Providing Therapy at Compass Family Services
Compass Family Services offers therapy to families engaged in the six Compass programs. Therapy is available for the individual adults in the family, for the couple, for the children and/or for the whole family. Therapy is free for the families and they can be seen for up to a year (or the length of the therapist’s internship). Therapy is voluntary for most families. Some families are mandated by Child Protective Services to engage in therapy and we do work to coordinate required services for these families.
Therapy at CFS means a fair amount of what is often thought of as “Case Management.” Ideal applicant needs to be flexible in their thinking about “what is therapy?” and “what is therapeutic?” Applicants should have an interest in working with clients who have experienced early childhood traumas and are now struggling in their adult lives. CFS offers a wide range of experiences for training. We value the work done in the milieu setting and expect Interns and Trainees to participate in the daily life of a Family Resource Center and/or Shelter. You will gain invaluable experience, not just in performing therapy, but in working in a social service agency in San Francisco. We use an eclectic approach to providing therapy, although you will get experiences doing intakes and assessments with an emphasis on working with a trauma lens or psychodynamic understanding of our clients.

Trainees 12+ hours/week
