LifeSkills, Inc. – Internship program
Program overview -- LifeSkills, Inc. routinely has interns and practicum students fulfill
some functions within our agency. This packet is intended to provide guidelines for
students and staff regarding the different types of internships, application procedures,
travel requirements, and other pertinent information about the internship program.
LifeSkills has operated in Bowling Green and the 10 surrounding counties since 1966.
During this time LifeSkills has distinguished itself as a leader among Community Mental
Health Centers in Kentucky for our consistent use of new and innovative approaches in
the treatment of Behavioral Health disorders. In keeping with this leadership role
LifeSkills strives to offer quality educational internship experiences to individuals
seeking to further their expertise and advancement in a variety of mental health fields and
Each of the freestanding clinics in our 10 county region is staffed with fully certified
and/or licensed Psychologist, Social Workers, Marriage and Family Therapists, and/or
Professional Counselors. During the course of an internship, an individual may also
come in contact with Psychiatrists, Psychiatric nurses, occupational therapists, speech
therapists, school counselors, vocational rehabilitation counselors, and/or recreational
therapists. Each of these professionals offers a unique perspective and approach to the
identification, understanding, and treatment of individuals with behavioral health
disorders from which the intern can gain insight and understanding.
Interns will receive exposure to a wide range of mental health problems and treatment
approaches. Practical experience in working with children, adolescents, and adults may
be offered. An integral part of any internship program is the clinical supervision. Interns
will be assigned a primary clinical supervisor with whom they will be responsible to for
all aspects of their clinical work. Each intern will also be assigned an administrative
supervisor or mentor that may or may not be the clinical supervisor. This mentor will
provide oversight and supervision to all aspects of the intern’s duties and will work in
consultation with the primary clinical supervisor when they are not the same person.
All interns will receive training in traditional mental health theory and practice as well as
some new and innovative treatment options. Master’s level training will include
instruction and practice of individual, group, and family therapy. More specialized
training may also be offered for interns in particular fields of study (e.g. Psychology
interns will receive training in the performing of psychological testing and measurement).
Other possible areas for specialized training include domestic violence, juvenile sexual
abuse and offending, substance abuse, geriatric patients, etc.
Internships are educational experiences offered in conjunction with LifeSkills and a
University as part of a student’s overall educational program. As such interns are
required to have University approval and supervision to be considered for an internship
and must provide liability insurance through the university.
