Ethics: Interns are given opportunities to discuss and demonstrate understanding of ethics through participation in seminars with staff from APA's Office of Ethics. Moreover, ethical issues are addressed in each of the UCS training activities.
Personal Growth: A major dimension of internship training is personal growth and development. The development and refinement of personal skills is vital to the interns' overall growth as a professional helper. Interns who choose to have therapy experiences are allowed to make necessary scheduling adjustments to explore various resources in the community.
