A subset of students present to school with a variety of mental health needs that significantly interfere with overall school functioning. Specifically, students in the LPS network may present with a variety of symptom clusters that include but not limited to depression, anxiety, trauma, eating disorders, and attention issues.

Trainees participating in the Advanced Practicum Training Program have the opportunity to provide individual, group, family and couples therapy services to high school age student and their family within one of the school settings. Trainee's will get in depth training in navigating the school, home and community system and address barriers to learning in an effort to support the LPS student's personal, academic and mental health goals. Advanced practicum students will learn to interact with school system professionals and collaborate with faculty, staff and administrators. Trainees will participate in at least one hour of individual supervision per week with a licensed clinical psychologist and 1.5 hours of group supervision and biweekly seminars designed to support the trainee's personal and professional development. Trainees will be expected to carry a caseload of 7-10 students and be at the school site for 20-24 hours/week.
