Our internship is 15 weeks long, 40 hours per week for a total of 600 hours. We accept applications on a recurring basis for all semesters. We are a 200 bed in-patient residential forensic psychiatric branch of the Dept of Behavioral Health & Developmental Disabilities system of GA. The internship is consecutive weekly, no spring/fall break, but with GA state holidays included off. Currently we have three CTRS's in our department and are very interested in growing our Recreation Therapy internship program. Our treatment programming focuses on psychosocial rehabilitation, improved social skills, symptom management, community reentry, and leisure development. Please email me for a copy of our internship manual and application forms. We do require a professional interview as part of our application process (via Skype if out of reasonable driving distance), and this would be scheduled at least two months in advance of the start date.
