Many graduate counseling students fulfill their internship requirements by holding actual counseling sessions under supervision at JBU's CARE Clinic. C.A.R.E. stands for Competence, Attitudes and Character, Relationships, and Essential Knowledge, which is exactly what graduate counseling students gain through their internships with the CARE Clinic.
The CARE Clinic system of care has JBU offices in Siloam Springs, Rogers and Fort Smith, the Samaritan House and Church at Pinnacle Hills in Rogers, First Baptist Church in Springdale and LifeSource in Fayetteville. The staff consists of interns who are available to counsel with individuals or families on a regular basis at reduced rates. The interns are under the direct supervision of a JBU graduate faculty member. Licensed counselors are also available for counseling sessions and all faculty and local counselors who use the clinic are licensed by the state of Arkansas.
Not only does the CARE Clinic provide a valuable service to those in the community, but it also provides JBU master's level counseling students in the final stages of their counseling program a place to grow and learn as well as to serve the kingdom of God.
