Clinical Training

Teaching it Forward

Beit T'Shuvah offers internship training for students pursuing their MFT, MSW and CCAPP licensing. Interns get hands-on experience on the front lines of the recovery process, gaining insight into Beit T'Shuvah's cutting edge treatment approach that integrates the mind, body, and spirit.

Clinical training incorporates:

  • Cognitive-behavioral, developmental, attachment, and psychodynamic approaches
  • Professional supervision from a licensed mentor
  • Partnering with a treatment team comprised of an addiction counselor and a spiritual counselor

Our training program is designed to increase competency levels in:

  • Case conceptualization
  • Clinical skills
  • Case management
  • Crisis intervention

We believe the best way to learn is to witness the transformation of someone battling addiction firsthand. Interns at Beit T’Shuvah observe real life situations, and the cunning, baffling, and powerful force of human brokenness.

Interns in training don’t just complete their required course hours; they sit in groups led by trained professionals and get real feedback, a valuable tool for clinical work as well as life experience. We have 120 residents, and over 2500 community members that participate in Beit T’Shuvah’s spiritual and educational programs each year.

Program requirements:

  • 1 Year training commitment
  • Mandatory weekly supervision
  • Weekly & monthly trainings
  • Must be enrolled in or graduated from an accredited program

Rabbinic Internships

Beit T’Shuvah offers internships to rabbinical students and other Jewish professionals-in-training. The primary focus of the internship is spiritual counseling, learning how to be an advocate for the soul of the resident by translating the wisdom of the Jewish tradition into action. Interns are guided in developing a spiritual program of their own, for personal development and to better serve the residents with whom they work. All inquiries are welcome.

The internship also offers opportunities for engagement through the breadth of the spiritual department at BTS, including leading groups, teaching Torah study, facilitating Shabbat evening or morning services, and other programmatic opportunities. The synthesis of the individualized work of spiritual counseling and the communal opportunities available through our organization offer a unique and enriching experience.

To apply for a rabbinic internship please email Rabbi Miriam Green Potok.
