The Behavioral Health Training Institute in Houston, TX

The Behavioral Health Training Institute (BHTI) at The Council on Recovery offers a multi-disciplinary training experience for undergraduate, graduate and post-graduates interns seeking further training and licensure-hour fulfillment.

The BHTI offers one-year learning opportunities for masters and doctoral students in the fields of social work, counseling, psychology, and family and child therapy, working with adults, adolescents and children. We begin interviewing students in February/March. Those candidates who qualify begin their internship/practicum experience in June and complete the program that following May. We occasionally take students for 1-2 semesters depending upon the need. However, our internship program usually occurs over 3 semesters. Many students take an elective to cover the 3rd semester if their university only requires 2 semesters. Students may choose to work with adults, adolescents, or perform macro duties.

Available opportunities may include:

  • Graduate students interested in multi-disciplinary internship experience may apply for internship openings
  • Graduates seeking licensure-hour requirement fulfillment may apply for volunteer clinical positions and receive licensed supervisory support
  • Post-graduates may apply for fellowships, which are paid training positions that provide didactic and mentorship support

All BHTI interns will have opportunities appropriate for their level of education and experience, including screening and assessments, case management, and (individual, family, group and couples) therapy. Macro social work interns will also gain experience in grant writing, budgeting, quality assurance, evaluations and operations.
