The Clinical Training and Intern Development Program is designed for Master’s Level students pursuing degrees in social work. We aim to provide a comprehensive training in a supportive learning environment. 

Our goal is to develop well-rounded, skilled therapists, that can work with a diverse population in various mental health settings. Interns/Trainees receive a best practice curriculum with an emphasis on culturally responsive client engagement that includes assessment, diagnostic, and treatment skills. The treatment modalities that the interns/trainees utilize are the following: individual, family, and group psychotherapy. All of our practices in documentation responsibilities align with the Board of Behavioral Sciences, National Association of Social Workers, and ethical and legal guidelines. Individual and group supervision is provided. We currently have partnerships with University of California, Los Angeles; University of Southern California; Cal State University Dominguez Hills; Azusa Pacific University; Cambridge College and Columbia University.


Wellnest provided me with the clinical and advocacy tools to work with diverse populations. I will continue to utilize those tools throughout my career to further support and advocate for individuals, families, and communities. I’m thankful for Wellnest’s investment in future social workers!
