About the program:

Lionrock’s Post-Master’s Fellowship Program is a one year training program that provides all the training and supervision necessary to collect all required post-master’s training hours for licensure (NOTE: aMFT’s are required to collect 500 Family/Child/Couple hours - Lionrock is an Adult Program and unable to provide those hours).

Highlights

  • Fellows receive one hour of individual supervision per week and two hours of group supervision per week

  • Group supervision will also include didactics to provide ongoing education to enable the Fellow to grow and develop as a counselor with specialized training in the field of addiction medicine.

  • Additionally, fellows will also participate in group supervision twice monthly with various supervision groups for the clinical staff within Lionrock. This will give Fellows the opportunity to meet the entire Lionrock clinical staff over the course of the year and to learn from professionals in the field.

  • Fellows will be given a mentor who is a licensed clinical professional who works as a counselor at Lionrock. They will not be a supervisor but will function solely as a mentor.

  • After the completion of basic organizational and clinical training, the fellows will begin with seeing individual clients for assessment and individual counseling. They will also be creating individualized treatment plans for all their individual clients.

  • Fellows will be given the opportunity to observe several group sessions with several different counselors to help their learning experience.

  • All Fellows will co-facilitate a full IOP Group (3 hours 3 times per week) with a licensed provider.

  • The Fellowship Program requires a 1-year commitment and the ability to work evening hours.

  • All Fellows are given a Baseline Assessment within the first 3 weeks of the Fellowship Program. From this assessment, an Individual Training Contract is created which focuses on specific areas of competence.

  • Fellows receive quarterly evaluations that provide feedback regarding their progress with the areas of competence from their Individual Training Contract.

  • Fellows will be given the opportunity to participate in weekly Staff Self-Care Groups

  • Fellows will also have a weekly peer support group where they are able to connect with each other and discuss their training opportunities and challenges with each other.

  • Fellows will be asked to present at least 4 case presentations over the course of the training year.

  • Upon completion of the training year Fellows are provided with a Certificate of Completion and a Letter of Completion.
