Being an Intern at the Center for Child Counseling has been one of the most rewarding and enlightening learning experiences I have ever encountered. I can honestly say that after spending a year working and growing with the Center, I have never known a group of individuals as dedicated, knowledgable, and passionate as those who work and serve at the Center for Child Counseling. With their team of go-getters and exceptional interns, It is no wonder the Center has grown so much and impacted so many in such a short period of time!

I have had such a great internship experience with the Center for Child Counseling. I was able to get trained extensively on how to use Play Therapy with clients as well as other interventions. In addition, I was able to get advice and supervision when needed. Everyone at the Center is friendly and willing to help in any way they can. I am excited to have the opportunity to stay on with the Center as a contract therapist and continue to grow as a clinician.

My experience with Center for Child Counseling as an intern has far exceeded my expectations. Their experienced staff has put an amazing amount of work into the community in helping its youth through counseling, education and support. I feel confident that the clinical skills I have developed at "CFCC" will assist me in my professional goals in working with children.

This review is to encourage and thank those that fund The Center for Child Counseling's internship program! Having completed my masters degree requiring significant time, effort, and expense, the additional requirement of continued supervision with out of pocket cost loomed... imagine my surprise to discover the kind of program offered by the Center for Child Counseling ~ truly a win-win-win arrangement! Through providing small group play therapy sessions in a preschool, I gain valuable experience that contributes to my continued training and growth (my private practice at this time does not afford the opportunity to learn and practice small group play therapy). The children involved benefit, and the cost of my supervision is covered (I am 'paid' to volunteer, as my supervision is 'free' in exchange for my time). This whole concept is simply brilliant and I am utterly grateful and blessed to partake of the benefits this program provides! Thank you, thank you for your continuing support of The Center for Child Counseling's internship program, which offers a rich and fulfilling practicum for Master’s level and Registered Interns!

I have seen firsthand the dedication of this fine group of professionals. Their focus is truly on serving the children of Palm Beach County. Many of them give up time at night and on weekends in order to do just that. I would highly recommend this organization to anyone needing its services.

I have completed my MSW field placement and internship with CFCC. I found the experience to be incredibly enriching and irreplaceable. The staff is filled with dedicated workers who value continuing education and providing aid to at risk communities. This organization is truly a blessing to the Palm Beach Gardens area and are still expanding! I have no doubt they will continue to change lives in a positive manner.

The Comprehensive Play Therapy Training that was conducted by The Center For Child Counseling was one of the best trainings I have experienced since becoming a licensed therapist. I was very grateful for having been selected for the opportunity and decided right away to make the best of it. My main goal in taking the training was to garner additional experience and expertise in working with children. I believed that having this particular experience would afford me the chance to become a more well-rounded clinician in terms of being able to have more diversity in working with different age groups. The Play Therapy training far exceeded my expectations and I was able to far exceed the goal I had set for myself. I acquired such a desire, that I did not know I possessed, in working with children and being able to utilize the Play Therapy model as a vehicle in order to do so. The staff of professional, warm and friendly individuals at the Center for Child Counseling, also made it possible for me to accomplish my goals and complete the training in a fun and relaxed environment. I was given ample opportunity to learn the model and incorporate my own personality in its delivery. Working with my supervisors and the children at the Centers was such an enjoyable and meaningful experience that I miss very much!! Many, many thanks to the Center for Child Counseling and its wonderful staff for such a tremendous experience!!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
