Practicum is one of the most exciting and meaningful experiences of a graduate career in Art Therapy and Counseling. Finally, the opportunity to do what you really came to do–---be a practicing art therapist/counselor, helper, and healer. Students who are taking the program via distance do their practicum and internship locally in their community. SWC will guide you on obtaining your clinical experience.
Our on the ground students at SWC do their practicum hours at Tierra Nueva Counseling Center (TNCC). It is an exceptionally inviting and safe place within which to have this experience. We have well-equipped rooms for both art therapy, play therapy and sand play therapy. Licensed faculty members provide close supervision of students’ sessions with clients. Students work with adults, children, couples, families and groups to make positive life changes.
