The David Norton Practicum Program honors Dr. Norton, founder of Centennial Counseling Center. Training the next generation of therapists and passing along years of wisdom was a priority for David from the start. Real life experience outside the classroom was just as important as what students learned in the classroom. Centennial has mentored practicum students since 1995 and will continue to do so into the future.

 

Each year CCC takes a number of masters and doctoral graduate students in psychology, social work, marriage and family therapy, and/or professional counseling. The last few years we have taken:

  • 2 M.A. or M.S. students for therapy practicums
  • 2 Psy.D. students for therapy practicums
  • 1 or 2 Psy.D. students for psych testing practicums


We provide an orientation day and then weekly supervision from one of our experienced clinicians. Clients are assigned as appropriate based on the students interests, abilities, and availability.

The MA/MS interviews occur in early January with notification generally by the end of January.

The PsyD interviews for both types of practicums are in February with notification done in accord to ACEPT guidelines. Below is a table showing various time tables for these programs.
