Placements for Psychology interns in Valencia can include private practice, non-profit organizations, social services, creative agencies, and health care centres.
These placements work with a wide range of psychological approaches, including alzheimer’s treatment, psychoanalysis, systemic family therapy, body techniques, family and group therapy, speech therapy, research into treatment and psychological conditions, mediation and career development, psychiatric treatment, education, the use of media and technology to support wellbeing, and much more.
Expected activities for Psychology interns can include, but may not be limited to, administrative support, translation, report writing, treatment observation, assisting professionals with diagnosis and treatment planning, researching areas of need, workshop delivery. Interns may also be provided with research tasks in order to gain a deeper understanding of the treatments offered, or tasks to contribute to ongoing research and the development of technological tools that support psychological treatments.
Interns should expect psychology internships to be of a supportive and observational nature. The inclusion of an intern in any treatment with a patient will always be subject to the clients agreement.
It is important to be prepared for a language barrier, as most patient interactions will be conducted in Spanish. Your supervisor will provide opportunities to debrief following sessions, ensuring you are able to follow the work as it is conducted. However, all interns need to be as proactive as possible to ensure that they’re communicating openly with their supervisor to ensure de-briefs sessions can be scheduled as frequently as needed.
