clinic. During my internship, I was able to observe group therapy sessions. These sessions encompassed a wide range of therapy including expressive arts, cognitive behavior, and reality therapy. I was also able to see how the psychiatric hospital ran and learned more about how mental health clinicians and doctors work to help those in need of this type of treatment. I enjoyed this because my future goal is to become a Licensed Practicing Clinician so the hospital allowed me to see the ‘inside scoop’ of how an everyday tasks and goals are performed on individuals with mental illness. My favorite thing to witness was expressive arts therapy because it allowed for the individuals to express themselves in ways that are unique to them.
