Ackerman’s Summer Clinical Practicum is an opportunity for mental health professionals to develop clinical skills in family therapy through live family interviews complimented by lecture, discussion, and case studies.

Trainees will conduct interviews as co-therapists while working as part of a clinical consultation team led by experienced Ackerman faculty. This one-month program focuses on learning relational interviewing skills and systemic approaches to change.

This course is open to social workers, marriage and family therapists, mental health counselors, psychologists, and psychiatrists. Class size is limited to six trainees.
