Social Work Training Program

At Cabezas Therapy, we take pride in our social work training program. We believe that taking care of ourselves and our communities is essential to our profession. Our program teaches valuable skills and values, such as compassion, integrity, social justice, curiosity, human relationships, and growth.

If you're a second-year social work graduate student within New York State, we invite you to participate in our 9-month practicum training program. The program starts in mid-September and ends in mid-May, giving you ample time to gain valuable experience. We require that you've completed one year of your master's program in clinical social work, and have taken some basic coursework in human behavior and psychotherapy. We prioritize students who have also taken courses on gender, race, and sexuality. Additionally, we look for students who are interested in working with a diverse population and eager to learn within our setting. Although we are New York City based, we also want to enhance access to New Yorkers all over the state.

If you're interested in applying for our program, please send us an updated resume and a cover letter expressing your interest. We'll review your application based on how well you fit within the objectives of our program and how much potential you have to benefit from the experience. We welcome all questions and applications via email to The deadline to apply is May 6, 2023. Those who are invited for an interview will be contacted by May 20th, 2023, and interviews will be scheduled for June 17-19, 2023. We look forward to connecting with you!
