CEBTOhio Training Program

For masters and doctoral students in psychology, social work and counseling

CEBTOhio offers practicum/internship training for advanced graduate students in psychology, social work and counseling. Masters and doctoral level students who are accepted into our program spend one full year as an integrated part of our clinical team, learning and implementing evidence-based treatments to help patients with a range of concerns. We offer three distinct training tracks:

  • Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
  • Eating Disorders (CBT-E + FBT)

The CEBTOhio training program is an immersive placement experience. Under the direct supervision of experienced clinicians and mentors, students assist with intake assessments; provide individual, group and/or family therapy; and participate in weekly supervision/training sessions according to their modality of choice. Students within each track will have the opportunity to learn and apply their modality both for adults and adolescents.

How to Apply

Graduate-level students in psychology, counseling or social work are eligible to apply. Placements begin in the fall semester and formally conclude at the end of spring semester, with the exception of the DBT track, which formally concludes at the end of the summer. Placements are unpaid; however, when possible, we seek to transition trainees into paid staff positions following the end of placement.

We accept applications and conduct interviews beginning in February of each year and typically extend offers by mid-March.

To apply, please submit a cover letter and CV to Dean Malec, Ph.D. In your cover letter, please specify the training track for which you are applying.

Seeking qualified clinicians

Experience or interest in EBT required

Our practice leaders are always open to speaking with clinicians with a strong interest in using evidence-based treatments to treat with clients diagnosed with mood, personality and eating disorders. While an ideal team member may already have experience with evidence-based practices, including CBT-E, FBT and Dialectical Behavior Therapy, we welcome discussions with potential applicants who have excellent clinical and communication skills, as well as comfort working with individuals presenting with high acuity.

Possessing willingness and passion to learn and develop mastery with evidence-based practices is key.

If you have these qualities or are interested in developing them, we can teach you the rest. As a member of the CEBTOhio team, you will have access to all of our internal trainings, as well as active participation in our trainings and consultations with leading experts in the field, including our founder Lucene Wisniewski, Ph.D., and Amy Kalasunas, LPCC-S, CCMHC, a DBT-LBC Certified Clinician.

Our practice is largely virtual, and there is no need to relocate if you are interested in joining our clinical team. To initiate a discussion about employment opportunities, submit a resume and cover letter describing your interest and experience to Lucene Wisniewski, Ph.D., at
