Training Program Philosophy and Mission


CAPS is committed to providing quality mental health services that meet the needs of a diverse student body by providing a safe, welcoming, and affirming environment during their educational journey.


To be a leading counseling center that eliminates barriers and provides access to services by meeting the mental health needs of our diverse student body.

Training Philosophy:

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is one of eight agencies within The Nebraska Internship Consortium in Professional Psychology (NICPP). Within the CAPS agency, our training philosophy is:

  • To offer supervised experiences to doctoral interns who come from APA-accredited counseling or clinical psychology programs
  • To support the development of intermediate to advanced clinical and professional skills
  • To infuse sensitivity to issues of diversity throughout the training program
  • To allow for an unfolding exploration of one’s professional identity

Each intern has the opportunity to receive a minimum of four hours of intensive supervision per week by a qualified staff member where skills are refined, and the intern’s professional development is enhanced. We believe that personal and professional growth is best achieved when feedback is ongoing and reciprocal, and the training environment is supportive. In addition, each intern’s area of expertise is acknowledged and welcomed.
