Summer Treatment Program (STP) Internships
The Center for Children and Families (CCF) at Florida International University announces internship positions for Summer Treatment Program lead counselors, counselors, teachers, and classroom aides. Interns will work in one of three related programs, for children in preschool or entering Kindergarten (STP-PK), children ages 6-12 in elementary school (STP-E), or adolescents in middle and high school (STP-A). Counselors will work with children with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Conduct Disorder Oppositional-Defiant Disorder, learning problems, or other behavior problems. The program provides treatment tailored to children's individual behavioral and learning difficulties. The STP is directed by William E. Pelham, Jr., Ph.D., who is a Distinguished Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry at Florida International University (FIU) and the Director of the CCF.
Dates, hours, and salary information for each available position are listed in the Position Announcements linked below.
Room, board, and travel expenses are not covered by the internship. Each summer, there are many STP staff members from outside the Miami area who are interested in finding roommates. Once accepted to a position, staff members will have the opportunity to join a Facebook group to meet and communicate with other staff members to make housing and carpool arrangements.
Application Information and Materials
Applications for STP staff positions are accepted on a rolling basis. Therefore, there is no cutoff date for applications. Completed applications are reviewed as they are received and interviews are scheduled when applicable. Interviews for most of the STP positions will take place January – April, 2014. Applicants who apply after all positions have been filled will be placed on an alternate list. If a position becomes available at a later date, applicants from the alternate list will be interviewed for the available position.
Instructions for completing and submitting application materials are listed on the Application Form. Students who wish to apply for more than one position should submit only one set of application materials. We receive a large number of applications and the selection process is highly competitive so interested students are encouraged to apply as early as possible.
