UCLA Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) offers a 20 hour per week field placement to Second Year UCLA Social Welfare MSW students.

A Second Year field placement at CAPS focuses on the development of fundamental clinical skills needed to work with a variety of mental health issues - with an emphasis in working with the university student population. MSW interns will have a primary individual supervisor and will receive a minimum of 1 hour of individual supervision per week. There may also be opportunities for group supervision, didactic seminars and other learning experiences. MSW interns will have experiences in individual and group therapy, assessment and triage, case management, outreach, staff meetings, and multidisciplinary consultation. Interns will audio or video record all of their individual therapy sessions to be viewed by their supervisor and utilized in teaching.
