Internship details

Psychology internships out of Spain provide interns an opportunity to collaborate with a multidisciplinary team of psychologists. Placements include a clinic as well as an online service, which offers self-guided psychological interventions, resources and tools. In both cases, the Psychology placements are dedicated to improving mental health, promoting individual empowerment, self esteem, and working to increase the access of their treatments and services.

The clinic specializes in psychological treatments for couples and families, while also providing services for forensic psychology, severe and chronic disorders, post-traumatic stress disorders, gambling and non-toxic addictions. Virtual support and services are embraced by the practice, as online training and workshops are available, in addition to online patient consultation. Ongoing studies and research are focused on the use of virtual reality in clinical practice, including the speciality areas of mental health, neuropsychology, judicial intervention, physical therapy, speech therapy and art therapy. The clinic’s ethical standards and obligation to prioritize patient wellbeing is at the forefront of their approach, while also working to keep abreast of the latest scientific developments and treatment techniques.

Psychology interns also have the opportunity to work with an organization that offers online audio services via a virtual therapist, with self-guided psychological interventions, resources and tools. This service has been developed after years of research and data analysis and is designed for clients to utilize via an App (on their mobile phone) in order to minimize the impact of stressful situations. The service helps individuals to develop techniques to manage their stress and emotions. The strategies that are utilized stem from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques, as well as Mindfulness and Positive Psychology practices, which have been scientifically proven and validated.

Remote interns who join a psychology internship based out of Spain, can expect to assist with a variety of activities, including:

  • Online consultations
  • Research
  • Contributions to online courses and workshops
  • Organization of events and conferences
  • Developing psychological content which can be utilized for virtual therapy
  • Assisting with translations
  • Digital marketing and analysis of KPIs and statistics from marketing campaigns
  • Helping with the definition and implementation of marketing strategies
  • Interns with IT / Computer Science experience additionally have scope to become involved with software development / app development, as it pertains to the Psychology placement that offers services via a virtual program.

It is important to note that the dominant language for clinical related activities is Spanish. Interns who wish to become more involved with such tasks should have a beginner to intermediate proficiency of the language, otherwise other tasks can be expected. The typical hours of operation in Spain are from 9 am to 2 pm and in the afternoons from 3 pm to 6 pm. Remote interns are not expected to abide by this schedule if you’re based in a different time zone. However, if you have sufficient Spanish language ability and would like the opportunity to observe or assist with online consultations (when it is possible to do so), you will need to be flexible with your schedule in order to align your availability with the appointments.
