This year’s Spring Career Fair at the West LA campus had a great turnout in the MFT Trainee / Practicum room (210). Thirteen highly esteemed MFT Practicum Training Agencies eagerly came to meet Pepperdine students and discuss their volunteer and training opportunities. These training sites included:
- Airport Marina
- Center for Individual and Family Counseling
- Counseling Partners of Los Angeles
- Crenshaw Christian ~ Betty Price Counseling Center
- Didi Hirsch
- Los Angeles City College
- Mychal’s Learning Place
- OPICA Adult Day Care
- Outreach Concern
- PUC Schools
- Richstone Family Center
- San Fernando Valley Homebound Program
- Southern California Counseling Center
There was also a great turnout on behalf of Pepperdine psychology students, many of whom even made sure to stop by during their break if they had class that night. Students seems to be especially interested in the opportunity to network and learn about training sites this year, resulting in a constant inflow of students and a filled room of students making connections with the representatives.
The MFT Clinical Training department was thrilled to hear the positive and enthusiastic feedback from many of these practicum sites during and after the fair, including “it was great, there were so many students so passionate about what they want to do,” among many other similar insights.
So, with a great showing of both Pepperdine students and MFT Practicum Training Agencies the Clinical Training Department is happy to call this year’s career fair a major success.
